Cubas scores in 89th, Whitecaps beat Los Angeles FC 1-0
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Paraguayan international Andres Cubas scored his first MLS goal in the 89th minute to give the Vancouver Whitecaps a 1-0 victory over Los Angeles FC on Saturday night. Cubas intercepted a clearing attempt, taking the ball off his chest at the top of the penalty area, and fired a right-footer past former Whitecaps goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau and into the bottom-left corner. Vancouver improved to 7-8-3. MLS-leading Los Angeles dropped to 11-4-3. Crepeau made a save in his return to BC Place. Jeers and boos rained down on the 28-year-old Canadian nearly every time he touched the ball.
