The Portland Timbers went up against one of the better clubs in Europe on Wednesday night in Dutch Champion AFC Ajax.  And despite the 2-0 loss, the Timbers played toe-to-toe with their guests, and arguably had as many quality scoring chances, but it was Ajax with the only scores of the night as early and late goals would be the only tallies in a 2-0 win for the visitors.
