Round two of the Portland Timbers home and away saga against the Colorado Rapids kicks off tonight at 6:00 pm as the Timbers desperately look for both their first road win (much needed for morale) and three more points. If they do indeed win tonight it would see the Timbers leapfrog Chivas USA to become the 7th place team in the Western Conference and come within only three points of over taking FC Dallas with 2 games in hand.

Fresh off their first win in a long time, the Portland Timbers remain at home this week to take on Western Conference rival the Colorado Rapids in a two game, home and away series.

WASHINGTON -- Three red cards, two controversially disallowed goals and a missed penalty by a reigning MVP with the game in the balance. Just another run-of-the-mill outing for rivals D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union.

When the dust settled after a series of hard tackles, lost tempers and focus-altering calls by referee Mark Geiger, the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in front of 12,312 at RFK Stadium, with Brian Carroll's eighth-minute tally being offset by Amobi Okugo's 64th-minute own goal.
