High flying 'Caps ready for Rhinos - 24 Hours
The Vancouver Whitecaps hope to bring the momentum from Tuesday's 1-0 win over Toronto FC into Rochester, N.Y. tomorrow when they resume USL First Division play against the Rhinos (4:35 p.m., Team 1040 and team1040.ca).
HORNS OF DILEMMA
The Rhinos and Whitecaps split their previous meetings. Eduardo Sebrango scored the 1-0 winner over Rochester on May 10 at Swangard Stadium. On June 13, Rochester scored a 3-0 home win after a two-hour rain delay. Ex-Whitecap Ze Roberto set up both of Mauricio Salles' goals. Johnny Menyongar had the other marker. Limping Whitecaps' defender Takashi Hirano is listed as questionable for tomorrow.
The Whitecaps return to Swangard to host Toronto FC in another Nutrilite Canadian Championship match on Wednesday before three league games against two teams: Carolina RailHawks (July 13 and 26) and Charleston Battery (July 23). It will be the Caps' longest homestand of 2008.
