The Portland Timbers managed to seal a place in the Western Conference Final after beating Cascadia rivals Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0 in the second leg of their conference semifinal clash on Sunday night.
The two rivals entered the game off the back of their 0-0 draw in Portland in the first leg with everything at stake on Sunday. But it was Portland who shone through thanks to goals from Fanendo Adi and Diego Chara.
Vancouver’s chances were hampered when Kekuta Manneh was taken off injured in the first half but they will be disappointed by the loss, especially as it came in front of their own fans.
Portland will now face FC Dallas in the Western Conference final over two legs starting on November 22.
