Reds and yellow all around, Timbers and Aztex draw 1-1 in hard fought match by Allison Andrews at The Timber Mill
In a match that would feature two ejections, eight yellow cards, and a lot of physical play, it would be the Timbers that would take an early lead on a goal by Bright Dike, but Sullivan Silva would tie it for Austin 22 minutes later. Though the Timbers would play much of the second half with a man advantage, they could not capitalize, and would end the night with a disappointing 1-1 draw in front of 14,985 at PGE Park. [more]

The Timbers play their final four regular-season matches on the road.

The stadium’s 10-year agreement with Portland General Electric is up after this year when the Portland Beavers are being displaced by renovations to turn the stadium into a suitable venue for the Timbers’ move to Major League Soccer. [more]

S365 – How are you enjoying Portland?
IJ – I am absolutely loving life in Portland. After missing almost a whole year last year with injuries I needed to play games and try to stay healthy, I have been very fortunate that I have managed to do that here. A little help from Head Coach Gavin Wilkinson giving me the odd rest now and again goes a long way into giving my body the right time to recover and stay in good condition. [more]
Pore Is Money in the Bank for the Timbers by Oakley Brooks at EnzymePDX
Call him the Iceman.
Ryan Pore has taken six penalty kicks in USSF Division-2 Pro League games this season and hit all six. That’s nearly half of his league-leading 13 goals, and more important for the Timbers, the successful penalties have meant the difference in points-earning wins or ties four times. The midfielder’s latest secured a 1-0 victory over Minnesota in the 68th minute Saturday night and left Portland in fourth place in the league, five points shy of regional rival Vancouver. [more]
