6/28/2010: Crew First Rounder Bright Dike Finding Form With Timbers, 4 Goals In 2 Games

If you thought being cut as a first rounder from the Columbus Crew would be a death keel for Bright Dike, think again. The striker is now starting for the Portland Timbers and combining with fellow Crew forward George Josten for goals. Bright registered his first goal with the Timbers in a 1-0 win over the FC Tampa Bay Rowdies and Dike could find his way back to MLS as a starting striker for the Timbers when Portland joins MLS in 2011.

Dike's good form started the previous Tuesday with a hat trick in a 4-1 win over the PDL Kitsap Pumas in the U.S. Open Cup. Four goals in two games has to make Crew fans wonder if Dike would've been the better option over Herrera as another striker option for the Crew? Dike will look to continue his form this Wednesday as the Timbers face off against rivals the Seattle Sounders in the U.S. Open Cup.

Highlights of Dike's goals (Dike also was robbed twice by the post against the Rowdies):
