The Timbers offense impressed last night at PGE Park. It was a pleasant surprise after a long season of stalwart defensive play but anemic offense.
Assisted by Roger Levesque, Bryan Jordan started things off in the 19th minute, and then just as the brand new giant flag in section 107 was lowered back to the first row he scored again (20th minute, assist by Miguel Guante) to put the Timbers up 2-0.
Toronto scored next, but could not find an equalizer. Miguel Guante bagged his own goal, off a Tom Poltl assist, right before half time to put the boys in green up 3-1.
Levesque assisted again, this time to Lawrence Olum, late in the game. Timbers win 4-1!
As usual SoccerCityUSA has an excellent recap, plus photos and videos (including Olum’s awesome nutmeg and what should have been an assist to give Bryan Jordan a hat trick, but alas the keeper made the save).
Beerdrinker.org also has a great recap, plus photos.
