Timbers playoff hopes take a (mini) fall: Portland Timbers 1 - 2 San Diego Flash


Well luckily Seattle lost 1 - 2 in Vancouver tonight so the Sounders will need 5 points tomorrow in the return match and the Timbers would have to lose in El Paso (and not get a bonus point) for the Timbers not to get a playoff spot. A win or a draw for the Timbers and we get a playoff place. A bit of confusion about the yellow cards tonight (Sancho being called for 2 on the radio report), more on that when the official USL report is up.

Bobby Howe started Jesus Ochoa and Darin Lewis in place of suspended Brian Winters and Michael O'Neill as the Timbers looked to continue their fine run in search of a playoff place. The first-half began with no team dominant, Baena shooting at keeper Hall on 9' and Lewis shooting wide a minute later. The Flash stepped up a gear on 18' winning a couple of corners in quick succession, Napoleon saving twice from Adair. Brent Sancho picked up a yellow on 23' for a foul on Calderson, which means that Brent is facing a 2-game suspension for reaching 33 points. A minute later Martins' shot went off the Timbers post and on 25' the Timbers won a penalty. Greg Howes stepped up, but hit the shot over Hall and more importantly over the bar! The Flash now gained the upper hand and had the majority of possession, but with Baena picking up a yellow on 29' and Napoleon saving from Hetherington on 43', the half-time whistle came and the teams went in 0 - 0.

The second-half started with the Flash continuing their pressure and Jeff Clarke getting a yellow card (another 1-game suspension!!). Chugger Adair shot wide on 50' and Napoleon had to come out to claim the ball with Martins through on 54'. Then as the Timbers put together a forward move of their own Greg Howes received a red card on 58' for what sounded like a high kick on Calderson. Down to 10-men the Timbers seemed to be shocked into action and from their next attack the Timbers were awarded another penalty for presumably handball. Gavin Wilkinson put the kick past Hall to put the Timbers 1 - 0 up!! TIMBERS! The Timbers kept up the pressure, Baena and Chulis having shots blocked on 61' and then substitute Livett's shot was saved by Napoleon on 63'. Jeff Clarke picked up a knock on 71' after a clash with Adair and on 78' Benedetti split 2 defenders to get a shot off, straight at Hall. Napoleon saved at the feet of Adair and with the Flash again pushing forward, Chugger Adair put in a corner from Calderson on 80' to level the scores 1 - 1. With the game getting more physical, a scuffle ending with a couple of yellows (unidentified) and Tolstolutsky and Sawatzky replacing Lewis and Baena, the Flash took the lead on 86' after another corner kick, aimed at Adair, was put in by Alcarez, 2 - 1. 4 minutes of injury time were not enough for the Timbers and the game ended with the Flash winning 2 - 1.
