Portland Timbers 2, Fire 2: Man of the Match

New, 1 comment

A de-powered Fire squad managed to scrounge a point in Portland and stay atop the Supporters’ Shield race

MLS: Chicago Fire at Portland Timbers Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

A tough game tonight in Portland, but ultimately one the Fire can be proud of. It was always going to be tough playing this game on the road while missing key players, but the Fire hung in there and managed to get a point. We’re going to give our MOTM nod to Arturo Alvarez for his ridiculous first half goal from distance— he didn’t get the initial credit for it, but the league’s numbers people eventually gave him his due.

Now let us know how you saw it. Vote for your choice for MOTM in the poll below. The poll will be open for two days, after which we’ll publicize the results. (Note: if you’re viewing this post from AMP or Apple News, you won’t see the poll below. Feel free to tell us your pick in the comments.)
