WFC2 v Portland Timbers 2 – The Story In Pictures

WFC2 v Portland Timbers 2 – The Story In Pictures

Portland on the mantelpiece.

That’s three games this season between Whitecaps 2 and Timbers 2, and chalk up three wins for the good guys. This last one though was very much far from being a classic.

A Daniel Haber goal three minutes from time was what it took to separate the teams in a fairly flat encounter, but the 1-0 win saw the ‘Caps extend their lead at the top of the Western Conference and chalk up back to back home wins before they now head out to four games on the road over the next month.

AFTN photographer Tom Ewasiuk was there to capture all the action before, during and after the game and here’s his “Story In Pictures”, with a full Flickr slideshow at the end.

But knocks it just too far and can’t turn it into the net

Meanwhile, Portland do have the ball in the net, but it’s clearly offside
