It's early in the Cascadia Cup race, with seven games still left to play in the 2014 MLS season between the Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps. None of the three teams have been able to find three points as both matches have resulted in draws, including a wild 4-4 fixture on Apr. 5 between the Timbers and the Sounders.

The Sounders currently sit atop the table, having played both the Timbers and Whitecaps. Heading into Sunday's match against Vancouver (6:00pm PT, ROOT SPORTS), the Timbers sit in second place (ahead on goals scored tie breaker) and have a chance to grab the lead with a victory on their home pitch.
