The Portland Timbers stayed perfect in the 2020 preseason, taking a 3-0 result against Costa Rican side CS Herediano on Sunday.
Neither side broke through until the final moments of the second 30-minute period, when the Timbers were awarded an indirect free kick that Mora slotted home past a charging goalkeeper and a wall of defenders in front of goal.
It would stay 1-0 until midway through the final 30-minute period, when Asprilla doubled the advantage with a breakaway finish.
Asprilla would then factor into Portland's third just moments before full time, sending in a cross that deflected off a Herediano defender for an own goal to round out the scoring.
The result moves the Timbers to 3-0-0 during their preseason slate of matches in Costa Rica, coming off a 2-1 result over Saprissa on Feb. 1 and a 3-1 victory over Municipal Grecia on Feb. 5. Portland will now head home to Providence Park for their final three matchups of the preseason, all against MLS opponents, starting with a Cascadia bout with the Vancouver Whitecaps on Feb. 16.
