PORTLAND, Ore. -- Pa Modou Kah scored in stoppage time and the Portland Timbers rallied for a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas on Wednesday night in the last scheduled game before Major League Soccer takes a break for the World Cup.

Fabian Castillo and Blaz Perez scored for injury-depleted FC Dallas in the first half, but Portland's Will Johnson narrowed it on a penalty kick in the 79th minute in the chippy match that saw two Dallas players sent off with red cards.

Both teams were playing on a short turnaround. Injury-depleted Dallas FC (6-7-4) was coming off a 3-2 victory over Colorado on Saturday.

The Timbers (4-4-8) are winless at home in their last four matches. Portland beat Real Salt Lake 3-1 on Saturday, the team's first victory at Rio Tinto since joining MLS in 2011.

Defender Kah returned to the starting lineup after sitting out the RSL match with sore Achilles tendons. Defender Jack Jewsbury was a reserve after starting 12 matches this season.
