Tumwater, WA - The Sounders U-23s handed the Portland Timbers U-23 its first league loss of the season Saturday night in a Cascadian rivalry match-up.

Husky defender Chris Brundage played a full 90 minutes for the Sounders U-23 while goalkeeper Spencer Richey also played the full 90 for the Timbers U-23 and made two saves; Richey is still tied for the most wins in the PDL.
