PORTLAND TIMBERS vs HOUSTON DYNAMO JELD-WEN FIELD, Portland, Ore. 7:30 p.m. PT (ROOT-NW; KHOU/FSH+/Azt)

Oct. 14, 2011 (WEEK 31; MLS Game 290)

A massive game in the chase for places in the MLS Cup Playoffs is ahead at Jeld-Wen Field on Friday night when the Portland Timbers play host to the Houston Dynamo. The teams are separated by just three points in the MLS overall table – with the Dynamo holding the final wild card berth ahead of the Timbers, who have a game in hand. The Timbers are coming off a 1-0 win at Vancouver two weeks ago, while the Dynamo haven’t lost in four after a 1-1 home draw with Chicago in their last action. REFEREE: Baldomero Toledo. SAR (bench): Frank Anderson; JAR (opposite): Ian Anderson; 4th: Alejandro Mariscal MLS Career: 123 games; FC/gm: 24.8; Y/gm: 3.6; R: 47; pens: 47 INJURY REPORT: PORTLAND TIMBERS – OUT: GK Adin Brown (concussion); DF Kevin Goldthwaite (L knee ACL rupture); FW Eddie Johnson (concussion); FW Spencer Thompson (R knee); PROBABLE: DF David Horst (L groin strain); GK Troy Perkins (R hip soreness); FW Jorge Perlaza (lower back soreness) … HOUSTON DYNAMO – OUT: FW Cam Weaver (R hip) INTERNATIONAL ABSENCES: none SUSPENDED: none WARNINGS: SUSPENDED NEXT YELLOW CARD: POR: Mike Chabala, Diego Chara, James Marcelin, Rodney Wallace … HOU: Brad Davis, Adam Moffat SUSPENDED AFTER TWO YELLOW CARDS: POR: Kalif Alhassan, Jack Jewsbury … HOU: Bobby Boswell, Danny Cruz, Hunter Freeman, Je-Vaughn Watson, Cam Weaver HEAD-TO-HEAD ALL-TIME (1 meeting): Timbers 0 wins, 1 goal … Dynamo 1 win, 2 goals … Ties 0  In the clubs’ first meeting, Adam Moffat and Brian Ching scored first-half goals as the Dynamo took a 2-1 victory, Aug. 14 at Robertson Stadium.  Coaches record: Dominic Kinnear v POR: P1 W1 L0 T0 … John Spencer vs. HOU: P1 W0 L1 T0 LAST MEETING (MLS): 8/14: HOU 2, POR 1 (Moffat 17; Ching 27 – Jewsbury 56)  The Dynamo took the lead after 17 minutes. A Bobby Boswell shot off a corner was blocked and deflected out some 40 yards from goal -- where Adam Moffat hit a thunderous strike that beat Portland goalkeeper Troy Perkins into the upper right corner.  Houston then doubled their lead in the 27th minute, when Brad Davis slipped in Colin Clark, who nutmegged a defender for Brian Ching to finish from close range.  The Timbers pulled a goal back in the 56th minute when Sal Zizzo found Darlington Nagbe with a cross at the back post, and he headed back for Jack Jewsbury, whose thumping volley took a deflection on its way to the back of the net.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall - Hunter Freeman, Andre Hainault, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe - Colin Clark (Je-Vaughn Watson 69), Adam Moffat, Geoff Cameron, Brad Davis (Jermaine Taylor 80) - Brian Ching, Carlo Costly (Cam Weaver 56).  PORTLAND TIMBERS (4-1-3-2): Troy Perkins - Mike Chabala, David Horst, Eric Brunner, Rodney Wallace Diego Chara - Sal Zizzo (Kalif Alhassan 46), Jack Jewsbury, Darlington Nagbe (Brian Umony 60) - Kenny Cooper (Bright Dike 66), Jorge Perlaza. PORTLAND TIMBERS The Portland Timbers ended a quick two-game winless run, taking a 1-0 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps FC in the inaugural MLS game at BC Place on Oct. 2. The Timbers have 40 points from 31 games, in sixth place in the Western Conference. LAST MATCH  The game's lone goal and the first goal at BC Place came in the 25th minute. Diego Chara picked off an errant ball and countered quickly, crossing to a wide-open Kenny Cooper at the edge of the area. He controlled the ball and lashed a skipping shot past Joe Cannon and into the right corner.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


