It was a very physical game in Vancouver's Thunderbirds Stadium as TFC II and the Whitecaps II played to a 1-1 draw. Both teams were seeking their second win of the season and personal pride was on the line. The Whitecaps seemed to want to start the game fast out of the gate and that's what they did. The trio of Caleb Clarke, Victor Blasco and Ben McKendry proved to be a daunting task for the TFC II defence.
Clarke opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a nice chip shot that went over keeper Quillan Roberts when Roberts came up in hopes to stop the Canadian starlet from getting a chance at goal. However with his side already down 1-0 in a tough rivalry game Roberts made some stellar saves to allow side to not go down any more before the half. Clearly the time spent in Wilmington last year really helped Roberts grow as a player and allow him to play in a league he is very familiar with.
After the goal, TFC II was trying desperately to tie this game before half time. In the second half, Jason Bent changed around some tactics and motivated his team to push forward and be wary of the attacking options this Whitecaps II team has. TFC II's fortunate changed in the second half when they were able to break the deadlock after a Raheem Edwards cross that was finished with a superb header from Jay Chapman.
