'Caps top TFC

By Sean McCaffery, September 6, 2020

The Canada based MLS teams re-started their seasons facing each other, and the games count for their national Cup. For Vancouver their first home game in 189 days was a win, 3-2 over their country men as a trio hit for the goals. Cavallini, Baldismio & Nerwinski found the back of the net in that order, for the first pair, they had their first goals in MLS as Jake sent the game winner home. They had their 3rd win on the year as they opened a 3 game homestand.

Cavallini had some accurate passes come his direction at 17'. As the player, aged just 20 and a Homegrown, Baldisimo sent one to Adnan who then fed his cross, a lead pass to Cavallini while he came forward, heading it true for the  1-0 early lead.

Baldisimo, just missed on a DFK last game, was not to be denied as his long distance strike off a rebound was put away at 57'.

After each of the first goals, TFC qualized, Osorio was followed by Puzuelo.

The defense then went on the offense for the home team, off the restart Adnan hit Rose at the endline, he then played it back to the middle for the final score as Nerwinski slid in at 76', making it 3-2. 

Gody had his first game getting in a half following injuries to his right calf and quad had him out for an extended period. The 'Caps once more had 6 starters who are Canadian and a total of 8 play for the third game straight.
