Vancouver and Portland are getting prepared to resume Cascadia Cup action this week, and Sunday’s game at B.C. Place will kick off a wild run of three Pacific Northwest rivalry games in the span of eight days.
The Sounders will host the Whitecaps on Oct. 9 and then Seattle will visit the Timbers on Oct. 13.
Portland has to win its next game to have a chance of repeating in the fan-sponsored competition, which predates MLS. The Sounders will reclaim the trophy with a win against Vancouver regardless of the other results; 10 points couldn’t be matched by the other two teams in that scenario.
Either way, each team has two games remaining. Here is a look at the updated schedule, results and standings:
Seattle Sounders FC — 2-1-1 (7 pts.), 0 GD, five goals scored
Vancouver Whitecaps — 1-1-2 (5 pts.), +1 GD, seven goals scored
Portland Timbers — 0-1-3 (3 pts.), -1 GD, four goals scored
