VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Giles Barnes scored twice and the Vancouver Whitecaps beat the Portland Timbers 4-1 on Sunday to eliminate the defending MLS Cup champions from the playoffs.Both of Barnes goals came in the first half at BC Place and the Timbers couldnt catch up. The Whitecaps (10-15-9) had already been eliminated from the playoffs but they claimed the Pacific Northwests Cascadia Cup on goal differential with the victory.Portland (12-14-8) finished the season without a win on the road.When I look at the overall performance, I didnt think we were good, Timbers coach Caleb Porter said. I didnt think we defended well, and I thought we had some surprisingly poor performances out of our keys guys.Barnes first goal came in the 13th minute, and he slotted his second in the 32nd. The goals were his first with Vancouver after being traded from Houston in late July.Pedro Morales scored in the 54th minute for his ninth goal of the season. He doffed his jersey in celebration following the goal and was handed a yellow card.Nicolas Mezquida followed with a goal a minute later as the Timbers playoff hopes nosedived. Diego Valeri scored on a penalty kick in the 71st minute to avoid the shutout.This performance absolutely drives me mad, Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson said. I know we have the players to do it, but we havent done it on a consistent basis. Why? I dont know. Im going to get to bottom of it because I dont want to be sitting here next year saying the same things to you like a broken record. We finished on a high today, but Im not fooled.Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted stopped what appeared to be an easy goal for Portlands Lucas Melano in the 18th minute. Melano was subbed out for the second half.The Timbers, one of four teams vying for three open playoff spots in the Western Conference at the start of the day, did not have starters Liam Ridgewell and Diego Chara for the match against the Whitecaps because of yellow card accumulation.There has to be some long, hard discussions and reflexion on what went wrong, Porter said. Its a combination of things, but for me there were holes in the team all year long.The Cascadia Cup goes to the winner of the three-way competition between the Whitecaps, Timbers and Seattle Sounders. The award was created by supporters of the three teams back in 2004. Seattle claimed the Cascadia Cup last season and fans from the Emerald City Supporters brought the trophy to BC Place.I cant fault any of my players today, Robinson said. I thought we played with an energy and an enthusiasm and a will and a desire, but we havent done that too many times this year, which is why we are where we are.The Timbers were eliminated from the CONCACAF Champions League on Wednesday night when they played to a 1-1 draw with Costa Ricas Deportivo Saprissa at Portlands Providence Park.It was the final match for Timbers midfielder Jack Jewsbury, who has played for 14 MLS seasons with his final six in Portland. Traveling fans at BC Place canted Captain Jack! in his honor after the game.Its been unbelievable, Jewsbury said after Sundays match. I never knew what I was getting into when I came to this team in 2011. Joel Embiid Jersey .S.

The agreement would need to be approved by the Board of Supervisors and the Oakland City Council before the groups could move forward.Schaaf is scheduled to present the deal to the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday in a closed-door session.
