Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ Fredy Montero scored two goals and Osvaldo Alonso added another on a penalty kick to give the Seattle Sounders FC a 3-2 victory over the Portland Timbers on Sunday in the second match between the two Major League Soccer rivals. The teams played to a 1-1 draw at Qwest Field back in May when they met in the season's first game of the so-called Cascadia Cup rivalry. The Sounders (9-4-8) are undefeated in eight straight matches. They were coming off a scoreless draw against the Los Angeles Galaxy last Monday. The Timbers (5-9-3) are winless in seven straight games. After a scoreless first half, Portland went ahead early in the second on an own goal and added another from Jorge Perlaza.
