VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC vs HOUSTON DYNAMO BC PLACE, Vancouver, B.C. June 10, 2012 (WEEK 14, MLS Game #122) 4 p.m. PT (SNET Pac; FS-Hou) The only league encounter in Week 14 of the MLS season will take place in British Columbia, as Vancouver Whitecaps FC play host to the Houston Dynamo at BC Place. Whitecaps FC are coming off back-to-back road draws in the Cascadia Cup, again netting a late goal for a 1-1 tie in Portland two weeks ago. The Dynamo are coming off a victory in a rematch of MLS Cup 2011, a 2-1 defeat of the LA Galaxy that maintained their unbeaten home league record. REFEREE: Ramon Hernandez.

Whitecaps FC are in a tie for fourth place in the Western Conference with 18 points from 11 games. LAST MATCH  The game had an extended delay during halftime after a thunderstorm moved over the stadium with about 10 minutes left in the first half.  Both goals then came after the break. In the 67th minute, a cross from fullback Jack Jewsbury was punched out by Whitecaps FC goalkeeper Joe Cannon. But Kris Boyd was right there, and with his back to goal hooked the ball past Cannon from close range for the opener.  Vancouver leveled the score in the 84th minute when second-half substitute Darren Mattocks chested down Eric Hassli's header in the box, took a pair of touches to get past a defender and fired a right-footed blast past a diving Troy Perkins.  Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie made two changes to the team that reached a 2-2 draw with Seattle Sounders FC at BC Place. Camilo and John Thorrington came into the team, in place of Darren Mattocks and Omar Salgado.  VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC (4-3-3): Joe Cannon – Lee Young-Pyo, Jay DeMerit, Martin Bonjour, Alain Rochat – Gershon Koffie (Eric Hassli 72), Jun Marques Davidson, John Thorrington – Camilo (Darren Mattocks 83), Sebastien Le Toux, Davide Chiumiento. TEAM NEWS  For the second time in four matches, Whitecaps FC scored a goal in the final 10 minutes to rescue points. They have scored four goals in the final quarter-hour this season; those two have led directly to four additional points in the standings.

“I think in a number of occasions we fought to the end of games. I don’t think there was ever a moment of doubt by that. We talked about the fact that Portland loses a lot of goals in the final 15 minutes of games. Because of that, I think it stuck in our minds,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie. “We just kept going and I don’t think there’s a lot of games you can question the quality of play by these guys. Today they showed it again, they showed the desire right to the end.” Whitecaps FC have now gone winless over their last five games in all competitions, the draw in Portland following a loss in the second leg of the Canadian Championship to Toronto FC. The club’s last win came May 9 vs. FC Edmonton. “Coming off the disappointment of Wednesday, we showed the right response that we needed, and hopefully we will have our moment to move forward,” said midfielder John Thorrington. “We’ve had a lot of tired legs and a lot of minutes. To go down 1-0 in a place like this and to come back really speaks to the character of the guys in the locker room.” After conceding six goals in the previous two matches, Whitecaps FC restored some defensive stability in Portland, though they have still gone seven matches over all competitions without a clean sheet. “For us, it’s about being consistent – consistently doing well and consistently winning games,” Rennie said. “When we’ve had our first choice back four playing, we’ve only lost three goals in MLS, so we want to keep our back four together as much as we can because that’s a fantastic record.” Thorrington made his first start in a league game since April 18, having come on as a second-half substitute in three of the previous five games. He had started all four games in the Canadian Championship. “I think his performance made him the man of the match tonight. He was one of the guys I noticed was most disappointed with what happened Wednesday,” said Rennie. “He was one of the guys that got everyone together, and I think his performance really gave us that spark. When he plays at that kind of level you saw (against Portland), it shows he is going to be that great of a player for us.” Darren Mattocks scored his first MLS goal, making his third consecutive appearance after missing three months following burns suffered in a household accident. Mattocks had scored his first professional goal in a Canadian Championship match vs. Edmonton. “It’s really nice seeing his confidence grow. The one thing about him is he always makes chances for himself. If he can keep playing and taking those chances, then we have a really special player on our hands,” said Rennie. Following their last league match, Whitecaps FC have taken some well-deserved time off. “We’ve played a ton of games in a short period of time, and traveling to the east coast three times within that span can really tire you out,” Rennie said.

