No Wynne for the Rapids.

Full game, as Rapids (7th) cause an upset with a 1-0 win.

Timbers 3rd. That's 3rd on the pro rata system operating. They actually have more points than both Seattle and SKC above them, but since they have played 2 games more, their table position is adjusted to 3rd, as the Covid interrupted regular season comes to an end. Final regular season games next Monday.

In a bizarre VAR decision Tuiloma gets away with a clear hand ball in the box, early on.

1-1 after NT/ET. First heartbreak for Portland was conceding Dallas's goal at 93 mins, when they must have already had thoughts on the Conference semis.

Back to the bench (unused sub) as Timbers draw 1st home leg CONCACAF Champions QF verus América (2nd currently Liga MX) 1-1.

Portland had 7 Latinos of their own, in their starting lineup, plus 3 more came off the bench. On field English speaking at a minimum. Spanish may have overtaken French as Billy T's 2nd language.

Unfortunately Timbers lose 3-1 to América, at The Azteca. Lot less intimidating without fans, but Portland are out of the CONCACAF Champions League. Losing 4-2 on aggregate.

Full game Tuiloma (no 25). América's 3rd goal comes via a small Billy T deflection. Plus  with his leap he just falls to intercept the cross, that leads to the Mexican's opening headed goal. The pen given for América's 2nd goal, very questionable.

Some may remember Tuiloma scoring with a cracking volley a few seasons ago for Portland.
https://www.mlssoccer.com/news/portland-timbers-center-back-bill-tuiloma-scores-incredible-volley

Plenty of drama in the 2nd half of this Pacific North West derby. Valeri with a costly double pen miss (original retaken) for Portland, against last year's MLS champs. Great stadium Timbers have. They are 2nd last in the West (one ahead of Minnesota), but now they are out on the CONCACAF CL and it's midweek games, can now concentrate solely on the MLS.

No MLS games for either Billy T, Collier or M Boxall for nearly 3 weeks now.

Would have been nice to have got them over to Europe for a week long AWs/Oly Whites type camp. But not to be. Will be trickier with the FIFA windows (Sept-Oct-Nov) later this year.

According to the football app I have he was Portland’s best defender. With his extended starting run he might be hitting straps at the right time to jump ahead of the queue and be that third overage Olympic player come Friday

Full game & a yellow, as Portland (stay 7th on GD in the West), get touched up 4-1 in Austin (up to 9th).

Apparently Austin have a brand new purpose built 20,500 seater stadium. This may have been their first MLS game at full capacity? Looks pretty cool anyway.

I know getting 2-3 min each game isn't great, but it shows the coach has some faith in him and considers him to be just outside of the starting XI. 
Surely if he stays fit he  be getting more chances with the starting strikers getting booked, injured, fatigued etc

Did you mean Elliot Collier? Because Tuiloma gets quite a few starts when he’s fit, according to Transfermarkt he’s at about 67% starting XI for this season.
