PORTLAND RAIN VS. EUGENE METRO FC
JULY 15, 2012, 3:00PM
GLADSTONE HIGH SCHOOL, 18800 PORTLAND AVENUE, GLADSTONE, OR
LIVE TWEETING @CascadiaFooty
The Portland Rain (4-3-2, 14pts.) will close out the 2012 season by hosting Eugene Metro FC (3-2-4, 11 pts.) on Sunday at Gladstone HS at 3:00PM in the second meeting of the season. In the first match on June 15 in Eugene, Portland was victorious 2-1 on goals by Ellie Boon and Whitney Pitalo.
Portland comes into the game after a disappointing 1-0 loss last Sunday to Spokane. With their playoff homes on the line, Portland couldn't muster the offense without star striker Ellie Boon, who was out for undisclosed reasons, even though they played most of the second half with Spokane on the defensive.
Eugene comes into the game on a four game unbeaten run (2-0-2) since their first match against Portland, with wins over Spokane and Oregon Rush while drawing Issaquah SC and Emerald City FC.
Both teams look to close out their seasons on a high note. Following this match, many of the players on both sides will return to the field with their respective high school or college teams, with training beginning in early August.
