Portland Timbers’ Draw With Revs Sets Stakes Higher Yet

It was quite entertaining in the end, a sort of bizarre back and forth between two teams who shouldn’t have needed to win as badly as they did. The eventual result, a 1-1 draw, was also interesting in that it didn’t conjure up any huge emotive in either side. For Portland, a point on the […]
