Cascadia Cup to wrap up in one busy stretch
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