HOUSTON DYNAMO The Houston Dynamo extended their undefeated streak to four games and remained undefeated in league play in their new home, defeating the LA Galaxy 2-1 in a rematch of MLS Cup 2011 in their last match, May 26 at BBVA Compass Stadium. The Dynamo are in a tie for sixth place in the Eastern Conference with 16 points from 11 games. LAST MATCH  The Galaxy took an early lead. Edson Buddle, David Beckham and Chad Barrett carved up the Dynamo defense with three excellent passes, and the ball ended up at the feet of Buddle, who exploited space between Bobby Boswell and Andre Hainault to slot home a smooth right-to-left finish in the 10th minute.  The Dynamo drew level thanks to some good fortune. Brian Ching's shot crashed off the crossbar but unfortunately for Mike Magee and the Galaxy, his attempt to bring the ball down resulted in a rebound into an empty net.  The Dynamo then scored the match-winner in the 57th minute, when Andre Hainault headed home an inswinging corner from Brad Davis into the bottom corner.  Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear made one change to the team that reached a late 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium. Andre Hainault came in for Geoff Cameron, away on international duty.  HOUSTON DYNAMO (4-4-2): Tally Hall – Andre Hainault, Jermaine Taylor, Bobby Boswell, Corey Ashe – Calen Carr (Colin Clark 75), Adam Moffat, Je-Vaughn Watson, Brad Davis (Luiz Camargo 84) – Will Bruin, Brian Ching (Macoumba Kandji 72). TEAM NEWS  The Dynamo conceded their first goal in league play in their new home, but still remained undefeated there with a second victory (to go with a draw) in three matches.  Brad Davis, who led MLS with 16 assists a season ago, recorded his second assist of the season on the match-winner. Both assists have come in the last two games.  “You don’t like to go back that far, but I don’t think we tested their defense from wide areas on crosses,” Dominic Kinnear said. “Having Brad there is a benefit when you have a dead-ball situation and when you have aggressive guys attacking the ball.”

The game-winning goal was the third from a corner kick this season for the Dynamo, tied with D.C. United and San Jose for most in MLS. They tied for the league lead (with Real Salt Lake) with nine goals from corners a season ago. “It’s very important and it’s been the culture of this team,” Davis said. “We’re starting to understand each other and I like the way we play. Getting the ball wide, getting it in the box and I think we did a good job of that.” But they have just one goal from a cross from open play this season, after scoring 11 via that route a year ago. “We have a young team. Last year, we didn’t move the ball as well as we are this year,” Davis said. “I think the maturity of this group shows. There are a lot of young guys here, but we are starting to understand each other and get into a groove. Once we got the lead (against LA), we were composed. We settled down, moved the ball and made them chase the game.” The Dynamo were without linchpin Geoff Cameron for the first time this season, as he was with the U.S. national team in advance of the start of World Cup qualifying. André Hainault – ahead of his own departure for international duty with Canada – started for just the second time in five games and scored his second goal of the season. “The team is deep enough that we can move players in and out. Geoff is a big player for us but he is out and we have to fill the gaps,” said goalkeeper Tally Hall. “I think we did an awesome job with the guys on the field. There was no different mentality going out there. We just needed to go out and get three points.” The Wednesday following the league match, the Dynamo had their U.S. Open Cup run ended at the first hurdle, losing 1-0 to the NASL’s San Antonio Scorpions in a third-round tie. The game’s lone goal came on a penalty kick converted by San Antonio’s Hans Denissen in the 51st minute. Here’s the Dynamo team: Tyler Deric; Warren Creavalle, Bobby Boswell (Josue Soto 75), Nathan Sturgis, Oscar Recio; Alex Dixon, Luiz Camargo, Adam Moffat (Brian Ownby 62), Colin Clark, Macoumba Kandji (Colin Rolfe 62), Cam Weaver The Dynamo also lost for the first time in their new ground, a 2-1 loss to Valencia CF of Spain in the BBVA Compass Dynamo Charities Cup. Aritz Aduriz scored twice for Valencia, answered by a goal from Houston’s Calen Carr, as all three goals came in the opening 17 minutes. “These games, most of the time, we say will test the depth of the squad, but now the depth is being taken away,” Kinnear said. “The guys have to be really ready and the standards can’t drop because you want the team to win.”

