VANCOUVER, B.C. — Jack Jewsbury scored from 25 yards in the 39th minute and the Portland Timbers beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 Sunday, winning the three-team Cascadia Cup competition.

If Portland hadn't won the Major League Soccer match, Sounders FC would have retained the Cascadia Cup.

Portland finished 3-1-2 against its regional rivals, Sounders FC went 2-1-3 and Vancouver was 0-3-3.

The Timbers (8-16-9) won on the road for the first time this year. Four teams in MLS history have gone winless in away matches in a season.

Vancouver (11-13-9) would have clinched a playoff berth in front of its home crowd at BC Place with a victory.

Later in the day, the Whitecaps made the playoffs when FC Dallas lost 3-1 to the Sounders in Seattle. Vancouver is the first Canadian team to qualify for the MLS playoffs.
