Timbers go down fighting at Doc Harris Stadium
Young soccer players cheer on local U-23 team in Camas
Tuesday, July 2, 2013
Several youth soccer players took a break from their Clash at the Border tournament to cheer for the Portland Timbers U-23 team Friday night, at Doc Harris Stadium.
Jose Ribas got the Timbers on the board with a goal in the 73rd minute of the game. Zack Foxhoven delivered a bicycle kicking goal that seemed to freeze time in the final ticks of regulation. The Timbers almost tied the game during stoppage time, but Washington Crossfire held on for a 3-2 victory.
"It was too little, too late. We should have been attacking like that the whole game," Foxhoven said. "I hope these kids saw how hard we played at the end. A game is not over until it's over. There's always a chance to come back. I hope they can learn from our mistakes, and see how important it is to be aggressive from the very beginning."
