WHITECAPS 3, FC DALLAS 0
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Jordan Harvey and Kekuta Manneh scored for Vancouver and FC Dallas had an own-goal in the Whitecaps' victory.

Harvey made it 2-0 in the 63rd minute off a Cristian Techera's corner after the ball fell to him in the Dallas penalty area. Manneh sealed it in the 77th when Blas Perez — just into the match as a sub against his former team — touched the ball to Manneh for a shot through Seitz's legs.
