Interesting and evenly played game, but not many real thrills.
Here’s our story from the Sunday paper.
The best thing was the crowd: 10,184, and good enthusiasm by both team’s supporters clubs.
Sounders are 1-1-2 on the season. The Timbers move to 3-0-2.
“Some of what Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer had to say:
They got what they wanted: They got their point. They didn’t even come out of their half, and it was embarrassing.
“We had our opportunity to get on top and get an early goal that would have forced them to come out. When we didn’t they were able to make little minor adjustments. We weren’t able to get the ball behind their back four with any quality. They just kept everybody back and it was hard for us to get any kind of traction.”
