Vancouver Whitecaps beat their Cascadia rivals Seattle Sounders 2-0 in Vancouver Saturday evening.

Vancouver Whitecaps looked the most assured up front early on. But the hosts weren’t able to capitalize on their pressure until the 44th minute. An Ali Ahmed cross found Pedro Vite in the box who slotted past keeper Stefan Frei, after a brief tussle with Alex Rodan

The second half continued with Whitecaps making the majority of the attacking play. In minute 58, Luis Martins down the left wing, sent a ball into Ryan Gauld, who could only hit the post for the ball to ricochete off Stefan Frei for an own-goal; despite the 2-0 scoreline, the Scotsman looked less than happy not to have been awarded the goal.

Sounders looked tired and down for the remainder of the game and appeared to have nothing to offer their fans who had made the journey up.

This win keeps the Caps in contention for the Cascadia Cup, tied on points with Portland Timbers.
