Timbers U-23 forward Mark Sherrod has made a remarkable start to the 2012 Timbers U23 season, with five goals in his first two league matches.  After two goals in the 3-0 season opening victory over Fraser Valley last week, Sherrod had a hat trick on Saturday night after Eric Miller had the opening goal, and the Timbers U-23’s had a comfortable 4-1 win over the Victoria Highlanders.

After Miller scored the opener in the 2nd minute, Sherrod would score on either side of halftime before Victoria pulled one back in the 64th minute.  But Sherrod would complete his hat trick in the 71st minute.

Andrew Ribiero would have two assists on the night, with Cam Vickers getting an assist on the final Sherrod goal.