ABOUT WHITECAPS FC In 1974, Vancouver Whitecaps FC played their inaugural season in the North American Soccer League, and in 1979, the club won the NASL Soccer Bowl championship. Following the demise of the NASL in 1984, Vancouver 86ers were founded in 1986 and from 1987 to 1992 the club won four Canadian Soccer League titles. In 1993, Vancouver joined the North American second division after the disbandment of the CSL. In 2001, the club reverted back to the Whitecaps and the following season added FC to their official name while creating a full club model that encompasses professional teams for men and women, extensive youth development and grassroots participation programs, facility development, and the Whitecaps Foundation to support specific initiatives related to health and wellness through soccer. Since 2004, Whitecaps FC have won two United Soccer Leagues First Division championships and two USL W-League championships. Whitecaps FC were the 17th club admitted to Major League Soccer on March 18, 2009, and on March 10, 2011, Vancouver kicked off their inaugural year in MLS at Empire Field before moving into the new BC Place Stadium in downtown Vancouver. Vancouver finished the 2011 season with a record of 6W-18L-10D. 2012 is Vancouverʼs 37th season of professional soccer, and 26th consecutive season. Whitecaps FC are the longest running pro soccer club in United States and Canadian history.

VANCOUVER WHITECAPS FC VS. HOUSTON DYNAMO – MEDIA NOTES

MATCH NOTES As a member of the MLS Eastern Conference, todayʼs visit of Houston to Bell Pitch at BC Place will be the lone regular season meeting between Whitecaps FC and the Dynamo. Since 2007, Houston have never won an MLS match on Canadian soil (0W-3L-3D). Todayʼs match is the third meeting between Vancouver and Houston, with Whitecaps FC splitting their first two MLS encounters with the Dynamo last season. On Apr. 10, 2011, the 'Caps suffered a 3-1 defeat at Houstonʼs Robertson Stadium. First-half goals from Cam Weaver and Bobby Boswell set Houston on their way to victory, despite #37 Camilo Sanvezzo replying before halftime for Vancouver. Will Bruin sealed all three points for the Dynamo with a late second-half strike. Whitecaps FC Date 2011.04.10 2011.08.27

avenged that defeat at Empire Field on Aug. 27, 2011, as a late strike from Shea Salinas gave Vancouver a 1-0 home win. The only other time Whitecaps FC faced a team from 'Space City' was during the old North American Soccer League days when the 'Caps lost 1-0 at home to Houston Hurricane on June 2, 1979. Todayʼs match will also be the 50th time that Whitecaps FC play a club from the state of Texas since 1974. At home, Vancouver have dominated clubs from The Lone Star State with an all-time record of 21W-2L-2D for an overall record of 29W-16L-4D all-time.

WHITECAPS FC NOTES Whitecaps FC are looking to end a three-match winless streak in MLS, and a five-match winless run in all competitions, this afternoon. Through a third of the season played, Vancouver are in fifth place in the MLS Western Conference standings with a record of 5W-3L-4D. They are also in seventh spot in the latest MLS Power Rankings. Vancouverʼs last MLS encounter came in Portland, Oregon, on May 26, where Whitecaps FC earned a 1-1 draw with Cascadia Cup rivals Portland Timbers at JELDWEN Field. Though Designated Player Kris Boyd gave Portland the lead midway through the second half, #22 Darren Mattocks secured a valuable road point for the Blue and White with his first career MLS goal in the late stages. As a result, Whitecaps FC have opened their 2012 Cascadia Cup campaign with draws against Portland and Seattle Sounders FC on May 19. #37 Camilo Sanvezzo has enjoyed scoring against MLS clubs from Texas. The Brazilian struck Vancouverʼs consolation goal in last seasonʼs 3-1 defeat in Houston on Apr. 10, 2011, before scoring the match winner in this seasonʼs 1-0 home win over FC Dallas on Apr. 21, 2012. Whitecaps FC have had eight different goalscorers in MLS this season. At the same stage last year, Vancouver had seven different players find the scoresheet in the league. Vancouver have one of the most global squads in all of MLS, with 17 total countries represented among the 29 roster players. Comparably, almost 70 per cent of the Houston roster is made up of players from the United States.

Centre back #2 Michael Boxall will miss todayʼs match, as he is on international duty. Boxall is helping his native New Zealand defend their Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) Nations Cup title and advance to the next stage of 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying in the Solomon Islands. Boxall will be available for selection during Whitecaps FCʼs home match versus Colorado Rapids on Saturday, June 16. Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie has a near full squad of players to choose from. The ʻCaps were further boosted by the return to full training of goalkeeper #24 Brian Sylvestre this week. The United States youth international has endured a lengthy recovery from knee surgery last year. Striker #9 Atiba Harris is on the sidelines until the summer after undergoing a successful operation to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee on May 25. Meanwhile, United States youth international striker #17 Omar Salgado will be out of action for most of the summer. After coming on as a first half sub in the United States U-20 friendly matches versus Uruguay on June 6, the El Paso, Texas, native suffered a right foot fracture late in the second half. Whitecaps FCʼs second Designated Player - midfielder Barry Robson - will be joining the club around June 27, having just completed the 2011-12 season with English League Championship side Middlesbrough FC.

