- David Dir@BigDfutbolOnly Portland's second win of the year at home . Who would have predicted that at beginning of year #PORvCOL big 3 but still not a believer
- Burgundy Wave@BurgundywaveBoth Timbers goals were great on their part, so I'm struggling to blame the defense for this result. #Rapids96
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC90+2' - CHANCE! Ball out to open Urruti on the left. His low shot is knocked away. #RCTID
- CHANCE: Maxi Urruti has an open look but sends it right at Irwin
- 90'+2'MRodney WallaceF#6Darlington Nagbe

- MLS Nerd@MLSnerdWho does Watts think he is going for that chip? #PORvCOL

- Dan@dxr68Alvarez has been awful #PORvCOL
- MISS: Jared Watts has space but flubs the opportunity
- Chris Balanca@chrisbalancaDid not expect this great late night MLS action between Portland and Colorado, awesome game so far. #PORvCOL
- D-Rock@drocklee27Man, Providence Park is rockin' right now #PORvCOL
- 83'FKamani HillMDillon Serna
- Davin Lassiter@MisterLassiterReally? Timbers have been running into themselves and almost own goaling and then score THOSE two goals. #PORvCOL
- Colorado Rapids@ColoradoRapidsA moment of magic from Valeri and Timbers are now up 2-1. Brilliant strike from 25 yards into top corner. That turned quick for #Rapids96
- 77'2 - 1M#8GOAL: Diego ValeriGoals this Season: 4
- Portland Timbers BRA@TimbersBRA71' Portland Tiki-taka Timbers! Grande jogada que terminou em assistência de Jewsbury para gol de Urruti! 1-1 #PORvCOL
- Burgundy Wave@BurgundywaveI mean, theoretically someone could have covered him in the box, but that would be silly. #Rapids96
- Tim Froh@TimFrohThat's Urruti's 7th goal this season. But Caleb Porter, by all means please continue to keep him on the bench. #PORvCOL
- Josie Becker@JosieBeckerFCAnd that's why you change the point of attack quickly #PORvCOL
- Eduardo Mendez@Mendez_FCBeautiful build-up there. #PORvCOL
- Christian Wise@christianwise00Portland isn't completely trash #PORvCOL
- Colorado Rapids@ColoradoRapidsTimbers tie it in 72nd min, as Jewsbury gets to the endline and crosses for Urruti, who sneaks in at near post and finishes. #PORvCOL
- 72'1 - 1F#37GOAL: Maximiliano UrrutiGoals this Season: 7
- Chip Thomas@chipthomasincoWatts just isn't impressing me #Rapids96
- Juicy Dre@aht4005I bet Alvarez is so glad to be away from Chivas USA. #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC67' - Chara, who's been on all night, sneaks ball away, starts counter. Urruti's final ball into box is cleared by COL defense. #RCTID
- Ian Hest@IanHestAdi & Zakuani double subbed off for Portland, Gabriel Torres subbed on for Colorado...this game is all sorts of messed up right now #PORvCOL
- 65'FGabriel TorresM#94Marlon Hairston
- Burgundy Wave@BurgundywaveThis is easily Mwanga's best game as a #Rapids96, I'll give him that. Still, that tells you something.
- MLS Nerd@MLSnerdKlute on the low socks bandwagon, please let this trend die. #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC61' - Double sub for POR: Gastón Fernández in for Steve Zakuani and Maximiliano Urruti in for Fanendo Adi. #RCTID
- 61'F#37Maximiliano UrrutiF#9Fanendo Adi
- 61'FGastón FernándezFSteve Zakuani
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC60' - Hard angle FK from COL but Ridgewell expertly heads away. #RCTID
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC58' - Timbers with sustained possession in the near corner. Jewsbury's final cut back pass for Adi but COL defense knocks away. #RCTID
- Peter Soeth@milehighsoapboxMwanga, you always rub the back post on shots like that. They teach that in U8 soccer. #Rapids96
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC55' - SAVE! COL's Serna tries a low shot that Ricketts dives to parry away. Jewsbury cleans up the rebound. #RCTID
- SAVE: Donovan Ricketts palms away a Serna shot
- Sean Steffen@SeanSteffenRemember when Portland used to score from corners... like, a lot? #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC51' - Valeri chips in to Adi. He softly heads it down to Nagbe but his shot is blocked. #RCTID
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC50' - Nagbe with nifty flick to Chara. Chara plays back and Nagbe in on goal but his shot deflects wide. #RCTID
- Colorado Rapids@ColoradoRapidsSecond half is underway. The #Rapids96 are 4-0-0 this season when leading at halftime.
