Vancouver Whitecaps v New England Revolution – The Story In Pictures

Vancouver Whitecaps v New England Revolution – The Story In Pictures

It was a disappointing return to MLS action for Vancouver Whitecaps after a three week break. They weren’t as flat as they have been in previous season after time off, but their inability to finish the multitude of chances that were created hurt them badly and New England Revolution ran out 2-1 winners.

A Nicolas Mezquida free kick was the high point of the afternoon, but it was unfortunately sandwiched inbetween a London Woodberry header and Kelyn Rowe’s winning strike.

AFTN photographer Tom Ewasiuk was there to capture all the action before, during and after the game and here’s his “Story In Pictures”, with a full Flickr slideshow at the end.

But ten minutes into the second half, Kelyn Rowe is allowed time and space to drill home a low shot past David Ousted for 2-1 and what was to prove to be the game winning goal
