PORTLAND, OR — May 1st, 2013 — The Green Machine soccer team defeated MLS side Portland Timbers yesterday with star player Atticus Lane-Dupre scoring four goals to send the crowd of more than 3,000 into a frenzy.

Eight year-old Atticus was the man of the match with an incredible performance in front of a packed crowd at the JELD-WEN Field. The match was played on a beautiful sunny Wednesday afternoon against a Timbers team that included star players Jack Jewsbury, Darlington Nagbe, Mikael Silvestre, and Will Johnson.

In his post-match interview, Atticus was asked what his favorite moment of the game was. “The one where I nutmegged Will Johnson,” he said.

Keeping with tradition, Timber Joey rewarded Atticus with a slice off the victory log for his four-goal performance and victory.

Congratulations to The Green Machine for their brilliant performance. And kudos to Atticus Lane-Dupre for his exceptional performance and brave display.