Timbers coach John Spencer made three changes to the team that fell to a 2-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena. Sal Zizzo, James Marcelin and Jorge Perlaza came back into the side, in place of Eric Alexander and the suspended Jack Jewsbury and Kalif Alhassan.  PORTLAND TIMBERS (4-1-3-2): Troy Perkins - Lovel Palmer, Mamadou Danso, Eric Brunner, Mike Chabala Diego Chara - Sal Zizzo, James Marcelin, Darlington Nagbe - Jorge Perlaza (Eric Alexander 66), Kenny Cooper (Bright Dike 85). TEAM NEWS  The teams come into the game separated by just three points in the wild card race, with the Dynamo holding onto the final spot ahead of 11th place Portland, but the Timbers still with a game in hand.  “I think there’s going to be pressure on this week leading up the Houston game no matter what,” Jewsbury said. “We feel like we definitely have to take care of our home game here and get three points and then go on the road against two tough teams in two tough places to play in D.C. and Salt Lake and get results there to really put pressure on other teams going into the final games.”  The win in Vancouver was the second of the season on the road for the Timbers, moving their away record to 2-9-4. After the Jeld-Wen Field regular season finale against Houston, Portland concludes the campaign with games at D.C. United and at Real Salt Lake.  “I think that was one of our best performances on the road this season. I’ve just tried to keep the guys focused on what we have to do,” Timbers head coach John Spencer said. “If we can go and win two or three of our next couple games, we have a good chance to make the playoffs, if not, we won’t get there. The table doesn’t lie at the end of the year. We deserve to be where we are. We haven’t walked through 30 weeks of the year, we have quality.”  Kenny Cooper has scored three goals in the last four games, now tied for the Timbers team lead with seven league goals on the campaign. Four have come since Aug. 6; he went from April 30 to that date without hitting the back of the net.  “My hope is with each week to get better and with not many games left in the season, I hope I can put in a better performance each time,” Cooper said. “It feels good to get a goal. It’s one of the best moments out there in the game. I’ve been on the right end of some really great service, so I have to credit my teammates.”  Troy Perkins recorded his ninth shutout of the season in Vancouver, a career-high. He had eight in a season twice previously, in back-to-back years with D.C. United (2006-07).  Jorge Perlaza made his first starting appearance since Sept. 10. Perlaza had started every league game this season before missing the Sept. 16 match against New England due to illness; he’d come off the substitutes’ bench in each of the last two games.  After making his first start since coming to the Timbers from FC Dallas in the New York match, Eric Alexander came off the bench vs. Vancouver, his first back-to-back games with Portland.  “The guys have had a good stretch, and it’s tough to break into that lineup this late,” Alexander said. “I’m just glad I’m able to come off the bench and help out where I can and just do what they need me to do.” Said Spencer: “He’s a good soccer player. We’ll probably see the best of Eric next year. He came from a good club that passes the ball well. He’s got lovely technique and good movement, and I expect him to be here for a long time.”  The Timbers had five players called in for international duty: defenders Futty Danso (Gambia) and Steve Purdy (El Salvador), midfielders Diego Chara (Colombia) and James Marcelin (Haiti) and forward Brian Umony (Uganda). HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo stretched their undefeated streak to four games in a 1-1 draw with the Chicago Fire on Oct. 1 at Robertson Stadium. The Dynamo have 43 points from 32 games on the season, now in a tie for fourth place in the Eastern Conference to start the week. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo opened the scoring on 33 minutes. A Brad Davis corner kick to the near post deflected off a Chicago defender in a scrum, and the ball fell to Colin Clark, who swept it into the goal from close range.  But the visitors were level 10 minutes later. Dominic Oduro won a foot race with Houston's Bobby Boswell to a through ball sent behind by Baggio Husidic, and Oduro flicked the ball with the outside of his right foot past goalkeeper Tally Hall inside the far post.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made two changes to the team that took a 1-0 win over FC Dallas at Pizza Hut Park. Colin Clark came back into the midfield for Danny Cruz, and Carlo Costly started up top for Calen Carr.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-1-3-2): Tally Hall - Andre Hainault, Geoff Cameron, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe (Jermaine Taylor 46) - Adam Moffat - Colin Clark (Danny Cruz 75), Luiz Camargo, Brad Davis - Brian Ching, Carlo Costly (Calen Carr 60).

