PORTLAND, Ore. — Major League Soccer's Portland Timbers and the Portland Thorns of the National Women's Soccer League joined forces to play a charity match Wednesday night to benefit relief efforts in Ukraine. The two teams raised at least $500,000 from the game, dubbed PTFC For Peace, which go to UNICEF. The teams played two 30-minute halves, and by the end, all the players from both teams — including Timbers coach Giovanni Savarese and all the goalkeepers — were on the field scrambling to score.
