Congratulations to our August 17th Axe Society Members of the Match – Cathy and Mark!

By Nicole Tillett

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Cathy and Mark won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. FC Dallas match on August 17th, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Cathy a few questions after the match:

When was your first match supporting the Timbers?

We started attending Timbers games regularly in 2009 with limited attendance prior to that.  One of our first memories was the raising of the banner honoring Clive Charles—we’re UP grads and long-time UP supporters and it was very special to be there that night.

What was your favorite moment of this match?

Our favorite moment tonight was Nagbe’s goal—a run of play goal with an excellent assist by Valeri.

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?

Diego Valeri—he’s the lynch pin in the middle and playmaker—two assists tonight.

What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers versus Real Salt Lake?

 Timber win 2-1—very similar game to Dallas—hard fought, possession oriented, many fouls

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom?

We enjoyed our Axe experience but are looking forward to being back with our SD2 friends—can’t beat the first row off the field for being in the action!

A big thanks to Cathy and Mark for being our guests and for their fantastic support!
