Portland, RCTID Thiago entertain as eMLS League Series Two comes to a close in Rose City

PORTLAND, Ore. – Playing in front of his hometown crowd, Portland Timbers eMLS competitor Edgar "RCTID Thiago" Guerrero was nine minutes away from being eliminated in the eMLS League Two Series, presented by Coca-Cola and PlayStation, quarterfinals Saturday at Pure Space. But as the saying goes, it's not over till it's over.

After 80 minutes of scoreless soccer, the quarterfinal match exploded into life when Enrique "BITW7" Espinoza (representing Chicago Fire) took lead with a Lionel Messi goal in the 81st minute. But despite conceding late, Guerrero was not worried.

After giving up the late goal, Guerrero roared back when Eusébio delivered the tying goal just five minute later.
