Portland Timbers Fall to the Vancouver Whitecaps

Saturday, March 28, 2015

 

On Saturday night the Vancouver Whitecaps hosted the Portland Timbers at BC Place. Throughout the match the Timbers dominated the time of possession, yet they still came up short. In the end the Whitecaps were able to secure a 2-1 victory over the Timbers. 

The Whitecaps started the match by scoring an early goal at the 15-minute mark. Forward, Nicolas Mezquida, was awarded an early free kick that he was able to capitalize on. His shot snuck into the left side of the net past Timbers keeper, Adam Kwarasey.

The Timbers were finally able to get back into the match and score a goal at the 82nd minute. Rodney Wallace’s pass was deflected into the path of Fanendo Adi. Adi was then able to put the ball into the back of the net. This goal tied the match. 

Although the Timbers had a few chances to score the winning goal in the closing minutes it was the Whitecaps who were able to take advantage and secure the victory. After a miss by the Timbers’ Adi, the Whitecaps’ veteran striker, Robert Earnshaw, was able to push the ball up the field and chip the ball over Kwarasey for the game winner.

This was the Whitecaps’ third straight win on the season, while the Timbers are still searching for their first victory. 

Both teams face tough home games next Saturday. The Whitecaps will host the Los Angeles Galaxy, while the Timbers host FC Dallas.