MLS GAME INFORMATION


TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo saw their four-game winning streak at Robertson Stadium put to an end, though they still have not lost on their home ground in league play since mid-June.  “We put ourselves in some great spots in the final third, and it was one of those days where our crosses were off enough, our shots were off enough, and it led to a bit of a frustrating afternoon,” said Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear.  Said goalkeeper Tally Hall: “It feels like a loss. I don't know how many opportunities we had. It just always felt like it was coming, it was coming, it was coming … To not get it, it doesn't hurt, but it doesn't feel good."  The Dynamo come into their final two games knowing victories – in Portland and at home against the LA Galaxy – will guarantee them a place in the MLS Cup Playoffs.  “I think our playoffs start (in Portland) in an amazing atmosphere on the road. I think we’re going to see what our team is made of,” said Brad Davis. “Then we have a game with LA where we don’t know what’s going to happen ... but that really doesn’t matter, because we need to get maximum points out of these games to put ourselves in a good spot.”  The Dynamo also head back out on the road after their first away win of the season, at FC Dallas on Sept. 24.  “We are where we are, and we have the chance to get six points and get into the playoffs,” Davis said. “Some of these training sessions over the past few days have been some of the most intense that we’ve had since I’ve been around. I’d rather know it’s in our hands and that we have that chance.”  The Dynamo had three players away on international duty during the fixture break – Carlo Costly with Honduras, and Jermaine Taylor and Je-Vaughn Watson with Jamaica (those countries faced each other on Tuesday). Fullback André Hainault turned down a call from Canada for World Cup qualifiers against St. Lucia and Puerto Rico.  "We knew it would come down to the last two games. It is always going to be tough when the things are tight,” said Hainault. “We just need to be strong, be ready for it and take care of ourselves. We have a weekend off, so we need to lick our wounds, figure some things out and come ready for Portland."  After scoring his first goal since April 29 in a substitute appearance vs. San Jose on Sept. 17, also missing six games to a knee injury, rookie Will Bruin has not figured in the last two games.  “He’s looking good in practice, and I think that goal against San Jose gave him a lot of confidence, both in the game and on the practice field,” Kinnear said. “It’s unfortunate we didn’t get him on the field (vs. Chicago), but his attitude was great, and he stepped on the field with the reserves and banged in two goals in the first half.”

