Timbers fell to the Minnesota Stars last night 1-0. Alas, I was not in attendance as I am on the road for my sister's wedding but I gather there was a red card for the home team, many many fouls, a great penalty kick stop from Steve Cronin, and, in the end, a team who is now winless in the last eight league matches.
If this season is one long try out for next year's MLS team, then when do the wins start happening?
While I don't have the full recap, our crack new Timbers photographer Alex McDougall was there. Check out his images from the match.
