The Vancouver Whitecaps had to rely on an unlikely source as they came from behind to beat Atlanta United 3-1 on Saturday evening, thanks to a brace from centre-back Kendall Waston.
The powerful defender scored twice before halftime after Greg Garza had given Atlanta an early lead at BC Place Stadium. Fredy Montero was then credited with a third Vancouver goal, although that should have been awarded to Tim Parker as the Whitecaps exploited Atlanta’s weakness in defending corners.
The result means the Whitecaps sit fifth in the Western Conference heading into the international break, while Atlanta are down in eighth in the East and have a game to play this weekend away at Chicago.
