The tide turned in the second half, with the Whitecaps scoring twice. After VAR took away a first penalty call, Vancouver was awarded one in the 64th minute, which Lucas Cavallini converted — yet another preseason goal for the club's top offseason acquisition.
The match seemed settled for a draw, but substitute Montero scored from a tight angle just before the final whistle, ending Vancouver's preseason on a high note.
