Wow, that could have been a much different result. We got outplayed much of the game and OCSC threatened our goal way more than we did. Typical Timbers don’t create many good opportunities.
Not sure what all the doom and gloom is about, that was a pretty good match all things considered. No we didn’t play well but can you expect us to play well with that lineup? Second stringers got time and we saw good things from Caliskan, Clegg, and Sulte (not a fan of Griffith though). We bent a bit but didn’t break. Scored some scrappy goals. If we play our starters we beat them handily, more so than we did today
Now granted I couldn’t pay attention to a good bit of the match but I was able to catch the second half and half of the first (the first 23ish minutes)
I dropped my season ticket this season, and since I did I don’t get the Apple+ stream, either. So this was my first actual Timbers sighting this season. And…wow.
I was there for 2012. I was there for some of the bad USL seasons in the Oughts. But this?
We advance so big sigh of relief that we avoid the ultimate humiliation. But just embarassing really from Gio. I want to give the MOTM to Sulte. He seems to be coming along nicely. That's about the only positive (besides the win) I can take away from this match.
Glad that was a cheap ticket.
Jaro saves our blutt just in time. What a weird buildup. But at least we have a cushion.
Their keeper is knocked off a huge high ball that Niezgoda taps in, 3-1 and that’s all folks.
We play like this in the next round and we’re toast.
That’s Nathan’s goal, but happy that Jaro was there to tuck it away!
Well well well, the Dr is back
A tantalizing goal!
OC equalizes in the 89th! But someone is offside, so it’s called back. Whew!
Nathan looks really in his element against these guys
Oh, tantalizing balls...
Yeah, good to know we play hero ball against USL squads.
Fish scored in 101st minute. Now 4-3.
Is this over yet?
So the Fish are now in extra time (two 15 min periods) with the Loyal. And if we don't get our act together, we'll be joining them.
This announcer is doing his best to promote pro/rel.
Fogaca on for Ikoba at 73’
Do we have a 2 RB system?
Sulte has to come up huge in the 68th minute as their guy blasts thru the backline!
Hey, it's 3-3 up north at their sacred pitch!!
So like Gio going to bunker for like 25 minutes?
To put this in perspective; OCFC is 9th of 12 in the USL West this season, 1-3-3, 6pts, GD -3
Rasmussen is getting burned by USL guys. Ouch.
OC pulls one back in the 53rd. Rasmussen beat to the byline, good finish at a tight angle.
This stream tho
Dime by Paredes and Clegg finishes it off. I'll take any effort from any guy to win this match. Starter, depth piece, or pure scrub.
T2 guy Clegg knocks in a free header in the 48th minute, 2-nil
Hey we got a debut goal!
Welcome to the team!
Santi is on (for Loria, I think)
I wish Bonilla would grow. He has a lot of technical ability but just can't figure out how to use it
Shots 7-1 PTFC. SOG 1-1. Possession 52% OC. And we’re outfouling them 7-2 so yay, us.
Looks like going in 1-0. Either the level of play in USL has improved immensely since the pre-2011 USL or this edition of PTFC is tactically inept in ways that Cal FC never imagined…
That’s a relief! Loria hits one thru traffic from the arc and it unsights their keeper, 1-nil.
I honestly don't get what the hell the sub was for. But I guess we know Blanco is healthy?!
Seba off for Niezgoda at the half hour.
I'm sorry did I miss something, did we get substituted a higher division opponent? Because we can't be playing even with a second tier USL team. WTF?
Aww, Blanco with a yellow. He's back!
If we're going to half ass it out there, why not throw any academy kids we do have that are playing with T2? I know we have like one of them, at least. Honestly, it is so embarassing to see Gio just keep repeating the same old mistakes over and over again. Just have Llamosa coach this match. At least we had some excitement last week!
I’m gonna need to drink a LOT more at this rate.
Their #3 dude who looks like Franky in SpyxFamily just ran thru our entire midfield.
Stream keeps dying on me. What I have seen looks like two semi-pro teams playing bad soccer. OC has had a couple good chances. Rasmussen looks like a mid level USL defender which is expected
Sitting back playing the counter against Seattle? I get it.
Against fucking OCFC? Get outta here.
I know Gio loves him some counter…but giving these people this much of the ball? That’s asking to ship a crap goal and go out in the third round.
I cant get CBS Sports Golazo to work. I can see recorded stuff and I see the Timbers OCSC match and it says now playing but when I click it I get nothing.
