MATCH RECAP | Portland Timbers 0, Seattle Sounders FC 1

PORTLAND, Ore. – Despite holding a 22 to 6 advantage on shots and controlling the run of play for much of the match, the Portland Timbers lost 1-0 to Seattle Sounders FC Saturday night at Providence Park. Seattle's lone tally came in the 76th minute via an own goal.

Match Moments

9' - CHANCE (POR) - On a Timbers corner kick into the box, defender Julio Cascante headed the ball just above the crossbar.

49' - CHANCE (POR) - Timbers midfielder Diego Valeri, carrying down the right channel, uncorked a dipping, swerving shot towards the near post that Seattle goalkeeper Stefan Frei had to spring to his right to parry away on the short hop.

71' - CHANCE (POR) - Defender Zarek Valentin, deep in Seattle territory, cut the ball back, lost his defender and then lofted a ball towards the back post. Forward Samuel Armenteros headed it back towards goal but just over the bar.

76' - OWN GOAL (SEA) - Against the run of play, Seattle defender Kim Kee-hee cut down the right side into the Portland 18-yard box. His cross deflected off the feet of Portland defender Cascante and into the back of the net for a 1-0 Sounders lead.
