VANCOUVER — Forward Fredy Montero scored an early goal and the Vancouver Whitecaps refused to fold under pressure from the Portland Timbers to collect a 1-0 victory Friday night.

Montero scored in the ninth minute after midfielder Hwang Inbeom sent a pretty ball forward. Veteran Russell Teibert chipped the ball over to Montero who scored his team-leading third goal of the year with a left-footed shot over the shoulder of Portland goalkeeper Steve Clark.

Clark had to look sharp just a few minutes later. One of his own defencemen headed a ball that the leaping goalie had to steer away with his fingertips.

Henry scores, Vancouver Whitecaps settle for 1-1 draw with Philadelphia Union Vancouver Whitecaps coach Marc Dos Santos felt like his team deserved more on Saturday. The club captured a single point by battling the Philadelphia Union to a 1-1 draw, but Dos Santos was frustrated after the game. "Today we lost two points," he said. "We did enough to win the game, we created enough opportunities. But then if you don't finish your chances, you're always playing at the edge." Frustration has been building for the Whitecaps (1-5-3) through the beginning of the Major League Soccer season. The club has won a single game and lingers near the bottom of the table. Defender Jake Nerwinski says the group knew coming in that this year would be a challenge.

It's the first time this season the Whitecaps (3-5-3) have won consecutive games. Vancouver is (3-1-2) in its last six matches.

More than a dozen women who played for the Whitecaps and were part of Canada's under-20 talent pool around 2008, have come forward to allege Bob Birarda, a former coach for both squads, acted inappropriately with members of the team.

None of the allegations have been proven in court.

The Whitecaps looked sharp for the first 20 minutes of the match. Montero had another good scoring chance look in the 17th minute when he took a cross from Jon Erice and launched a right-footed shot that Clark stopped.

The Timbers found their pace late in the half. Portland looked dangerous off a pair of corner kicks around the 26th minute. Both Larrys Mabiala and Bill Tuiloma connected with headers that tested Crepeau.

The Timbers continued to challenge in the second half. Early on Blanco took a left-footed shot that a diving Crepeau stopped.
