Two 'Caps named to MLS Team of the Week; Manneh up for Goal of the Week

VANCOUVER, BC – This is what happens when you shut out the league-leaders.

Goalkeeper David Ousted and left back Jordan Harvey have been named to the MLS Team of the Week after leading Vancouver Whitecaps FC to a 3-0 win over FC Dallas on Saturday night.

Ousted made four fantastic saves, while Harvey scored a goal – his second of the season – and helped shut down FC Dallas leading goalscorer Michael Barrios.

Coincidentally, Ousted and Harvey are the only two Whitecaps FC players to have played every minute of every match so far this season. This is Ousted’s third MLS Team of the Week selection of the season and Harvey’s first.

Also of note, Whitecaps FC winger Kekuta Manneh is up for MLS Goal of the Week. VOTE NOW.  

Whitecaps FC return to BC Place on Wednesday to host Sporting Kansas City (7:30 p.m. PT on TSN1 - tickets still available).
