Timbers, 'Caps muscle out 1-1 draw at Cascadia

Portland keep their unbeaten preseason intact despite Horst's OG

TUKWILA, Wash. – The Portland Timbers kept their unbeaten preseason record intact on Friday night, battling to a 1-1 draw with I-5 rivals Vancouver Whitecaps FC at the Starfire Sports complex in Day 2 of the Cascadia Summit.

A pair of defensive oddities — a mishandled save and an own-goal — gifted each side tallies in the first half of a match that was as wide open as it was physically bruising.

The Timbers eked out the early lead in the fifth minute through midfielder Ryan Pore, though the D-2 holdover was the recipient of a fortunate play.

Trialist Brian Umony — the only player in the Timbers' starting 11 without a contract — drove a low shot from the top right corner of the 18-yard box that 'keeper Jay Nolly could only parry onto the post. The ball spun off the woodwork and into the path of Umony, who finished from barely a yard out.

The 'Caps responded in the 36th minute after Atiba Harris served a pass to the left flank to Long Tan, who shot from 25 yards out. The effort forced a good save from Portland 'keeper Aiden Brown as he moved left, but teammate David Horst was ill-positioned and knocked the ball into his own net.

'Caps close Cascadia with big win over Sounders

Salgado scores in strong 3-2 victory; Seattle's Fucito injured

TUKWILA, Wash. – Vancouver held off a furious Seattle rally in the closing match of the Cascadia Summit on Sunday as the ‘Caps won 3-2 behind a goal from top SuperDraft pick Omar Salgado, who also helped set up the eventual winner.

The Whitecaps also got goals from Russell Teibert and Camilo Sanvezzo in a strong overall performance to cap a weekend that saw them draw Portland 1-1 on Saturday at the Starfire Sports complex.

Roger Levesque had a goal and an assist for Seattle, but the loss was overshadowed by a serious injury to striker Michael Fucito, who was helped off the field with a hip injury in the first half.
