Did you miss the FC Dallas vs. Vancouver Whitecaps matchup? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us Joe Cannon was back to his steady best managing to keep out the 5 Dallas shots that reached his net. Matt Watson, Gershon Koffie, and especially the solid Jun Marques Davidson, provided a hard working link on the pitch Saturday.
Did you miss the Sporting Kansas City vs. Vancouver Whitecaps matchup? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us Joe Cannon had a rather undistinguished game, with some questions about his positioning. Sebastien Le Toux and Eric Hassli were the stars of the week for Vancouver.
