SALT LAKE CITY – It was only a matter of time.

After RSL took eight shots in the first 45′, Brayan Vera found the back of the net on the club’s first attempt in the second half.

Vera lined up for a free kick, noticed that Vancouver’s goalkeeper was standing too far to the left, and put it just inside the right post.

The goal was Vera’s second of the season.

His first goal also came off of a free kick earlier this month against Colorado.

A win would be big for the club’s playoff hopes. However, they come into the match losing 6 of their last seven games.

On the other side, the Whitecaps just recently had a winning streak ended by the Houston Dynamo. Before Wednesday, Vancouver’s last loss came on September 4 in the Leagues Cup.

RSL will have Danny Musovski back in the lineup on Saturday.
