PHOTOS: Exclusive images from Seattle’s 2-1 win over Portland on Sunday

Seattle Sounders managed to beat Cascadia rivals Portland Timbers 2-1 on Sunday night in a key Western Conference clash at CenturyLink Field, despite being outplayed for large parts of the game.

The Timbers wasted several opportunities and will be kicking themselves for leaving Seattle with nothing as they now sit just two points clear of the Sounders with seven regular season games to play.

An early Obafemi Martins goal settled Seattle supporters’ nerves before Brad Evans doubled their lead against the run of play from the penalty spot.

The Timbers rallied to score early in the second-half through Jack Jewsbury but couldn’t find that elusive equaliser as Seattle beat them for the second time at CenturyLink Field this season.