Seattle would win the match 2-1. Le Toux would score his first MLS playoff goal, which was also the first ever MLS playoff goal for Philadelphia Union, in 2-1 loss to Houston Dynamo during the first leg of the 2011 Eastern Conference semifinals. Houston would go on to win the series 3-1 on aggregate. #23 Long Tan has an American stepfather, David Wells, who is a resident of Houston, Texas. #3 Calen Carr and #11 John Thorrington were teammates for five seasons at Chicago Fire from 2006 to 2010. #32 Bobby Boswell played under Whitecaps FC's director of soccer operations Tom Soehn while he was assistant coach at D.C.

First Comeback Win: The Dynamo recorded a 2‐1 win on May 26 over the LA Galaxy for their first come‐from‐behind win  of the season. Prior to Saturday the Dynamo were 0‐3‐1 on the season when allowing the first goal of the game. 

Western Expansion: After Saturday’s 2‐1 win over the Galaxy the Dynamo are now 3‐1‐1 against the Western Conference  this season, with wins against Chivas USA, the San Jose Earthquakes and the Galaxy. Houston is 1‐2‐3 vs. the Eastern  Conference, but five of those six games were played on the road.  


Second Half Savants: The Dynamo are now 3‐0‐4 in games in which they were tied at halftime and 1‐0 when leading at  halftime. They are a perfect 4‐0‐4 when they are tied or leading at the break. Houston is 0‐3 when trailing at the interval.  

Hainault’s game‐winners: Defender Andre Hainault’s 57th‐minute winner vs. the Galaxy was his second game‐winning  goal of the season. Hainault buried a shot from 12 yards in the second minute of stoppage time on opening day, a 1‐0 win at  Chivas USA on March 11, for his first game‐winner this season.  

Daytime Dominance: With the May 26 matinee win over the Galaxy, Houston improved to 4‐0 in day games this season,  with wins over Chivas USA, San Jose, D.C. United and the Galaxy. The Dynamo are 0‐3‐4 at night, but six of the seven night  games have been on the road. Houston has three more day games this season (6/10 at Vancouver, 7/28 at Toronto FC and  9/30 at Philadelphia).    

Cameron’s streak ends: Geoff Cameron missed the May 26 game with the Galaxy while playing for the U.S. in its 5‐1 win  over Scotland. It was the first MLS game that Cameron had missed since May 4, 2011 vs. Colorado. Prior to Saturday,  Cameron had started and played full time in 40 consecutive matches (playoffs included), the most‐ever among Houston  field players. Cameron played 3,576 consecutive minutes in MLS play (playoffs included) before his latest absence.  Goalkeeper Tally Hall leads all players with 45 consecutive MLS starts. Brad Davis’ streak of 45 consecutive starts was  broken at Chicago on April 15 due to a calf strain.  

BBVA Compass Stadium opener: The Dynamo opened the 13th soccer‐specific stadium in Major League Soccer on May 12.  On a gorgeous, 82‐degree day in front of a sell‐out crowd of 22,039, the Dynamo honored past legends, including Wade  Barrett, Pat Onstad, Eddie Robinson and Craig Waibel in a pregame ceremony that included the unveiling of 2006 and  2007 MLS Cup championship banners. Brad Davis provided a signature opening moment, delivering a beautiful, curling 30‐ yard strike for the game‐winning goal in the 67th minute.  

Clutch: Luiz Camargo’s 87th‐minute equalizer at New England on May 19 was Houston’s third late goal on the road this  season. Brian Ching’s equalizer in the 81st minute at Columbus on April 21 and Hainault’s game‐winner two minutes into  stoppage time at Chivas USA on March 11 were also reminiscent of 2011 for the Dynamo. Last year, Houston scored 14  goals in the final 15 minutes of games, the second most in MLS (Seattle).  

1st for Camargo: Luiz Camargo’s equalizer in the 87th minute at New England on May 19 was his first MLS goal.  

4 games in 11 days: The Dynamo completed a stretch of four games in 11 days with the 2‐2 draw at New England on May  19. While Dominic Kinnear rotated the squad throughout the run of games, several players logged large quantities of  minutes. Tally Hall, Bobby Boswell, Geoff Cameron and Jermaine Taylor each logged all 360 minutes in the four games.  Calen Carr (327 minutes), Brad Davis (324) and Will Bruin (273) each logged solid time as well.  

