Portland Scores Goals, Yes That Is Plural Not Singular, On The Road
Aug. 16, 2012, 4:58 p.m.
Portland scores the first and only goal of the first half and then tries to absorb pressure for the rest of the game and defend. Absorbing the pressure did not work out as
produced two goals and forced Portland to try and create another goal. Not only did they create they created a beauty of a goal during the run of play and came away with the 2-2 tie.
The first half seemed like it was played in fits and starts. Usually it looked good until
tried to play the final ball or decided, in Wallace's case, to be the hero and try to either beat 2-3 defenders or hit a long shot. Toronto wasn't much better but they were helped out by quite a few defense lapses from Portland but luckily, for Portland at least, none of them led to a goal scoring opportunity.
The first real goal scoring chance went to Toronto in the 19th minute and
showed why Montreal traded him away.
