Vancouver hung on for another huge win away from home after Puerto Rico on Friday (as many away wins as they managed in the first 11 attempts this season), scoring 6 goals over the two games. But I say "hung on" because Miami pressured throughout the second half and especially at the end, including a shot off the crossbar in stoppage time, but have to rue the missed PK. The extreme heat seemed to have a big effect on Vancouver, especially since it was a very open game and they defended for all of the second half with virtually no possession in the last 15 minutes. Some fortune in the victory, but a very hard-fought victory.

Vancouver, now 9-8-5 (W-D-L) and back into second place, have 6 matches remaining and 5 of them are at home, and the one away match is down the road in Seattle.
