Liam Mackenzie netted the winner for the 'Caps.

“The players have had a quick introduction to MLS NEXT," said Scott Howey, Whitecaps FC U-15 head coach. "In what was our last MLS NEXT game of 2021 against one of our Cascadia rivals, it was great to get a result to give the players something tangible that they can feel for all the hard work they are putting in on the training pitch. “

FVSL - U-19

The U-19s continued their FVSL season with a 3-1 victory over Premier FC on Saturday.

Chad Baker, Chris Album, and Yayo Mutombo scored the goals.

"It was a good game from start to finish," said Rich Fagan, Whitecaps FC U-19 head coach. "We dominated the ball, playing the majority of the game in their half. Defensively we played on the front foot and we didn’t allow Premier FC many clear opportunities other other than the one goal we conceded. It was a good team performance!"
