Congratulations to our May 29th Axe Society Members of the Match – Harriet and Richard!

By Nicole Tillett

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Harriet won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Wilmington Hammerheads US Open Cup match on May 29th, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Harriet a few questions after the match:

When was your first match supporting the Timbers?
First home game as an MLS team.  It rained buckets!  Our son and son-in-law used our tickets. They were soaked to the skin and loving every minute of it, while we were home warm and dry watching on TV.  The atmosphere, even on television, was electric.  You could tell this team was something special.

What was your favorite moment of this match?
Piquionne's first goal (and his second, and third, and fourth!)

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?
That's pretty easy - Frederic Piquionne!

What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers at Chicago Fire?
That's easy, too.  The streak will continue - Timbers win by two.

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any gameday superstitions? Favorite pieces of Timbers memorabilia?
We also have Thorns season tickets and are delighted to have so much quality soccer in Portland.  My game day superstition would be my Timbers earrings - wear them all day.  My favorite piece of Timbers gear is a hat autographed by Sal Zizzo.  

Being the Axe Society Members of the Match was wonderful!  The best part was the hospitality of all the staff and getting to visit with Timber Joey.  Thank you for a very special evening.

A big thanks to Harriet and Rich for being our guests and for their fantastic support!
