PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Denis Bouanga scored his first Major League Soccer goal in stoppage time and LAFC clinched the Supporters Shield with a 2-1 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday.

LAFC (21-8-4) had already earned the top seed in the playoffs and a first-round bye with the best record in the league. It is LAFC's second Supporters Shield in four years.

"We envisioned making the playoffs this year, but certainly this was beyond our expectations," LAFC coach Steven Cherundolo said.
