Vancouver Whitecaps see LA Galaxy off 3-0 on Thursday at BC Place Stadium. Caps are now in 11th place, with 37 points from 44 matches, while Galaxy sit in 8th, with 40 points from 44.

After a goalless first half, Caps piled on the pressure in the second and were rewarded, when Gauld gave them the lead in the 58th minute. The momentum was again with The Village, who then scored again courtesy of a goal from Vite on the 68 minute mark to establish a 2-0 result. However they weren’t finished yet and Ricketts made it 3-0 just before the final whistle to give a final score of 3-0.

Substitutions for Caps included Julian Gressel, Berhalter, Godinho, Ricketts and Teibert for Raposo, Owusu, Martins, White and Vite, respectively. Galaxy replaced Joveljic, Grandsir, Costa, Alvarez and Klještan with Víctor Vázquez, Cabral, Brugman, Chicharito and Riqui Puig.

There were bookings for Owusu, Martins, Vite and Berhalter from Caps, and Víctor Vázquez, for Galaxy.

Caps next face Seattle Sounders while Galaxy are at home to Colorado Rapids.