Ashe moves to second on franchise list: With his start on May 15 Portland, Corey Ashe played in his 137th MLS regular  season game to move to second on the Dynamo all‐time list, passing Brian Mullan and Pat Onstad.  

Boswell Bicentennial: Bobby Boswell faced his former team (D.C. United) on May 12 for his 200th Major League Soccer  appearance in his eight‐year career. Boswell also made his 200th MLS start vs. the Galaxy on May 26. The central defender  has been very consistent in his career, averaging 27.4 games per season and has played every minute of every match in 2012.  Boswell has played at least 23 games in each season and has played full time in 21 consecutive MLS matches (playoffs  included) dating to Sept. 14, 2011 at Columbus.    

Clean Sheets: The Dynamo earned their fourth clean sheet through nine games in the 0‐0 draw with Portland on May 15.  Through nine games in 2011, the Dynamo had recorded just one shutout. Houston recorded a total of six shutouts in the  2011 regular season.  

Carr Centennial: Calen Carr’s start at New England on May 19 was his 100th MLS regular season appearance.  


Davis reaches 25 Dynamo goals with BBVA Compass opener: Brad Davis’ sensational 30‐yard strike against D.C. United  on May 12 was his 25th goal in all competitions with the Dynamo. Davis is the third Dynamo player to reach 25 goals,  joining Brian Ching (64) and Dwayne De Rosario (32). It was Davis’ 37th MLS regular season goal.  

Offensive: The Dynamo produced 38 shots in their first two games at BBVA Compass Stadium. May 15 vs. Portland the  Men in Orange bombarded Troy Perkins with 18 shots. On May 12, the Dynamo outshot D.C. United 20‐4 for their most  shots in a game this season. Houston set a franchise record with 27 shots vs. New England on April 17, 2011.  

Davis Milestone: Brad Davis started against D.C. United on May 12 for his 150th MLS regular season start with the  Dynamo. Davis is the franchise leader in regular season starts.  

Cameron Climbing: With Cameron’s start at New England on May 19 he reached 141 appearances in all competitions to  pass Wade Barrett for seventh on all‐time list. 

Boswell Milestone: Bobby Boswell’s start at New York on May 9 was his 150th Dynamo start in all competitions. He is the  fifth Dynamo player to start 150 (Brad Davis, Pat Onstad, Brian Mullan, Brian Ching).   

Corey Ashe made his 175th appearance for the Dynamo in all competitions at D.C. on April 28. He is the third Dynamo  player to reach 175 appearances in all competitions (Brad Davis, Brian Mullan).   

Will Bruin scored in three consecutive games (4/15, 4/21, 4/28) to mark the fifth time a Dynamo player has scored in three  consecutive games (Bruin 2012, Ching 2006, 2008; Joseph Ngwenya 2007; Stuart Holden 2009).  

The three goals allowed by the Dynamo on April 28 at D.C. United marked the first time Houston has allowed three goals in  a game since Sept. 10, 2011, a 3‐0 loss at Sporting KC, ending a 15 game stretch without allowing three goals in a game.  

Possession: Despite playing their first seven games on the road, the Dynamo have won the possession battle in nine of 11  games on the season and had slim disadvantages in the others. Houston had a 60‐40% advantage vs. LA, 62% possession at  New England, 60% vs. Portland, 56% vs. D.C., 53% at New York, 54% at D.C., a slim 49‐51% disadvantage at Columbus,  55% at Chicago, 56% at Seattle, a narrow disadvantage (48‐52%) at San Jose, and 53% at Chivas USA.  

First Road Win of 2012: Houston’s 1‐0 win over Chivas USA on March 11 erased bad memories of the 2011 road schedule. It  took Houston 16 games to record its first road win of the 2011 campaign. After a 0‐6‐9 start, the Dynamo defeated FC  Dallas 1‐0 at Pizza Hut Park on September 24. 

Six years after the club’s first match on April 2, 2006, only two players remain on the Dynamo roster: Brian Ching and Brad  Davis. Defender Eddie Robinson retired in January and joined the front office as an assistant coach with the team’s Youth  Academy and as a color analyst on TV broadcasts. 

UP NEXT: TEXAS DERBY WITH FC DALLAS The Dynamo will face Texas rivals FC Dallas on Saturday, June 16 in the lone meeting for El Capitan in 2012. The match was  moved to 6:30 p.m due to heat concerns after it was originally scheduled for 4 p.m.
