7:15 — Both teams taking the field. Sounders FC in rave green. Timbers in black.
7:21: Smoke bombs from Timbers Army. Looks like Sounders FC people set them off too.
7:23 game on. Someone from Seattle fans side just threw a smoke bomb on field.
1 — GOAL SEATTLE…..King to Nyassi, who crosses to Levesque for the header and it’s in.
The goal celebration is priceless. Jaqua pretending to chop down Levesque, who acts like a tree and falls over. 1-0 Seattle.
5 – Caution to Ianni
8– Keita shoots just wide of Keller, close to a Portland goal.
13- Shot by Josten over the goal and Keller’s head.
18- Nyassi with a wicked bouncer shot knocked down by Cronin.
25 — Nyassi gets a failed clearance and fires over Cronin and the goal. Sounders FC have six shots on goal.
26 – Yellow on David Hayes of Portland.
27 — GOAL SEATTLE — King with the blast that looked like it got redirected ever so slightly. They’re saying Jaqua got an assist but he started the run. 2-0 Seattle.
30 — Hurtado with a header that should have gone in but Hayes is on the end line to head it out. Sounders FC is dominating.
35 — Josten heads it just over the goal for Timbers.
43 — GOAL TIMBERS — Keita with the bullet right on goal, assist Hayes. 2-1 Seattle.
HALF 2-1 SEA
Second half, no Seattle subs.
Official attendance — 16,382, largest crowd since Timbers joined USL in 2001. First sellout in that time span. Congrats to both teams.
49 — Suzuki, who is Ichiro’s good buddy (that’s the truth) makes a run and shoots a low dribbler wide of Keller.
52 — Jaqua scored but ruled offside.
53 — The pass comes in to Keita in the middle and his header just misses. Lots of fight left in the Timbers.
59 — Nyassi yellow. Timbers look more aggressive with the attack.
61 — Yellow on McManus, who subbed in at halftime, and Le Toux is down.
66 — Montero in, Le Toux out. Surprise move. This could get even more interesting.
67 — Hurtado takes Josten off the ball with a tackle, crowd wants a foul.
68 — Hurtado is down momentarily. Think Sigi doesn’t want to win? Sin duda — No doubt, with Montero in there.
74 — Deflections in front of the net, but Cronin with save and Sounders FC is stymied again.
75 — Nyassi is down and alone in the NE corner of the field and it looks like someone threw a bottle at him. The Timbers fans are incensed.
78 — Montero with a nice elbow on the dribble. Love it. He’s starting to get it, as in the physical style of this nation.
79 — Jarrod Smith in, Nyassi out.
82 — Gaffe leads to a Portland corner that results in a goal kick.
90 — 5 min stoppage time
90 + – Wahl in for Seattle, Levesque out.
FINAL WHISTLE 2-1 Seattle wins, KC Wizards next in Open Cup.
