Tacoma Defiance chops down Portland at Cheney Stadium in 3-0 rout

TACOMA, WASH. – In the club’s second match since the restart of the USL Championship season, Tacoma Defiance (1-2-1, 4 points) put on a show at home against Portland Timbers 2 (0-2-0, 0 points) with an emphatic 3-0 victory. Saturday’s match in the South Sound marked Tacoma’s first home contest inside Cheney Stadium since March 11 due to the COVID-19 shutdown. Tacoma returns to Cheney in five days’ time, with Defiance playing host to Reno 1868 FC on Thursday, July 23 (7:30 p.m. PT / ESPN+). Like today’s match, that game is being played behind closed doors.
