NWSB Editor and Vancouver Whitecaps writer C-Mac brings us his report card for the Whitecaps FC during the first half of the MLS season. Goal of the year? Eric Hassli’s stunning volley to tie Toronto FC in the first leg of the Voyageurs Cup finals in the Canadian Championships was a spectacular indicator of the French forward’s ability. Best win? The 3-1 spanking of a talented Houston Dynamo side by Vancouver.

NWSB Editor and Portland Timbers writer Chris Anderson brings us his report card for the Portland Timbers during the first half of the MLS season. Despite winning their first game of the season over the Philadelphia Union 3-1, the Timbers would only scratch out two more victories in between their opener and June 17, leaving them in last place and wondering where so much promise for a young and talented team went. MVP for Portland so far is Scotsman Kris Boyd.

While the injuries have been a problem, Seattle is lucky to be sitting in fourth place in the Western Conference. Top goal goes to Patrick Ianni for his mid air volley against Sporting KC. Best player so far is Osvaldo Alonso, without him, the Sounders would be in a world of hurt.