HEAD COACH JOHN SPENCER After a standout 18-year professional playing career, Glasgow, Scotland, native John Spencer served as an assistant coach for the Houston Dynamo under head coach Dominic Kinnear for nearly five seasons (2006-2010). He helped lead the Dynamo to back-to-back MLS Cup championships in 2006 and 2007 and four consecutive playoff appearances. From 2006-08, Spencer also coached the Dynamo Reserves, guiding the Dynamo Reserves to the 2008 MLS Reserve Division championship. On Aug. 10, 2010, Spencer was named the first head coach in MLS Timbers history, and on April 14 of this season, Spencer earned his first win as an MLS head coach as the Timbers poured in four goals in a 4-2 win over the Chicago Fire. As a player, Spencer played for such noted English clubs as Chelsea, Everton and Queens Park Rangers, and Scotland’s Glasgow Rangers. In MLS, Spencer starred for the Colorado Rapids from 2001-04, becoming the only player to be the team’s MVP and scoring leader in the same season more than once. Spencer, 40, began his professional playing career in 1987 with Rangers. As a striker, he played for several top-flight clubs over 14 seasons in Scotland and England, most notably amassing 43 goals with English-power Chelsea (1992-96). Spencer joined MLS and the Rapids in 2001 and was considered the team’s undeniable leader due to his skill and work ethic. During his time with Colorado, he played in 88 games and his 37 goals ranks among franchise career leaders. Spencer set the club’s single-season mark for goals (14) and career mark for assists (17), was a two-time MLS Best XI selection (2001, 2003) and was a finalist for the league’s MVP award in 2003. The two-time MLS All-Star (2001, 2003) captained the Rapids to three straight playoff appearances from 2002-04. Spencer etched his name into Rapids history on Aug. 30, 2009, when he was inducted to the Rapids Gallery of Honor. During his playing career, Spencer earned 14 caps with the Scotland National Team from 1994-97. He earned his first cap for Scotland against Russia on November 16, 1994, in Glasgow. His favorite soccer memories include playing for Scotland against England at Wembley Stadium in the 1996 European Championship. He last appeared for Scotland on May 27, 1997, in a friendly against Wales. TIMBERS MATCH AT D.C. UNITED RESCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 19 DUE TO HURRICANE IRENE The Timbers' match against D.C. United, originally scheduled for Aug. 27, has been rescheduled to 5 p.m. (PT) on Wednesday, Oct. 19 at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. due to the weather impact of Hurricane Irene along the East Coast. The rescheduled match will be televised live on ROOT SPORTS with live radio broadcasts on 750 AM The Game and in Spanish on La Pantera 940 AM. The change means the Timbers will play three games in nine days to close out the 2011 MLS Regular Season schedule including ending the year with consecutive road games at D.C. (Oct. 19) and Real Salt Lake on Oct. 22. FIVE TIMBERS CALLED UP FOR INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION DURING FIFA DATES Defender Futty Danso scored his first international goal for The Gambia on Oct. 8 during a 2012 African Cup of Nations 1-1 qualifying draw Burkina Faso. Danso scored on a header in the 59th minute. For El Salvador, defender Steve Purdy scored his first international goal on a header in the 12th minute of a 4-0 win over the Cayman Islands in a 2014 World Cup qualifying match on Oct. 11. Forward Brian Umony started and played 90 minutes on Oct. 8 as Uganda played to a 0-0 draw with Kenya in a 2012 African Cup of Nations qualifier. The draw, combined with Angola's win, means Uganda failed to qualify for the tournament. Midfielder James Marcelin played the first half of Haiti's 7-0 win over the U.S. Virgin Islands on Oct. 7 and played the second half of a 2-2 draw with Curaçao on Oct. 11 in 2014 World Cup qualifying games. Designated player Diego Chara entered as a 69th minute substitute for Colombia on Oct. 11 in a 2-1 win over Bolivia in 2014 World Cup qualifying.

HOUSTON DYNAMO AT PORTLAND TIMBERS FRIDAY, OCT. 14, 2011 COOPER SCORES AGAIN, TIMBERS EARN SECOND ROAD VICTORY Timbers forward Kenny Cooper scored on a deft volley from the left side of the penalty box to help Portland earn a 1-0 win against Vancouver on Oct. 2 in front of 21,000 fans at newly-renovated BC Place. The win was just the second away from home for the Timbers this season and marked their fourth win in seven matches since Aug. 20. Midfielder Diego Chara found Cooper with a pin-point pass across the field during a counterattack in the 25th minute. Cooper chested the ball down and volleyed to the far corner of the goal for the lead. The win keeps the team entrenched in the playoff hunt just three points out of the 10th and final spot to the postseason. The Timbers had to shuffle their lineup with Jack Jewsbury serving a league-imposed, one-game ban for caution accumulation and midfielder Kalif Alhassan was suspended for his red card against New York on Sept. 24. James Marcelin made his first start since Aug. 6 at San Jose. Goalkeeper Troy Perkins set a new career high with his ninth shutout of the season and Cooper has scored a goal in three of the Timbers' last four games.

