Three is a magic number. Well, at least for the Vancouver Whitecaps FC 2 on Sunday it was. Thanks to goals from Marco Bustos (24′), Gloire Amanda (68′), and Chris Serban (82′) the Caps (3-4-2, 11 points) earned the victory at home in their 3-1 defeat of the Colorado Switchbacks. The Switchbacks fell to 3-3-4 on the season with 12 points despite a goal from Sean McFarlane (86′).
