Congratulations to our June 9nd Axe Society Member of the Match – Mark and Sean Davis!

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Mark and his son Sean won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Sporting Kansas City match, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Mark a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?
"
My early memories of the Portland Timbers center around the NASL era. I was a student at PSU during 1976-1980 and attended two or three Timbers matches each season. The match I recall most did not involve the Timbers, but the 1977 Soccer Bowl with the Sounders vs. [New York] Cosmos for the NASL title. It was Pele’s last competitive match and NY prevailed 2-1. There were bleachers set up along the east sideline and the stadium was rocking with about 35,000 in attendance."

What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?
"
My favorite event in the match was [Modou] Jadama getting his first MLS action."

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  
"
Jeff Attinella was by far the Man of the Match for the Timbers: another clean sheet."

What is your prediction for the next MLS match – Timbers at Atlanta United?
"
Atlanta is a tough match: I hope for a draw."

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom?
"
The Timbers organization from the field to the office is top notch. The employees strive to make the fan experience second to none. Merritt Paulson has created a blue ribbon organization."

Congratulations Mark and Sean! And thank you for your continued support!
