PORTLAND, Ore. – The Portland Timbers U-23s take to the road for the final two matches of a four-game road trip on Thursday with a match against Washington Crossfire at Redmond High School in Redmond, Wash., before concluding the road stretch with a Father’s Day matchup against Seattle Sounders FC U23 on Sunday at Tumwater High School in Tumwater, Wash; kickoff for Thursday’s match is set for 7 p.m. (Pacific), while Sunday is scheduled for 2 p.m. (Pacific).