JACK OF ALL TRADES Midfielder Jack Jewsbury set a new career high with eight assists on Aug. 20 and currently sits eighth in MLS in assists. Jewsbury also ranks 12th in the league with 22 points, as of Oct. 12. Jewsbury is the only player in MLS this season with multiple points streaks of at least four games. Jewsbury had a career-high-tying five-game points streak from April 30-May 29, which is tied for the second-longest in the league in 2011.

LAST TIME OUT AGAINST THE DYNAMO On Aug. 14, former Timbers midfielder Adam Moffat scored on a long-distance shot and Brian Ching added a second goal in the opening 30 minutes as Houston earned a 2-1 win over Portland in front of 14,475 fans at Robertson Stadium. Moffat beat goalkeeper Troy Perkins with a hard shot from distance in the 17th minute. Ching scored 10 minutes later off assists from Brad Davis and Colin Clark. Timbers defenders Lovel Palmer and Mike Chabala made their first appearances against their old team following the July 21 trade that sent Moffat the other way.

PLAYOFFS IN THE INAUGURAL SEASON If the Timbers can qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs, they would be the fifth MLS expansion team to accomplish the feat. The Chicago Fire and Miami Fusion both reached the playoffs in their inaugural seasons in 1998. The 2006 Houston Dynamo clinched a spot and the 2009 Seattle Sounders FC are the latest expansion team to earn a berth to the playoffs.

PUSH FOR THE PLAYOFFS As of Oct. 12, Portland is on the outside of the MLS Cup Playoffs picture. Houston holds the 10th and final playoff spot with 43 points. The Timbers, D.C. United and Chicago are all fighting with New York and Houston for the final two playoff spots. Prior to Wednesday's MLS games, just three points separated the No. 7-10 playoff spots. Only three teams have clinched a spot in the playoffs as 10 other teams will go down to the final two weeks of the season trying to qualify for the postseason. FAIR PLAY Timbers defender Futty Danso's six fouls this season ranks as the least by any defender with more than 1,500 minutes played. New York's Tim Ream is second on the list with nine fouls. Danso has committed fouls in just four of his 21 appearances as of Oct. 14. A PLACE TO CALL HOME After spending the first three weeks of their inaugural MLS campaign on the road, the final stages of renovation work at JELD-WEN Field were completed in time for the Timbers to debut their impressively refurbished home on a national stage. The Timbers, in front of sold-out crowds of 18,627, scored seven goals on their way to opening up the stadium with a pair of wins over the Chicago Fire and FC Dallas in mid-April. JELD-WEN Field underwent a $40 million renovation that transformed the already iconic downtown Portland venue into one of the most unique and intimate soccer venues in North America. JELD-WEN Field improvements include the addition of an entirely new eastside seating section that will house the new KeyBank Club and premium club seats, the Widmer Brothers Southern Front deck behind the south goal that will provide unique vantage points ideal for casual group seating, a new, state-ofthe-art video board that features the latest in high-definition technology for an enhanced fan experience and a new FieldTurf playing surface well-suited for the variety of sporting and community events that will be featured each year at JELD-WEN Field. Phase I of construction, which included foundation work for the new eastside seats, began in early 2010, while renovation on a larger scale began on Sept. 7, 2010, as demolition commenced following the Division-2 Timbers’ home schedule. JELD-WEN Field, located in the heart of the city, was originally constructed in 1926 and has undergone a number of transformations over the years, none more substantial than the current renovation. The stadium has housed some of the most memorable events in its 85-year life, including presidential visits, an Elvis Presley performance in 1957, Pele’s last official game as a professional and the 2003 Women’s World Cup. It was home to the NASL Timbers from 1975-82 and most recently served as the home grounds for the USL Timbers from 2001-10.

