Timbers Two in a Row

The Portland Timbers were on the road this evening, playing the Minnesota Thunder back in the land of ten thousand lakes. I followed the game online via the official Timbers web site and it seemed like an exciting match, with plenty of shots on goal and ultimately, only one that mattered. Forward Byron Alvarez headed it past Thunders' keeper Joe Warren in the 34th minute from a cross by Timbers' midfielder Hugo Alcaraz-Cuellar. Kiki Lara from the Thunder fired in a shot late in the second half to equal things up, but the midfielder was offside and the goal was ruled dead on arrival. Portland win 1-0 and now find themselves fourth in the league.

Next weekend the Timbers play the Seattle Sounders on Friday up north, and then at home here in P-town on Saturday against the same nefarious bunch.
