The first half was a physical affair with the Sounders U23 getting behind the Timbers U23 with Will Bagrou narrowly missing a one on one with Jordan Farr, the goal keeper for Portland. Farr was very busy in the first half with the Sounders U23 pouring on the pressure. The teams went into halftime 0-0.
In the second half, the Timbers U23s held off a Sounders U23 onslaught with quality defending, keeping the Sounders U23s off the board. Antley’s timely run late and subsequent finish ended the night for the home side happy to gain three points.
The Sounders U23 will be right back on the field facing the defending PDL Western Conference Champion Calgary Foothills on Sunday, May 21st at Sunset Stadium in Sumner. The two teams finished in the top of the tough NW Division of the PDL in 2016 so the game will not disappoint.
