By BOB MACKIN
- THE BUZZ:
The Vancouver Whitecaps snapped a six-game winless streak Sunday with a 2-0 win over visiting Miami FC in United Soccer Leagues' First Division play.
- CHIN AND CHUCK:
Whitecap Charles Gbeke headed a sailing ball from Gordon Chin into the upper right corner in the 80th minute. Gbeke scored an insurance marker 10 minutes later on Randy Edwini-Bonsu's breakaway pass.
- HANNIGAN AND AGAIN:
Blues' goalkeeper Pat Hannigan fearlessly ran off his line on several occasions. He kept his squad even by stopping Marcus Haber's point blank shot in the 19th minute and a 25-yard blast by Chris Pozniak in the 37th.
- NOLLY AND GOLLY:
Tanzanian international midfielder Nizar Khalfan made the save of the game to help Jay Nolly preserve his shutout on a Paulo Araujo header in the 62nd minute.
- SLUMP BUMPED:
The 8-9-7 Whitecaps cling to the seventh and final playoff spot with six games left. They host the Rochester Rhinos on Saturday.
