Vancouver 2-0 RSL: Whitecaps snap losing skid - Via MLS (3:48)

Two goals in the final 15 minutes from Cristian Techera and Anthony Blondell secured a much-needed win for Vancouver over Real Salt Lake. (3:48)

Cristian Techera connected on a penalty kick, Anthony Blondell scored his first MLS goal and the Vancouver Whitecaps beat Real Salt Lake 2-0 on Friday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Techera scored in the 76th minute after midfielder Nick Besler pulled down Vancouver's Nicolas Mezquida in the penalty box. Techera celebrated by pulling off his jersey, resulting in an ejection for a second yellow card.

Just three minutes later Alphonso Davies, who had subbed into the game in the 61st minute, had a nice run down the side of the field, then passed to an open Blondell, who tipped the ball into the net.

The Whitecaps (4-4-1) rebounded from a 6-0 loss at Sporting Kansas City, the worst defeat in the team's MLS history. Real Salt Lake (3-4-1) is 1-8-1 in its past 10 games at BC Place Stadium.
