The 65th Annual White Rock Sea Festival Is Back Bigger & Better Than Ever
A Vancouver Whitecaps FC (6W-4L-9D) side mixing in a group of fresh faces after playing their second match in four days held Real Salt Lake (7W-4L-8D) to a 1-1 draw Saturday on a hot and humid evening at Rio Tinto Stadium.
Jamaican striker Darren Mattocks scored in his second straight match to give Vancouver a 1-0 lead in the 73rd minute, but Joao Plata equalized late to secure the draw in a heated Western Conference encounter that saw seven players booked.
It was an impressive road performance from the Blue and White, who had a total of six new faces in their starting lineup after a midweek draw with Toronto FC.
After their 41-5 in over Montreal on the weekend the Lions hope to take that momentum into Friday's game at BC Place against Winnipeg.
Joke Of The Day
A man and his wife entered the dentist's office.
"I want a tooth pulled," the woman said. "We are in a big hurry, so let us not fool around with gas or Novocain or any of that stuff."
"You are a very brave woman," remarked the dentist. "Which tooth is it?"
"Show him your bad tooth, honey," said the lady to her husband.
I think I passed this dog driving down Johnston Road the other day. We really are going to the dogs, when dogs can drive a car.