- MISS: Darlington Nagbe slices an attempt well wide
- DCU_Exile@DCU_ExileColorado's defensive stance is great. Portland is having a tough time cracking that nut. #PORvCOL
- Luke Lohr@MLSReservesHow many people Googled Liam Ridgewell before this match? #PORvCOL
- Simon Borg@SimonBorgFanendo Adi is no Ryan Johnson. Timbers still miss RJ's power, verticality. Johnson and Rodney Wallace were major parts of 2013 #PORvCOL
- maurice hébert@liberal_maurice#PORvCOL Timbers have 60% possession and have only 3 shots on target compared to 7 for the Rapids. Not sure how to fix this.
- @CapTied96@CapTied96if they want all 3 points tonight, #Rapids96 will most likely need another goal. Timbers will lay siege in the last 10 minutes if trailing.
- Matthew Doyle@MLSAnalystTo be fair, though, my answer for everything is "4-4-2 diamond!" I'm kind of a one-trick pony. #PORvCOL
- Matthew Doyle@MLSAnalystTimbers need to come out in a 4-4-2 diamond. Drop Zak, bring Urruti or Gaston in, push Nagbe back to shuttler. #PORvCOL
- yetirich@yetirichThat was Mwanga making a soccer move at mid field. Hope you taped it cause you might not see it again #Rapids96
- 45'DDanny O'Rourke (Portland Timbers) is shown the yellow card.
- Kenner Brent@RKennerB#PORvCOL Ridgewell almost created a goal there with a long ball forward. Incredible accuracy.
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC41' - Gorgeous build up by Timbers. Valeri out to Nagbe to Harrington & back to Nagbe. His tight angle shot is wide. #RCTID
- David Dir@BigDfutbolNever have liked Alvarez's game even in college but many live him and he is skillful . This will be a very interesting addition #PORvCOL
- MLS Nerd@MLSnerdGoodness Mwanga is a tank #PORvCOL
- Matt Folger@FolgColorado don't look like they have any intention of packing it in. #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC37' - COL's Powers receives a yellow card after fouling Valeri. #RCTID
- 37'MDillon Powers (Colorado Rapids) is shown the yellow card.
- David Dir@BigDfutbolJust about to say , is Alvarez playing and he does a nice job coming inside and getting a good shot with rt #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC35' - Chara and Mwanga fight for the ball. Mwanga plays out to COL's Alvarez but his shot goes wide. #RCTID
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC31' - CHANCE! Ridgewell gets a nice header via Portland corner but ball skims high over the bar. #RCTID
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC30' - Valeri trying to work some magic. Takes back heel from Zakuani and carries forward. Loose ball in box skitters away wide. #RCTID
- Chris Bianchi@Rapids_NewsGroin strain for Brown. Got to feel for him- in prime form, awful timing. Big blow for #Rapids96.
