Jahmir Hyka kicked off the scoring with a goal in the 7th minute while Magnus Eriksson notched the second goal from the penalty spot in the 18th minute to give the Quakes a 2-0 lead at the half. However, that slipped away in only 2 minutes thanks to goals from Yordy Reyna in the 59th minute and Cristian Techera in the 61st to give the Whitecaps the tie. Their comeback was complete with a goal from Kei Kamara in the 68th minute and the visitors ended up with a 3-2 win. The Quakes remain with just one home win since the opener on March 3.
