Final Thoughts

The Portland Timbers are level with the Seattle Sounders in the hunt for this year's Cascadia Cup trophy, but with one less game played. While there are still plenty more Cascadian games left this year, a win tonight over Vancouver would give the Timbers a heft advantage heading into the last couple months of the regular season.
