Portland Timbers Advance Through MLS Playoffs in Epic Shootout Vs. Kansas City
With no World Series game being played and the NFL serving up a stinker last night, northwest sports fans hopefully found the MLS playoff game broadcast on ROOT Sports last night.
They should be sorry if they didn't.
In an unprecedented finish, the Portland Timbers advanced in the Western Conference playoffs with a stunning 11 round penalty kick tiebreaking victory over Sporting KC.
Great saves by both goaltenders (KC actually had their backup goalkeeper minding the net) as well as head-scratching misses and physics-defying failures before it came down to the goalies facing off in the 11th - ELEVENTH! - round of PK's.
Watch for yourself in case you missed this epic finish to a soccer match on ANY pitch ANYWHERE!
