MLS Round 31: Houston Dynamo

Home Game Day Info

Saturday, September 14th, Kickoff 7:00pm

If you take a peek at the MLS standings right this minute, you’ll see 5 teams have a prefix on their listing. The Whitecaps have earned an “e”, which I think we can all guess does not stand for “excellently already in the playoffs” (that prefix is x, naturally). Brace yourselves for a shock: the “e” means the Whitecaps have been officially “e”liminated from the playoffs.

While we’re all still reeling from this absolute thunderbolt of a surprise*, the Whitecaps season grinds on to its now confirmed conclusion on October 6th. This Saturday sees the also-struggling Houston Dynamo stagger into town after their game Wednesday against Minnesota. The Whitecaps back line is still thinned out after the injuries to Nerwinski and Godoy, so here’s hoping the midweek game that Houston played will slow them down a bit and the Caps can help them earn their own “e”.

Remember that when the team & players are down that support from the stands means the most to them. Be vocal and let them see that we’re still there supporting until the end.
