Portland Timbers Unable To Capture Second Victory
Monday, April 13, 2015
Unfortunately, the outcome wasn’t one that the Timbers were hoping for. The physicality of the match proved too much for the Timbers as they lost 0-2.
The expectation entering this match was that the Timbers would be able to carry over the momentum from last week’s win over FC Dallas, but unfortunately it didn’t happen.
During the 30th minute an over-the-top ball made its way to OCSC’s Kevin Molino, who then crossed it to Cyle Larin who was able to chest in the pass right by Timber’s goalie Adam Kwarasey.
Portland was able to stay close during this match until it came to the very end.
At the 85th minute Kwarasey was called for a foul in the box on OCSC’s substitute forward, Carlos Rivas. Kwarasey luckily saved the initial penalty kick, but Portland’s Diego Chara was called for encroachment, which gave OCSC another opportunity. OCSC’s Kaka was then able to bury the penalty kick to put his team up 2-0.
The Timbers, who are now 1-2-3, will head to the east coast as they prepare to take on New York City FC next Sunday.