HOME COOKING The Timbers are tied for first in MLS with 30 home goals in 16 games. Portland has scored three or more goals on five occasions at JELD-WEN Field and has been blanked just once at home. JELD-WEN Field has thus far proven to be the league's second-highest scoring venue, averaging a combined 3.13 goals per game (50 total goals). RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., is the highest (3.50 goals).

CLIMBING THE CHARTS The Timbers currently rank tied for fourth on the overall list of wins by an MLS expansion team. Portland's 11 wins sees it placed even with the 2006 Houston Dynamo (11 wins) and one behind the 2009 Seattle Sounders FC (12 wins) on the chart. The 1998 Chicago Fire lead the list with 20 wins, including a 13-3 home record, with the 1998 Miami Fusion (15 wins) ranking second. GOAL-SCORING DIVERSITY Goals have come from a number of different positions on the field this season for the Timbers. Of the team's 38 goals scored as of Oct. 14, 42 percent (16 goals) have been scored by the forward position. Showcasing the team's depth and attacking skill at all areas, midfielders have accounted for 26 percent (10) of goals, while defenders are almost level with 24 percent (9). Own goals have accounted for 8 percent (3) of the total. PERKINS EARNS NEW CAREER RECORD IN SHUTOUTS Timbers goalkeeper Troy Perkins earned a new career high of nine shutouts following a 1-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Oct. 2. With three matches remaming, Perkins can still extend the career mark. In 2006, Perkins started all 30 games for D.C. United, earning an overall record of 15-6-9 with eight shutouts. The following season, Perkins matched the mark in 29 matches. COOPER HAS POTENTIAL TO REACH MLS MILESTONE BY SEASON'S END The only player to appear in every league match for the Timbers this season, Kenny Cooper is just 188 minutes away from reaching the milestone of 10,000 minutes played in his MLS career. The veteran striker is in his fifth MLS season after returning from 1 1/2 years with German 2.Bundesliga side TSV 1860 Munich. With 270 possible minutes remaining (three games), Cooper needs to average 63 minutes per game to surpass the 10,000 minute mark by the end of the season. To date, Cooper has averaged 75.4 minutes per game in 31 matches (26 starts). FIRST ONE'S THE CHARM The Timbers are 11-1-3 when scoring first and 0-12-3 when allowing the first goal of a match. In a 2-1 win over Whitecaps FC on Aug. 20, Portland conceded a goal and won for the first time since recording its first two victories in high-scoring affairs back in April. SCOUTING THE DYNAMO Dominic Kinnear's side is currently on a four-game unbeaten streak and most recently tied Chicago 1-1 on Oct. 1. On the back of play-making midfielder Brad Davis and his 14 assists, the Dynamo are in the thick of the playoff hunt. Houston will be without forward Cam Weaver, who played 34 minutes against the Timbers on Aug. 14, after he underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum. Rookie forward Will Bruin has scored five goals for the Dynamo and goalkeeper Tally Hall has played every minute this season.


HOUSTON DYNAMO AT PORTLAND TIMBERS FRIDAY, OCT. 14, 2011 2011 MLS CUP PLAYOFF UPDATE With just two weeks left in the regular season, 10 MLS clubs – including the Timbers – are vying for seven spots in the MLS Cup playoffs; just 10 points separate all 10 sides in the standings. By virtue of Seattle Sounders FC’s loss over the weekend, the LA Galaxy secured the 2011 Supporters’ Shield, which is awarded to the club with the best overall record during the regular season. In addition to the Galaxy, both Seattle and Real Salt Lake are the only clubs to have clinched postseason berths. With only a handful of matches remaining, there are three more clubs that can lock up their postseason fate this week. FC Dallas, Sporting Kansas City and the Philadelphia Union can all join the playoff mix with a win this week. The Chicago Fire is in danger of being eliminated from postseason contention if the right combinations of results fall into place this week. TIMBERS SUPPORT MLS W.O.R.K.S. AND SOCCER KICKS CANCER CAMPAIGN On Friday, the Timbers and MLS W.O.R.K.S. are working together in support of the league’s breast cancer awareness campaign as part of the Soccer Kicks Cancer initiative, focused on raising awareness and funds for cancer research and treatment and providing strength and hope in the fight against cancer affecting men, women and children.

