Timbers season just ran dry

Those last-minute goals were a soul-wrenching, playoff killer

The Portland Timbers had a pretty good run in 2020, for the crazy year it was. 

But, the MLS Cup playoffs ended in dramatically crummy style - a shootout loss.

It was just a minute away from a win, or even a couple inches in terms of how a ball rebounds of a post.

They worked out in favor of a scrappy FC Dallas team on a chilly, damp Sunday night.

Portland still ended up having won the mid-year MLS Challenge Cup and finished third in the Western Conference, good enough for a spot in the North America Champions League in 2021.
