Reno 1868 FC emphatically extended its 13-match unbeaten streak Saturday with a 1-0 win over Portland Timbers 2.

In front of a crowd of 4,603 screaming fans at Greater Nevada Field, Reno nearly added another draw to its unbeaten streak that’s lasted over two months.

That’s when sub and forward Danny Musovski came to the rescue scoring his fifth goal this year in the 81st minute off an Antoine Hoppenot assist.

The assist was Hoppenot’s seventh this season, putting him second in the league while Musovski’s goal tied him for most on the squad this season with fellow forward Brian Brown.

Reno was thrilled to end the night with three points after perhaps one of its poorly played matches this season. Reno avoided conceding goals on wide open Portland shots (13 total) and finally converting after 12 total shots (three on target).

The win was Reno’s third in its past five matches and propelled the club to fifth place in the USL’s Western Conference standings putting the club three points from a Top 4 spot. The Top 4 in the West host a home playoff match in the postseason.

Reno will have an extremely quick turnaround hosting Western Conference leader Real Monarch SLC Tuesday at Greater Nevada Field. The match could help Reno build on its playoff hopes and will feature post-match fireworks.

Kickoff for Tuesday’s match is set for 7:15 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the box office at Greater Nevada Field or at
