Aug. 12, 1975 | Portland 2-1 Seattle (ET) | NASL quarterfinals

A crowd of more than 31,000 packed into what was then called Civic Stadium for the first playoff game in series history, many of whom stormed the field after Tony Betts netted the golden-goal winner in extra time. Multiple themes can trace their roots to that...

The biggest icons to ever take part in the Seattle vs. Portland rivalry

Ahead of Seattle's clash with Portland at Providence Park, relive the top five goals from the MLS era of this rivalry.

What makes Seattle vs. Portland the best rivalry in MLS? As Matt Pentz answers that question, he looks back on the biggest icons to ever feature for the Sounders and Timbers.

Clive Charles | Portland Timbers, 1978-1981

Charles played just four seasons for the Timbers. The last one, in 1981, was cut short due to injury. He never coached the club, either, during any of its many minor-league iterations.

What makes Seattle vs. Portland Major League Soccer's best rivalry?

Ahead of Seattle's clash with Portland at Providence Park, relive the top five goals from the MLS era of this rivalry.

My favorite story of the rivalry between the Seattle Sounders and the Portland Timbers took place back when both clubs were still toiling in the minor leagues.

The setting: a Starbucks branch across from what was then called Jeld-Wen Field in downtown Portland, where Seattle coach Brian Schmetzer stopped in with his assistants a few hours before kickoff.

Now, these were the USL days, so the blue jackets the staff wore wouldn't have been as conspicuous as they are now. Still, seated in the front...

Texas derby more important than ever as attendance dips for Dallas, Houston

Houston Dynamo's first-year coach Wilmer Cabrera is no stranger to pressure as the Dynamo are tied for second in the West.
Take a look back at the top five goals from the Texas derby between the Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas.
Three rivalry games in three days means Heineken Rivalry Week is upon us once again.

Houston vs. Dallas; Dallas vs. Houston. It's a cantankerous relationship between two Texas cities that goes back as long as the line at a Luby's Cafeteria at noon on a Sunday.

Dallas has always seen itself as the more sophisticated of the two, with pristine Southern Methodist University nestled in the heart of the city, while Houston has the reputation of an outlaw, reflected by its lack of zoning laws.

The acrimony shared by these two end points on Interstate 45 filters down to sports as...
