Final: Vancouver comes from behind twice to take a 2-2 draw with Portland. Camilo’s tying goal (above) is an instant MLS Goal of the Year contender … maybe favorite.

The result keeps the Whitecaps six points out of playoff position with three matches to go. It moves Portland to within one point of second-place Seattle in the Western Conference, but eliminates the Timbers from Cascadia Cup consideration.

The Sounders take the cup with a win or a draw Wednesday when the Whitecaps visit CenturyLink Field.

Pregame: Portland visits Vancouver at 5 p.m. today. The game is being shown on Root.

Here’s a preview from MLSsoccer.com. And click here for updates as the game moves along.

Portland must win to remain alive in the 2013 Cascadia Cup race. However, regardless of tonight’s result, the Sounders would clinch with a win over the Whitecaps on Wednesday at CenturyLink Field.
