Vancouver Whitecaps Women grab a late point in wild home opener - Vancouver Sun

2,432 women's soccer fans at Swangard Stadium would have been forgiven if they made a quick exit after 77 minutes of scoreless soccer between the Vancouver Whitecaps Women and Ventura County Fusion tonight. But if they had, they would have missed an explosion of goalmouth action and a last gap finish that secured a point for the locals. With a quarter hour to go, 17-year-old Canadian international forward Jonelle Foligno put the home team in front following a corner kick but that lead was soon extinguished by a defensive mistake at the 83rd minute and another five minutes later. Ventura County sub Tenley Garcia was the beneficiary of lucky bounces off defenders on both occasions but took her chances well before the 'Caps came home with a wet sail. As Whitecaps forward Jodi-Ann Robinson sent over an injury-time cross, 20-year-old defender Emily Zurrer buried a game-tying header to level the scores at 2-2. The Whitecaps women play next on Friday May 23 against California expansion outfit, the LA Legends, as part of a men's-women's doubleheader. The game starts at 5:00 p.m. at Swangard Stadium.
