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.

Real Salt Lake In The Middle Of Heated Playoff Race
RSL currently holds the 6th seed in the west with a record of 11-11-7. Vancouver sits one spot above RSL, only leading by one point.
RSL and Vancouver last matched up in February. Real Salt Lake pulled out a 2-1 win at BC Place in Vancouver, British Colombia.
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.
