Vancouver Whitecaps v Seattle Sounders – The Story In Pictures

Vancouver Whitecaps v Seattle Sounders – The Story In Pictures

Some stories are sometimes best left untold. Vancouver Whitecaps 2-0 home loss to Seattle Sounders yesterday is probably one of those stories, but we’ve got some good photos from the match, so it would be a shame to let those go to waste!

A first half brace from Chad Barrett did the damage, as the Sounders comfortably held on for all three points and the Whitecaps were left to go “back to the drawing board” and try to regroup. With seven of their next eight matches on the road, they’re going to have to do that pretty quick.

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.
