1. A Star is Born in Portland

Some six years and a handful of weeks ago, Jake Gleeson started the Portland Timbers' MLS home opener as a fresh-faced 19-year-old. Those were heady days for the New Zealander, who got the call in Troy Perkins' stead near the beginning of that debut season.

Now we have just over two months to go until the start of the 2016 season for the Portland Timbers' USL side, so let's take a look at just what the T2 roster is looking like these days.

The Timbers put themselves into a two goal hole in the first half.

T2 beat S2 for the first time ever last week. With a 1-0 win at Providence Park, T2 took all three points against the worst team in the USL West, Sounders 2. It was Villyan Bijev who got his first goal for T2 and the defense secured a shut out against a misfiring S2 attack. With Bijev's first goal for T2, that makes 8 different players who have scored for T2, and McIntosh got his 2nd shutout of the season while Hamilton continues first team bench duty to cover Jake Gleeson.