- David Dir@BigDfutbolThe problem there wasn't moor being spun but where was the cover? #PORvCOL
- stj@stjarboeAdi should get the death stare from Will Johnson. Cappy had a tap-in if Adi raised his eyes. #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC27' - Fantastic ball chipped from Johnson to Adi on the break. He carries, hits a low hard shot. Irwin parries, rebound shot wide. #RCTID
- SAVE: Fanendo Adi has his shot on the break stoned by Clint Irwin
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC25' - Zakuani on the wing floats in a ball dangerously near the top of the six. Adi goes for it but Irwin grabs it. #RCTID
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC24' - Meanwhile, COL subs in Danny Mwanga for the injured Deshorn Brown. Rapids lead 1-0. #RCTID
- 24'FDanny MwangaF#17Deshorn Brown
- Seth@SethMan31Mastroeni needs to step up his suit game. Olsen and Heaps have him beat #Rapids96
- Matt Pollard@LWOSMattPollardValeri has to be better on that. Those were chances 2013 Portland did well on. #PORvCOL
- Colorado Rapids@ColoradoRapidsBrown is able to jog off - boos echoing around the stadium. He'll be able to continue. Now #Rapids96 to defend a dangerous set piece.
- CHANCE: Diego Valeri sends a free kick inches over the bar
- Matt Pollard@LWOSMattPollardAll of Porter's off season moves last year were gems. Players having average or below average seasons/injuries, and they're bad. #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC20' - Timbers with great possession in attacking third. Valeri heads to goal and is cut down to earn free kick. #RCTID
- David Dir@BigDfutbolAwful Marking on drew moor as POR poor starts continue at home . That goal will play right into the way COL plays on the road #PORvCOL
- Chris Bianchi@Rapids_NewsTerrific shot from Brown- good stop from Ricketts. Possession crisper, cleaner early from #Rapids96. This is good.
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC16' - GOAL. COL corner kick into the box. Ball scrambles around but COL's Hairston apparently gets it across the line. #RCTID
- Colorado Rapids@ColoradoRapidsGOAL #RAPIDS96! Crazy play off corner. Moor won header, then +/- 12 people kicked it before it crossed line. TBD on scorer... help me out!
- Matthew Doyle@MLSAnalystPowers and Brown. Blow off the SuperDraft at your own peril. #PORvCOL
- 16'0 - 1F#17GOAL: Deshorn BrownGoals this Season: 7
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC15' - SAVE! Ricketts dives to his right to deny a hard blast from Brown. #RCTID
- MLS Nerd@MLSnerdRefreshing to see a possible concussion actually taken seriously in a match. #PORvCOL
- Paul S-H@SubhedgehogHonestly, seeing Mastroeni advocating caution to his player is really good to see. #PORvCOL
- Jason Smith@jasonisasmithIf you haven't guessed, watching #PORvCOL right now where a coach is keeping a player w/ head injury from going back in. I like our league.
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC11' - Zakuani with some strength on the ball in the near corner. Fights for possession and earns a throw in for Portland. #RCTID
- greg gomez@_GregGomezDillon Powers looks like George McFly...if Marty went back and made him a jock instead of a sci fi novelist. #PORvCOL
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC8' - Zakuani cut in on the COL defense. He fires but ball hits off of Powers' head. Ref whistles and trainers out to check on him. #RCTID
- Colorado Rapids@ColoradoRapidsReferee stops play after Powers was drilled in the head with a Timbers shot. Being attended to by Ath. Trainer Jaime Rojas now. #Rapids96
- David Dir@BigDfutbolThis game will give you a good idea of Por chances this year. Colorado makeshift back line weaknesses fit POR strengths #PORvCOL
- DCU_Exile@DCU_ExileThis #PORvCOL game is pretty messy and disjointed right now. Portland needs to settle down a bit.
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC7' - COL's Klute with a couple of touches in the Timbers box. He fires on frame but right at Ricketts who makes save. #RCTID
- CHANCE: Chris Klute laces a shot right at Ricketts
- Portland Timbers@TimbersFC4' - Nagbe and Adi combine on the edge of the area. Adi lets a shot fly but it's deflected and falls easily to Iriwn. #RCTID

- Chris Bianchi@Rapids_NewsAtmosphere at #Timbers games never gets old. So awesome.
- Paul S-H@SubhedgehogI've got to say the pre-match atmosphere in my apartment sucks. It's like no one around here supports the Timbers at all. #PORvCOL
- stj@stjarboeShouldn't that Portland front line score goals for fun? #PORvCOL
