Timbers vs. Sounders: Highlights, stats and quotes

Relive the biggest blowout in Cascadia Cup history.

During the entire 45+-year history of the Sounders-Timbers rivalry, we’ve never seen a performance quite like Sunday’s 6-2 win. The Sounders set all sorts of records, including most goals ever scored by one team in this rivalry, most goals the Timbers had ever allowed at Providence Park and the largest margin of victory. The Sounders have reason to feel good after this one.
