Tacoma Tide FC 1 – 2 Portland Timbers U-23

June 30, 2010
– A defensive miscue just before the half and a late second-half header from the doorstep that found the back of the Tacoma net were the nails that closed the coffin on the Tide FC Wednesday, blowing an early 1:0 lead, to lose to the visiting Portland Timbers U23 2:1.

“We got caught,” said Tide FC head coach Gerry Gray.

After a Daniel Gray scoring strike off a penalty kick in the 36th minute to give Tacoma a 1:0 lead, Portland (10-0-0) responded in the 44th.  Picking up a loose ball and taking it down the left side of the field into Tacoma’s box, midfielder Paul Ogenyumi found enough separation in the Tide FC defense to send a low dribbling shot to the far back corner of the net past a diving Spencer Richey in goal for Tacoma (7-3-2).
