The Portland Timbers are Portland, Oregon's entry in the USL First Division, the second tier of professional soccer in the United States.
The Timbers' hardcore fans are known as the Timbers Army.

 VANCOUVER 1 PORTLAND 0
Portland had taken the first game 3-1 for only their second positive result of the season.
Maybe it was a case of tired legs at the beginning for Vancouver and at the end for Portland: the game fizzled out of the gate, being hampered by close marking, closer refereeing, and an inability to hold on to the ball for any measurable length of time.
The Timbers defence dealt capably with the problems that were being created, until the 56th minute when the Whitecaps almost stole the opener.

 VANCOUVER 1 PORTLAND 1
By about the mid-point of the half, it was the Timbers that were carrying the play, and the Whitecaps had to endure some nervous moments: McKinley Tennyson was a presence all evening, but his opportunities were limited by the inability of the supporting cast to get the ball to him with any accuracy.
Timber forward Fadi Afash chased the apparent lost cause to the endline before hooking over a cross that deflected off someone in front and landed right at the feet of Jake Sagare who side-footed the ball into the goal for the opener.
Portland were content at that point to put all available players behind the ball, leaving big Tennyson to handle the goal scoring chores.

Portland Timbers radio announcer Andy McNamara has been nominated as a finalist for the 2005 Sportscaster of the Year for the state of Oregon, an award presented annually by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association (NSSA).