Timbers goalkeeper Troy Perkins is will wear a pink kit with pink gloves, while other players and referees will wear a special pink MLS W.O.R.K.S. ribbon patch on their jerseys. Players will also wear pink adidas sweat bands and pink shoe laces. Select game-worn autographed jerseys and the special-edition pink match balls from across the league will be available for auction at www.MLSsoccer.com/works as part of MLS’s effort to raise funds for breast cancer research and treatment. TIMBERS TO EXPAND SEATING CAPACITY FOR TONIGHT'S GAME The Timbers announced that they will expand the seating capacity at JELD-WEN Field for their remaining regular-season MLS game in 2011. The team will open up seats in reserved sections 209-211 as well as approximately 1,200 seats in Timbers Army sections 201-208. The additional seats will raise the stadium’s capacity to 20,323 for the regular-season home finale against the Houston Dynamo on Oct. 14. The Timbers set a franchise record for attendance on Sept. 16 against New England with 20,323 fans in attendance. In their inaugural MLS season, the Timbers have sold out each of their first 16 league matches at JELD-WEN Field at a capacity of 18,627. TIMBERS AWARDED LEED® GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATION The Portland Timbers announced that JELD-WEN Field has been awarded LEED® Silver Certification established by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). LEED is the preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high-performance green buildings. JELD-WEN Field’s sustainability efforts include a number of initiatives, including the use of energy-efficient lighting and low-flow plumbing fixtures; recycling stations and food-waste composting programs for staff and visitors; subsidized mass transit programs and availability of bicycle racks for fans; and utilizing reusable commodities, using green-certified materials and equipment.

TIMBERS' HOME SELLOUT STREAK HITS 16 CONSECUTIVE MATCHES The Timbers saw their 16th consecutive sellout for a league match at JELD-WEN Field on Sept. 21, as Portland and the San Jose Earthquakes played to a 1-1 draw. The Timbers have sold out each of their league matches at home and have drawn close to 300,000 fans at JELD-WEN Field this season. Portland plays its regular-season home finale on Friday, Oct. 14, against the Houston Dynamo.

Houston Dynamo at Portland Timbers Friday, 14 October 2011 – 9:30 p.m. CT MLS regular season JELD-WEN Field, Portland OR Broadcast Information TV: KHOU 11.2, FS Houston Plus Radio: SportsTalk 790, La Ranchera 850

Dynamo Media Contacts (@HoustonDynamo.com) Lester Gretsch (lgretsch@ 832-633-0632) Jonathan Yardley (jyardley@ 713-876-4500) Jonathan Kaplan (jkaplan@ 516-965-4664)

DYNAMO AT PORTLAND The Dynamo make their first trip to JELD-WEN Field to take on former Houston assistant coach John Spencer and the expansion Portland Timbers, who remain in playoff contention. The Dynamo won the teams’ first meeting on August 14 by a 2-1 score, including a long-range goal from former Timber Adam Moffat. The Timbers’ lineup typically includes former Dynamo players Mike Chabala and Lovel Palmer.

DYNAMO NOTES 

Since a 3-0 loss at Chivas USA on July 23, the Dynamo have been one of the top teams in MLS, posting a 5-2-4 record in their last 11 games to push into playoff position with two games remaining. That stretch includes a 5-1 record against Western Conference teams; Houston is 7-5-4 on the season against its former conference.

