Timbers put it away, y alli viene El Sol

“…and here comes the Sun.” As in the Sonoma County Sol.

David Hayes just made a PK, and Jason McLaughlin put in a goal moments ago and Portland has this one in the bag with a late flurry of goals in the closing minutes. Final: Timbers 3, Pumas 0. Green smoke bomb from Timbers Army.

That’s one more step toward Sounders FC for Timbers. I’m told that Timbers won’t host their second round game vs. USASA’s Sol because of scheduling conflicts with AAA baseball Beavers at PGE Park.

UPDATE: Portland at Sonoma County at Santa Rosa HS, 7 p.m. June 16.

If Portland can win that one on the road against an amateur adult team next week, it would appear that Sounders FC would be its next opponent in Round Three. That game could be hosted by the Timbers, I’m told. It would be around June 30.

Stay tuned!
