Portland Defeats Houston 2-0 in Pre-season

Portland came out in a 4-5-1 and Nagbe saw his first action of the pre-season as Portland defeated the Houston Dynamo 2-0. The goals came from Captain Jack Jewsbury (on an assist from Ryan Kawoluk) and James Marcelin.

From the tweets Bright Dike started as the lone man up top, with Songo'o playing either as a withdrawn striker or an attacking mid. The defense was pretty shaky in the early goings, but Troy Perkins made some nice saves to keep the clean sheet. More information and recaps as we get them.

Starting line-up:

Portland's Starting 11 Perkins; Palmer, Brunner, Danso, Wallace; Alhassan, Jewsbury, Songo'o, Chara, Alexander; Dike

Subs: 46' Nagbe > Alhassan, 54' Kowaluk > Palmer, 62' Marcelin > Chara, 66' Balcazar > Jewsbury, 72' Ibarra > Alexander, Rincon > Songo'o, Perlaza > Dike, 82' Chabala > Wallace

Houston's Starting 11 Hall; Sarkodie, Cameron, Sturgis, Recio; Emerson Sato, Moffat, Watson, Arreola; Kandji, Bruin.
