Vancouver Whitecaps v Seattle Sounders – The Playoff Bore In Pictures

Talk about polar opposites. That’s been Vancouver Whitecaps two playoff matches so far this season. The exciting, free flowing football of Wednesday was replaced by the cagey, shot shy soccer of Sunday.

Two clean sheets though for the ‘Caps, and importantly no away goals given up in a match that couldn’t have lived up less to expectations but that keeps Vancouver very much in with a shot of advancing.

There were few thrills in the 0-0 draw, but 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. Some great shots of supporters in this week’s collection.

The March to the Match kicked things off in some style, sadly the action on the pitch wasn’t up to the same standards

Uh oh, someone’s told Robbo about our Bingo card

Chances were few and far between. This one sailed over Christian Bolanos’ head

Then Brek Shea had a chance from a tight angle but couldn’t get a shot on target

A meeting of the minds

Finally a shot on target! The only one of the game, as Chad Marshall shoots straight at Stefan Marinovic

Robbo’s not the happiest with Nouhou, seen here in his rare upright stance

Curva Collective try to fire up the crowd – hands up if you want to see the ‘Caps have a shot on target

“Dig a hole….”

Rare excitement – a stramash!

And that was all she wrote. The added six minutes just making it feel even longer. Ah well, on to Thursday and the Clink
