The 2018 season is going to feature a different, yet familiar, looking Portland Timbers team.

A win on the final day of the season secured not only the Cascadia Cup as the top team in the Pacific Northwest, but also the first seed in the Western Conference playoffs. Optimism ran high, but injuries derailed the side against the Houston Dynamo as they lost, 2-1, over the two legs.

Just like MLS Cup 2013 in December, 90 minutes could not separate Sporting KC and Real Salt Lake on Saturday night at Sporting Park. This time though there was no extra time and penalty kicks to decide the winner. Instead both teams walked away with one point after the 0-0 draw.

Salt Lake started the game off with some high pressure, which created an early opportunity for Olmes Garcia who got some space on KC's left and fired an effort just over the bar.
