Portland Finally Gets Fired Up and Wins a Game
Things were looking bleak as for nearly 447 minutes the Portland Timbers had not scored a goal. That all changed in the 20th minute this past weekend when Eric Brunner was in the right place and the right time and put one in the back of the net. The good news was that in the end we won the match 2-1. That is good for fans because we finally saw the Timbers play very passionately and do what they were set out to do — win games and score goals.
This was better than what they had been the past couple of weeks as they turned up the heat. The Timbers did amazingly by playing very aggressively. As we celebrate and move forward our next match is a friendly against La Liga team Valencia and their hot Spanish soccer players!
On a personal note, I haven’t posted in a bit as I was busy with graduations and weddings and I had no time to do posts related to the games that had been played previously (Montreal, Houston, and Columbus) as there was nothing interesting about the games to post. I just did not know what to write for nil-nil games. Thanks again my peeps!