Houston has scored in the final 11 minutes to win or tie a game on 10 separate occasions this season, including six times in the Dynamo’s last 10 games.

Brazilian midfielder Luiz Camargo has started the last four MLS games for the Dynamo, and the team has posted a 2-0-2 record in those contests. The insertion of Camargo has allowed Geoff Cameron to shift to center back and has, for the last three games, pushed Andre Hainault to right back. The Dynamo have allowed just two goals from open play in four games with Camargo in midfield.

Although Jamaicans Jermaine Taylor and Je-Vaughn Watson face short turnarounds from Tuesday’s international friendly against Honduras, two other Dynamo players – Canadian defender Andre Hainault and Honduran forward Carlo Costly – will be more rested for Friday’s game. Hainault declined a call-up for Canada’s World Cup qualifier on Tuesday and was subsequently omitted from Canada’s roster for both of its games. Costly played for Honduras against the United States on Oct. 8 but returned to Houston in time for Monday’s training session.

Houston has scored first in 12 out of 32 games on the season; the Dynamo are 7-1-4 when notching the first goal and 3-8-7 when the opponent scores first; there have been two 0-0 ties. Houston’s 10 results when allowing the first goal are the most in MLS; the Dynamo’s winning percentage when allowing the first goal (.361) ranks third.

Forward Cam Weaver, who scored four goals in the first 13 games of the season, had surgery on Oct. 5 to repair a torn labrum in his hip and will miss the rest of the season. Weaver had been playing through the injury


SPREADING THE WEALTH The Dynamo have gotten goals from 15 different players in 2011 out of a total of 25 field players who have taken the field in an MLS game. Houston has six players with at least four goals, including co-scoring leaders Geoff Cameron, Brian Ching, and Will Bruin with five goals each and Bobby Boswell, Brad Davis, and Cam Weaver with four goals apiece.

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER The Dynamo have scored 22 of their 40 goals (55%) in the final 15 minutes of a half, portions of the game that combine to make up 30 percent of a match. Houston has scored 14 goals in the final 15 minutes of games, most in MLS.

RE-WRITING THE RECORD BOOKS Brad Davis is playing his way to the top of the Dynamo record books. Davis is the all-time club leader in games played in all competitions (195) and MLS (157); games started in all competitions (177) and MLS (143); minutes played in MLS (12,208); and assists in all competitions (69) and MLS (60). Davis also ranks second in team history in minutes played in all competitions and third in goals in all competitions (22) and MLS goals (20).

ALWAYS THERE Goalkeeper Tally Hall is the only Houston player to contest all 2,880 minutes of the MLS regular season so far. Hall and midfielder Brad Davis are the only players to start each MLS game.

UP NEXT: ROBERTSON FINALE VS. LA The Dynamo will play their final regular season home game at Robertson Stadium a week from Sunday, hosting Supporters’ Shield winners LA Galaxy in the final game of the MLS season. Houston has not beaten the Galaxy since 2008, but the Dynamo will likely need a win or a tie to qualify for the postseason.

NEW BLOOD Of the Dynamo’s 26 players on the roster, 14 are new to the orange in 2011. Houston acquired three players via draft (Kofi Sarkodie, Will Bruin, Evan Newton), four via trade (Colin Clark, Jason Garey, Calen Carr, Adam Moffat), five via international signings (Hunter Freeman, Jermaine Taylor, Je-Vaughn Watson, Carlo Costly, Luiz Camargo), and two via the Dynamo Academy (Alex Dixon, Josue Soto).

LOCAL FLAVOR Almost one-third of the Dynamo’s current roster has close ties to Texas. Six players are native Texans (Bobby Boswell, Tyler Deric, Alex Dixon, Hunter Freeman, Francisco Navas Cobo, Josue Soto), Colin Clark attended SMU in Dallas, and Jason Garey (Gonzales, La.) has a sister, Melissa, who was a standout player at Texas A&M University in College Station.
