Tide vs Portland - Saturday, May 23 @ 7pm - Curtis HS Stadium
The Tacoma Tide gave fans their money's worth last weekend for the 2009 home opener. It took a 90th minute goal from Nick Besagno for the Tide to come away with a 4-3 victory over the Cascade Surge of Salem, Oregon. Besagno's goal gave the Tide their first victory of the young 2009 season and the team now hasn't lost at home since 2006.
This Saturday the Tide will host the Portland Timbers U-23s. The Timbers (2-1-1) are currently tied for second in the Northwest Division with seven points through four games. The Timbers are coming off their first loss of the season after falling to the Seattle Wolves 3-1 on Wednesday in Tukwila. Despite scoring only one goal, the Timbers still lead the PDL's Western Conference in goals scored with 15. The Timbers offensive skill was on display last week when they poured in eight goals against the Spokane Spiders en route to an 8-2 victory.
