'Caps, TFC draw after late-game drama in 1979 NASL Championship anniversary match

June 1, 2019 - Major League Soccer (MLS) - Vancouver Whitecaps FC News Release

VANCOUVER, BC - A tense All-Canadian affair between Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Toronto FC ended in a 1-1 draw at BC Place on Friday evening.

Despite the result, the 'Caps stretch their undefeated streak to four matches, coming in front of members of the 1979 NASL Soccer Bowl championship as the club commemorated the title's 40th anniversary. The title team's head coach Tony Waiters was inducted to the club's Ring of Honour pre-match.

With the point, the 'Caps drew level with FC Dallas for the seventh and final playoff spot in the Western Conference as Vancouver enter the Concacaf Gold Cup break. The Toros and San Jose Earthquakes, who sit just a point behind in the standings, each still have a match to play this weekend.

Yordy Reyna made his return after a six-match absence due to injury and changed the tenor of the game when he came off the bench in the second half. After a number of threatening runs, he was rewarded late when he drew a foul inside the box from Drew Moor, setting up Montero's penalty goal with only six minutes to play.

TFC would battle back, however. The visitors had the ball fizzing along the right side, eventually ending with Marky Delgado assisting on DeLeon's game-tier in the 89th minute. The shot deflected off defender Ali Adnan and into the net, tainting keeper Maxime Crépeau's four-save outing.

After over two weeks off, Whitecaps FC are back in action when they host Colorado Rapids at BC Place on Saturday, June 22. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Visit for ticket information.
