Crystal Palace Baltimore make their PGE Park debut today, Thirsty Thursday, May 13, 2010, at 7pm. This is the team’s inaugural year in the first division team (well, technically USSF Division-2, but you know what I mean). Crystal Palace Baltimore played in the USL 2nd division from 2007-2009. This will be the first time they have faced the Timbers.
Former Timbers Chase Harrison and Takuro Nishimura are familiar faces on the Palace roster. The team is 0-3-1 on the year, but that draw came on the road against a tough Vancouver team last weekend.
And possibly today, Mandjou Keita will return to the field for the Timbers . . .
But that’s about all I know. These guys have a better handle on this matchup:
