The Timbers and Whitecaps played to a 0-0 draw Saturday night at PGE Park. The Timbers have not won a game in 6 tries, and the Whitecaps have set a franchise record for futility: 10 games without a win (which they then extended to 11 games Sunday night in a draw with Minnesota).
The Timbers have one regular season home game and five road games left in the regular season. Still in first place, they’ll need to start scoring goals to stay near the top of the standings.

On the bright side a Montreal/Rochester-esque 8,652 fans came out for the game. That’s over 8000 for the last two games, and no doubt the final Thirsty Thursday on the 23rd will find PGE Park (relatively) packed.
