New coach Martin Rennie only needed one chance to break Vancouver's winless road streak, as the Whitecaps beat Chivas USA 1-0.
Chivas USA, meanwhile, has lost its first two matches of the season, both at home.
Jay DeMerit provided the game's only goal, when he dove to head home a corner kick midway through the second half. It was the central defender's first MLS goal as well as Vancouver's second from a corner.
The Goats held nearly 65 percent of possession and out-shot Vancouver 11 to six.
