Whitecaps FC 2 continue their push to the MLS NEXT Pro playoffs against fellow Western Conference side Colorado Rapids 2 this Thursday, August 25 at Swangard Stadium in their second meeting of the season. The young 'Caps, who sit seven points outside the Western Conference playoff places going into the weekend, will look to claim an important three points to continue their push to the MLS NEXT Pro playoffs.
PART TWO: Whitecaps FC 2 are set to take on Colorado Rapids 2 in the second and final meeting between the two teams this season. A month ago, the two teams settled for a 2-2 draw at the University of Denver Stadium in Denver, Colorado, with Rapids 2 claiming the shootout win. WFC2 striker Easton Ongaro scored his first two goals for the club that day.
EYES ON WRIGHT: In the team's last match against St. Louis CITY2, new striker Lowell Wright made his WFC2 debut, coming off the bench late. The former York United FC man, who's previously been called up to Canada's Men's U-20 side, tallied seven goals as well as five assists in 44 appearances across all competitions for the Canadian Premier League side.
