2019 Canadian Championship — Qualifying Round 3
Vancouver Whitecaps FC vs. Cavalry FC
BC Place — Vancouver
July 24 —10:30 PM ET
It's all to play for when the Vancouver Whitecaps host Cavalry FC in the second leg of the third qualifying round of the Canadian Championship Wednesday at BC Place.
The teams played to a 0-0 draw in the opening leg July 10 at Spruce Meadows in Calgary. Maxime Crepeau was forced into a critical late save to deny Jose Escalante's left-footed shot from 25 yards out. Andy Rose and Doneil Henry both had quality chances for the visitors, but they failed to put their headed shots on frame.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC
The Whitecaps lost their fifth straight game in league play and extended a winless run to eight games with a 3-1 defeat to the San Jose Earthquakes Saturday night at BC Place.
It was a bright start for the 'Caps with Henry opening the scoring in the 7th minute. But the Quakes responded with three unanswered goals, with Vako and Chris Wondolowski scoring before halftime and Magnus Eriksson adding a 79th-minute insurance goal.
While the Whitecaps are in the midst of their worst league form of the season, Cavalry FC are perfect after three matches of the Canadian Premier League's fall season. On Sunday at Spruce Meadow, they defeated York9 FC, 1-0, with an own goal by Daniel Gogarty in the 10th minute all the hosts needed.
- This is the second meeting between Cavalry FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps in the Canadian Championship with the teams playing to a 0-0 draw July 10.
