Whitecaps defeat Dallas FC

Lucas Cavallini scored a last-minute penalty kick to lift Vancouver to a 2-1 win over FC Dallas on Wednesday evening at BC Place.

The goal was his third of the season and came after a scramble in front of the net with Dallas goalkeeper Jimmy Maurer spilling a deflected cross at the feet of a Whitecaps attacker.

The ball found its way to centreback Ranko Veselinovic, who had pushed forward in attack, and was brought down for the penalty in the 92nd minute.

The result means Vancouver has won three of its last four games, having beaten Toronto FC, Valour FC and drawing 3-3 with the San Jose Earthquakes. The loss ends Dallas' nine-match unbeaten streak.
