1. Waston header goal vs the Rapids, BC Place goes nuts
Whitecaps fans stood in the concourse looking up at TVs as a live stream of the Portland and Dallas game played. Things were not going well and it was becoming very apparent that the Whitecaps would need a victory over the Colorado Rapids if they were to reach the playoffs. The game finally began and ‘Caps fans looked on nervously. When half time finally came, the booming voice of the announcer informed the crowd that Portland had won against Dallas and as a result, the Whitecaps would need to win in order to claim a playoff spot.
In the 70th minute Pedro Morales whipped in a corner kick and the giant Kendall Waston nodded home. BC Place erupted. In all my time going to Whitecaps games BC Place has never been so deafening. The ‘Caps had a few scares as the game came to close but held on for the victory.
