Vancouver Whitecaps v Houston Dynamo – The Story In Pictures

Vancouver Whitecaps v Houston Dynamo – The Story In Pictures

The Western Conference leaders headed to BC Place on Saturday night, but by the time the final whistle sounded, Houston Dynamo had been knocked off top spot, going down to a 2-1 defeat to Vancouver Whitecaps.

The ‘Caps made it difficult for themselves after a Fredy Montero penalty and a Yordy Reyna wonderstrike had them two goals up and coasting by half time. Romell Quioto made it interesting six minutes after the restart, but Vancouver held on fairly comfortably to claim all three points, albeit without causing too much threat of their own.

Still, a massive won as the season gets down to crunch.

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