Ridgewell's addition improved the defense, but not much.


Since Ridgewell arrived with the team and was inserted into the starting line up, that level of organization has improved. Although the Timbers did give up three goals to the LA Galaxy three weeks ago, the team has only given up 1.4 goals per game, a marked improvement over their 1.625 mark for the season overall.
