Epic rivalry match on the way?

One quick look at the U.S. Open bracket tells us the Sounders FC is one match away from playing Northwest rival Portland in the third round.

Oooooooooooo, that would be fun, wouldn't it?

Here are the potential game details -- looks like Seattle will host if Portland's lower-league opponent (Sonoma County Sol) wins and the Timbers will host if they advance.

June 30: Sonoma County Sol (USASA-Calif.) at Seattle Sounders (MLS), Starfire Sports Complex, Tukwila, Wash., 7 p.m.

June 30: Seattle Sounders (MLS) at Portland Timbers (USL1), PGE Park Portland, Ore., 7 p.m.
