Portland Timbers eliminated from postseason

By , Columbian Soccer, hockey and Community Sports Reporter

The Portland Timbers were eliminated from contention for the Major League Soccer playoffs on Thursday when the New York Red Bulls beat the Philadelphia Union 1-0.

The Timbers will conclude their first season in MLS on Saturday when they visit Real Salt Lake. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. The game will be televised on KPDX 49 (Comcast cable channel 13).

Had New York lost on Thursday, Portland could have made the playoffs with a win on Saturday. But the Red Bulls clinched the 10th and final spot with the win over the Union.
