Whitecaps score three first-half goals to dump Dallas 3-1

By The Associated Press on March 16, 2024.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) – Brian White had a goal and an assist, and the Vancouver Whitecaps scored three goals in the first half and beat Dallas 3-1 on Saturday night.

Vancouver (2-0-1) has won two straight Major League Soccer games, while Dallas (1-3-0) has lost three in a row.

The Whitecaps opened the scoring in the 25th minute when Mathías Laborda tapped a right-footed shot to the bottom left corner of the net. White assisted on the goal and then scored on a header about four minutes later.

Sebastian Lletget’s header-goal in the 40th minute pulled Dallas within 2-1. About two minutes later, Ryan Raposo played a cross to Fafá Picault, who headed the ball in front of the six-yard box and it bounced past diving goalkeeper Maarten Paes from just inside the left post to make it 3-1.

Yohei Takaoka made two saves for Vancouver.

The unbeaten Whitecaps will host Salt Lake next Saturday at BC Place Stadium.
