whitecaps vs real salt lake

BC Place – April 27 2018

Images from the Whitecaps 2-0 win over Real Salt Lake at BC Place.  A largely forgettable match up until the point that the Whitecaps were awarded a penalty, which Christian Techera converted.  However in taking his shirt off during the celebration he incurred a second yellow card and was dismissed from the game.

Somehow this seemed to spur both sides into action. Within a few minutes of coming onto the field Alphonso Davies made a beautiful run down the left wing, avoiding a couple of challenges, and shot the ball in on goal, which Anthony Blondell put home, to give Vancouver the win.
