VANCOUVER, BC – Despite a flurry of chances, Vancouver Whitecaps FC (2W-2L-2D) recorded a 1-1 draw against Real Salt Lake (2W-3L-2D) at BC Place on Saturday.
Referee: Drew Fischer Attendance: 19,612 Scoring Summary: 66' - RSL - Olmes Garcia 84' - VAN - Camilo Sanvezzo (penalty kick)
Whitecaps FC 1 - 1 Real Salt LakeAn impressive finish from Real Salt Lake substitute Olmes Garcia opened the scoring before Whitecaps FC leveled the match with a penalty from Camilo in the final ten minutes There was one change to the starting lineup from last match in San Jose as Camilo replaced Erik Hurtado. Real Salt Lake came on strong in the second half and carved out a chance on 61 minutes as Javier Morales made space in the box before cutting back to Olmes Garcia. The substitute’s first time effort was struck straight at Cannon. The ball rebounded back to Morales but the referee called for offside to let Vancouver off the hook. Whitecaps FC didn’t heed the warning as five minutes later RSL opened the scoring. Garcia found himself with space on the edge of the box and bent a fine effort into the far corner and past Cannon. Vancouver looked to respond and almost did on 75 minutes as Ned Grabavoy brought down Lee for a free kick on the right flank. Although Teibert’s first delivery was punched out by Rimando, the second delivery into the box found Alain Rochat open at the back post but the defender’s first time strike went narrowly wide. The deserved equalizer did come on 84 minutes as RSL defender Nat Borchers handled the ball in the area after slipping under pressure from substitute Darren Mattocks. Camilo stepped up to take the penalty and sent Rimando the wrong way to level the scores with less than 10 minutes to go.
