Longshoe at the entertaining Atlanta-area soccer blog Who Ate All the Cupcakes (not to be confused with the self-proclaimed “best football blog on the planet” Who Ate All the Pies*) has posted thoughts on
Saturday’s match in Atlanta between the Timbers and the Atlanta Silverbacks. Here are some highlights:
- I was really impressed with the Timbers. They beat Vancouver on the West Coast on Thursday night, and didn’t look worn down last night after the cross country flight. Will they have anything left for Charleston today? They were also missing their leading scorer Andrew Gregor due to yellow card accumulation. The Timbers have now won seven in a row.
- Portland might have the best defense in the league. They now have ten shutouts on the year. They kept the quality scoring chances to a minimum. Rios had the best chance on a nice layoff from Antoniuk, but the Portland back-up keeper stoned the 1v1 attempt.
