PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Felipe Mora scored in the opening minutes and Portland held off the Whitecaps in Vancouver’s first “home” match in Portland.
Travel restrictions forced Major League Soccer’s Canadian teams to find temporary homes in the United States for the remainder of the season. So the Whitecaps will play six more of their remaining nine games at Portland’s Providence Park.
The Timbers (7-4-3) are unbeaten in four straight, including a 1-0 victory over the rival Seattle Sounders on Wednesday night. The Whitecaps dropped to 5-9-0.
UNION 3, INTER MIAMI 0
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Anthony Fontana, Ilson Pereira and Brenden Aaronson scored, Kacper Przybylko had two assists and Philadelphia beat Inter Miami.
Andre Blake had three saves — including a diving stop in the 62nd minute. He has back-to-back shutouts and five this season. Philadelphia (8-2-4) is 4-0-1 in its last five games.
Miami (3-9-2) has lost three of its last four games.
