VANCOUVER - The timing was right for the Vancouver Whitecaps to play the best team in the league. Sebastian Fernandez scored a pretty goal on a booming shot from about 30 yards out as the Whitecaps beat the Seattle Sounders 1-0 in Major League Soccer play Saturday night. The win restored some shine to a Vancouver team that had looked tarnished in their last two games, including a loss that ended a franchise record eight-game undefeated streak. The Whitecaps also snapped a two-game scoreless streak. "Any game you play against Seattle is always tough," said Vancouver coach Carl Robinson. "The game came at the right time. "We havent performed to our level (the last two games). We havent been bad but I dont think weve been good. We got back to work this week and refocused on certain things." Seattle coach Sigi Schmid said Vancouver was the hungrier team. "Hats off to them," he said. "I thought they played with a lot of passion because of the (past) results that they had and we didnt really match that completely until the second half. "We were around but we didnt put shots accurately enough on goal. This is a bump in the road. That is all it is." The Sounders played without several of their best players, including leading goal scorers Clint Dempsey (returning from the World Cup) and Obafemi Martins (injury). Seattle also was missing midfielders Osvaldo Alonso and Gonzalo Pineda who both were suspended due to an accumulation of yellow cards. Schmid refused to use the missing players as an excuse. "We had enough quality on the field to get a result and to play," he said. Vancouver midfielder Gershon Koffie said the Whitecaps still had to beat a good team. "We dont really think about the players that are missing," he said. "We were all about the three points. "We got it." The Whitecaps controlled most of the first half against their Cascadia rivals. They managed to keep possession of the ball and passed with authority. In the second half they buckled down defensively when Seattle began to press. "The second half was about rolling the sleeves up, grit and desire and heart," said Robinson. There was a large contingent of Seattle fans among the loud, flag-waving sellout crowd of 22,500 at B.C. Place Stadium. Fernandez scored in the 12th minute when he took a pass from Pedro Morales and launched a rocket that sailed past the outstretched fingers of Sounders keeper Stefan Frei. "Pedro gave a good ball to me," said Fernandez, who scored for the third time this season. "I turned with the ball and there was space. "It was a good opportunity. I just tried to shoot." Morales was a thorn in the Sounders side all night. In the 19th minute he lofted a free kick from a sharp angle that landed in the box. The ball sat tantalizing for a few seconds but was cleared before a Whitecap could touch it. In extra time of the first half, Morales struck a curling shot that Frei stopped. "If he doesnt perform, we dont play well," said Robinson. "He went into areas and got the ball. "His range of passing was excellent. He calmed it down, he slowed it down, he won free kicks." Morales said the win helped prove the young Whitecaps can keep pace with the best teams in the league. "It was extremely important," he said through an interpreter. "It was a chance to show our fans what we are capable of. "If we continue with this attitude we will keep growing as a team." The loss snapped a three-game win streak for Seattle, who came into the game unbeaten in five matches. Seattle continues to lead the MLS standings with 35 points from a 11-3-3 record. Vancouver and Seattle tied in the teams previous meeting in May. The Whitecaps remain fifth in the Western Conference but climbed to within a point of fourth-place Colorado. Vancouver has 25 points from a 6-3-7 record. One of the games prettiest plays came in the 33rd minute when defender Steven Beitashour sent a perfect cross to a charging Erik Hurtado, but the forward sent the shot high and wide. The Sounders found their legs in the second half. Midfielder Lamar Neagle came close in the 52nd minute, firing a shot that drifted just wide of the Vancouver net. Seattles Tristan Bowen, a second-half substitution, banged a shot in the 60th minute that took a dangerous bounce before being gobbled up by Whitecaps keeper David Ousted. Notes: Morales wore the captains armband with Jay DeMerit out with an ankle injury. … Beitashour returned to the Whitecaps lineup for the first time since May 10 after playing for Iran at the World Cup. … Vancouver midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker says the birth of his daughter Scarlet has "completely changed" his life. … The Whitecaps play at home next Saturday against Chivas USA, travel to Toronto for a game July 16, then play in Salt Lake July 19.

