¡Es Insano! Timbers Advance In MLS Playoffs After Breaking Physics In PKs

Portland Timbers are moving on in the MLS playoffs after defeating Sporting Kansas City in a wild match that required eleven rounds of penalties—with the winner being scored by, and then saved by, Timbers keeper Adam Kwarasey.

But that’s not before a would-be winner by SKC’s Saad Abdul-Salaam managed to ricochet off both posts and somehow avoid the goal in one of the más insano things we’ve seen in soccer in a long time. Timbers move on to play Vancouver in the second round.
