The Whitecaps jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first 10 minutes on goals by midfielders Ashley McGhee and Sara Maglio. A breakaway goal by striker Amber Allen in the 47th minute iced the game for the Whitecaps, who improved their Western Conference-leading record to 8-1-0. The Whitecaps played without striker Katie Thorlakson, midfielders Andrea Neil and Brittany Timko, midfielder/defender Kara Lang and defenders Randee Hermus, Sasha Andrews and Sophie Schmidt, all of whom were called up to the national team for its friendly match against the U.S. national team Sunday at Virginia Beach, Va. McGhee's goal was her third in as many games and fourth of the season. It was the first goal of the year by Maglio and Allen stroked home her team-leading sixth tally of the campaign. The shutout was shared by goalkeepers Sian Bagshawe and Stephanie Weston. Bagshawe started the game and Weston played the last 20 minutes. It was the sixth consecutive victory by the Whitecaps, who conclude their four-game road trip Saturday against the Seattle Sounders. © The Vancouver Sun 2005 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
