Colorado Rapids 0-1 Vancouver Whitecaps: Mattocks exploits error for three points

Colorado Rapids 0-1 Vancouver Whitecaps: Mattocks exploits error for three points

Marc Piscotty

The Whitecaps navigated the Rapids, pilfering the host side for a 1-0 away win.

The Vancouver Whitecaps exploited a defensive error to beat the Colorado Rapids 1-0. Darren Mattocks scored the game's only goal shortly before half.

Colorado held nearly 60 percent of possession and took 15 shots in total, six on target. However, an error from Drew Moor cost the host side the match.

Jordan Harvey was given the entire left flank free. Moor whiffed on his attempted clearance from Harvey's cross, and Mattocks pounced to tuck the loose ball past Matt Pickens.

That was Vancouver's only shot on goal, but it stood up as the winner.
