Mattocks winner for Whitecaps

The Vancouver Whitecaps defeated Houston Dynamo 3-1 in Sunday's only Major League Soccer clash.

Darren Mattocks, who missed the first part of the season though injury, was the match-winner, scoring in the fourth and 66th minutes before Dynamo substitute Macoumba Kandji pulled one back with seven minutes left.

Mattocks' first came when he lost he marked to convert a cross from Lee Young-Pyo, and he won the points by latching on to a pass from Gershon Koffie and firing home.

The Whitecaps had a super-sub of their own up their sleeves, though, with Jordan Harvey netting two minutes from time.

"If you keep on working hard in training and stay focused, hopefully you get your chance," Mattocks said. "I got my chance and took it. But I've got to realise this is one of many games and move past this really quickly and keep on working and stay focused.

"There are a lot of fantastic guys on the team. Anyone can be in the starting 11 at any point. That's the depth of the Vancouver team. Once, you get your chance, you just have to make full use of it."
