A Loss, But a Beautiful First Night

July 19, 2013

Lane United dropped its inaugural friendly 3-0 against the tough Portland Timbers U-23 team. But the crowd and support were fantastic. As Lane United Coach Gabriel Hernandez told KEZI, “Anyone that looks at this crowd and says that this can’t happen here I think is crazy … There’s a lot of love for the game here.”

We want to thank the awesome Peter Bellerby of Northwest Sports Pics who shot photos of the game and kindly shared them with us. Here:
