It hasn't all be roses this season in Portland, far from it in fact, but it seems there will be a few consolation prizes for the Timbers as the season comes to a close.
The first, and clearly most important, was collecting the Cascadia Cup with a 1-0 victory in Vancouver over the weekend. The second is almost sure to be an AT&T Goal of the Week award for Jack Jewsbury for the outside-the-box blast that sealed the Timbers' first road win of 2012.
Could Mauro Rosales overtake Jewsbury behind and epic push from the Seattle faithful? Seems unlikely, but you never know when it comes to Cascadia.
The winner is determined by the total number of votes cast online and via text and is announced on Fridays. Here's how the voting stands as of Thursday morning:
1. Jack Jewsbury (POR) 52%
2. Mauro Rosales (SEA) 21%
3. Diego Fagundez (NE) 13%
4. Marvin Chávez (SJ) 7%
5. Boniek García (HOU) 7%
