Despite a late goal from Nicolas Mezquida, the Whitecaps were generally outfought in a entertaining battle with San Jose. The sell out crowd of 22,120 saw the visitors take an early lead through a controversial goal from Quincy Amarikwa. While the home side did generate a number of chances towards the end of the half, they went into the break on a 1-0 deficit.
The second half started with the same pace as the first and again San Jose profited with a great strike from Simon Dawkins finding the back of the net in the 60th minute.
The whitecaps largely dominated in the latter stages of the game, coming close a number of times. The late strike by Mezquida, coming 4 minutes into added time was however too little too late to earn the home team any points.
