Congratulations to our September 8th Axe Society Members of the Match – Sue Tomita and Gregory Piercy!

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Sue and Gregory won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Colorado Rapids match, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Sue a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?
"
The stadium sparkled! Timbers Army so large in number and voice! Team in their uniforms looked so good, played so well. So exciting to be a part of a happy group of spectators!! We got such a buzz!"

What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?
"
The VAR overturned the potential PK and Blanco’s incredible drive that led to his assist for Ebobisse’s first MLS goal!"

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  
"
Blanco"

What is your prediction for the next MLS match – Timbers at Houston Dynamo?
"
Timbers 2-1."

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any gameday superstitions?
"
We moved back to Seattle three years ago, kept our season tickets, and have been driving down to Portland for the games. We can’t live without you!! (No, we did not buy Sounders season tickets! I know you are wondering.)

And I wear the same Timbers jersey and drink from my Timbers coffee mug every morning."

Congratulations Sue and Gregory! And thank you for your continued support!
