Two soccer teams competing for supremacy in a single match? That’s a game; a futile endeavor of 90 minutes trying to put the ball in the back of the net more times than the other team. It’s merely a simple competition. Now, two soccer teams competing for supremacy of the Pacific Northwest? Well, that warrants a different definition entirely.
The Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders continuously dual back and forth on the pitch a few times a year with such voracity and evenness that it’s not impractical to see this competition as one of the best soccer match-ups in North America. Now they have met in the playoffs for the first time and for tonight’s second match, people are salivating. With such pure competitive spirit on the field and unflinching devotion from the fan-bases in the Pacific Northwest, it seems that soccer may be demanding more national attention than what some people may think.no comments
