Although El Paso Locomotive FC will be off this weekend, one of their main stars will have an opportunity to spend some time in the pacific northwest. Goalkeeper Logan Ketterer was placed on loan to the Portland Timbers FC of Major League Soccer, pending league and federation approval.

"This is a great opportunity for Logan," Head Coach and Technical Director Mark Lowry said in the official team release. "It’s something we felt we had to provide for him, particularly as we don’t play this weekend. It’s a short-term situation, one that can help Logan grow as a keeper so he can get back with us and continue to anchor one of the best back lines in the USL."

The 27-year old was selected 71st overall by the Columbus Crew SC in the 2017 MLS SuperDraft, but he did not see any MLS action in his two seasons before he came to El Paso. He has been terrific in net for Locomotive FC, including 55 appearances and 22 shutouts to help lead the club to back to back conference finals. El Paso is back in action one week from Saturday night when they host Rio Grande Valley.