Max Hall picked up his first CFL win as a starting quarterback and Will Ford caught a touchdown pass and ran in another as the Bombers staved off elimination with a 34-27 victory over the Montreal Alouettes on Monday afternoon. Winnipegs second win in Montreal in 2013 gave them the three-game season series between the clubs by a 2-1 margin, but they will need to win their final three regular season games and have the Alouettes lose their last three to grab the final East Division playoff spot. "So youre telling me theres a chance right?" said Hall. "So weve just got to keep playing. All we can control is winning next week (at home Saturday against Toronto) and, if we can do that, well still have a chance." Clarence Denmark and backup quarterback Jason Boltus also had TDs and Sandro DeAngelis kicked two field goals for Winnipeg (3-12), which ended a four-game losing streak. S.J. Green and Tyrell Sutton scored and Sean Whyte had four boots for Montreal (6-9), which ended a two-game winning run and wasted a chance to clinch a playoff berth. The Alouettes turned the ball over seven times, including three interceptions thrown by starter Josh Neiswander and one by backup Troy Smith. "Anything weve improved on, from turnovers to penalties, we did none of today," said Montreal coach and general manager Jim Popp. "Theres no excuse. We beat ourselves. Youve got to give (Winnipeg) credit. They didnt have to come here and play the way they did, but we gave them a lot, too." The third-place Alouettes can still finish second in the division and host a playoff game as they head into back-to-back games with their second-place Hamilton, who they face Sunday at home. Hall, starting a fourth straight game, completed 16 passes for 223 yards. The Bombers ended a seven-game run with fewer than 300 yards on offence by putting up 309. "Im not going to lie -- that feels really good," said Hall. "I was proud of our guys, with our backs against the wall, to hang in there and get a win. It says a lot about our team going forward." It was a messy, flag-filled game played mostly on a wet field before 22,853 at Percival Molson Stadium. And it featured four lead changes. The game turned midway through the fourth quarter with Montreal ahead 26-24 when Hall made the same handoff to Ford on successive plays. The first gained eight yards and the second got 69 as Ford broke clear but was caught by Chip Cox on the one-yard line. Ford then ran in for the score. Before that, the Bombers got little on tthe ground against the CFLs best run defence.dddddddddddd "Thats a really good defence," said Hall. "We felt we had a few checks at the line we could hit them with. Obviously, we did a good job executing it and Will found the hole and got loose. That long run he had won the game for us, bottom line." The Alouettes marched back late in the game, but Whytes bid to go 5 for 5 in field goals failed when his 33-yard attempt sailed wide. In the first quarter, White fumbled the snap on a punt attempt to give Winnipeg the ball on the 17. On the next play, Hall hit Ford with a TD pass. Desia Dunn picked off a Neiswander pass on Montreals first possession to set up a DeAngelis boot. Troy Smith replaced Neiswander in the second quarter and led a 60-yard TD drive capped by a 12-yard toss to Green. But Smith was picked off on his next series, and Neiswander went back in. After Mike Edem recovered a Hall fumble, Neiswander hit Duron Carter with a 40-toss to the Winnipeg one, where Sutton ran it in for a touchdown. A partially-blocked punt gave Montreal the ball on the Bombers 12 and Whyte was good on the field goal, but Winnipeg marched back for Hall to connect on a 40-yard TD pass to Denmark to tie the score at 17-17 with nine seconds left in the first half. Between two third-quarter field goals for Montreal, Denmark made a tough 34-yard catch in traffic that led to a one-yard TD plunge by Boltus. Denmark ended the day with five catches for 105 yards. "Dennys just a fast guy and hes proven he can be a reliable guy," said Hall. "On the touchdown pass, he was really just a backside post clear-out. Weve never thrown that ball in practice or anything. But, before that play, something told me we might have a chance." Neiswander has been sharp in his last three outings, but he completed fewer than half his attempts while putting up 199 yards. Smith went 3 for 6 for 35 yards and a touchdown. Popp will need to decide whether to stick with Neiswander or go back to rookie Tanner Marsh, who has returned from a sprained thumb and dressed as the third quarterback. Or try giving Smith a start. The loss left the Alouettes 3-5 at home, so they will have a losing record on home turf for the first time since the team returned to Montreal in 1996. "The reality is, there are three games left and if we win out, well be second in our division and host a playoff game -- its right there," said Popp. "We know we can beat anybody in the league, but we cant play down. Were better than our record, but we didnt play that way. Today we played to our record and maybe lower. Weve got to do a better job."
