Portland gets its first road win of the season, 1-0 in Vancouver, and with it the 2012 Cascadia Cup. The Timbers went 3-1-2, Sounders 2-1-3, Whitecaps 0-3-3.Pregame: The Sounders meet FC Dallas at 6 p.m. at CenturyLink Field. But before that game comes the scoreboard-watching.
The scoreboard being watched hangs above the pitch at BC Place, where the Portland Timbers will meet the Vancouver Whitecaps. The game will be shown live on Root at 4 p.m.
The Sounders are root, root, rooting for the home team, because of Whitecaps win or tie keeps the Cascadia Cup in Seattle for another season. (Portland takes the Cup if they can manage a win on the road -- something they haven't done all season.)
The Hoops, however, are pulling for Portland, as a Timbers win or draw keeps Dallas' playoff hopes alive. And they'll likely know before their first kick tonight.
