As a third choice keeper, Gleeson did exceptionally well for himself tonight. Let in two goals that were not entirely in his fault, however, bright days are ahead of him.
Another player with a physical showing that was solid all the way until being substituted. Received a yellow card for his harsh tackle.
Purdy showed great vision with his passing aspect of the game and, like Wallace, he knew exactly at what times to attack up the wing.
Big man “Futty” kept the backline well organized and knew when to attack and when to defend. Well-orchestrated performance.
That own goal may haunt Brunner but he did well on set plays and was well available throughout the match.
Alhassan was one of those players for the Timbers that was involved in almost every play. Gave out three shots and played a pivotal role in the attacking third of the field.
Captain Jewsbury kept the Timbers organized all night long but didn’t have the best of performances. Had awkward touches but mostly due to the field conditions.
A very physical showing from Marcelin. Gave it all on the field along with two shots testing Sean Johnson.
The Colombian earned himself a headline night with two big goals and one of them making history as the first ever Timbers home goal in MLS play. Brilliant performance coming from him.
What a night for Wallace. Got one in the back of the net for the first time since 2009 and ran up the wings like none other. Brilliant stuff coming from him.
The hero that fell short for the Timbers. His early disallowed goal was followed by many more unlucky finishes in front of the goal. Leaving empty-handed, Cooper put in a heck of a performance.
Letting in four goals is never good especially when it comes out to nine goals in four appearances. Sean John will have reasons to be mad at his defense but he himself had a couple shaky moments as well.
Fans will appreciate the effort from him but much of his tackles were reckless and unnecessary. Gibbs earned himself a yellow card and a rough bruising on his forehead.
Sega was pretty good in bringing the ball up and more importantly calming the play. He did that well with Marco Pappa but his performance was still not assuring of a higher ranking.
Was a bit hectic as right back. Cleared out many balls unnecessarily and opened up much space for Timbers’ attack.
Dasan was unseen for most of the match and again, like Anibaba, left plenty room open for Kenny Cooper & Co. Defense definitely needs to tighten up.

Logan struggled to handle the constant ongoing pressure in the midfield. Reckless challenges and hectic play best describe his performance on the night.
Chaves was constantly trying to make something out of nothing. You could see he gave his all. Pulled off five shots and was by far Chicago’s most active player on the pitch.
Pappa made sure his availability was frequent and handled the pitch conditions very well. His technical footwork on the ball helped him well but it takes ten more players to win a match.
Speedy player but on the night he was unable to cope with the pitch conditions. Nyarko’s speed and technical skills do not go hand in hand. Speed was there, however, control was not.
Not exactly Puerari’s night as he found it hard to connect with his partner up front. Got zero shots out of him and found it hard to break out at the Portland defense.
