The Vancouver Whitecaps are your 2013 Cascadia Cup champions
All the Vancouver Whitecaps could do was watch the finale of the 2013 Cascadia Cup on Sunday.
In the end, they got the result they needed.
Sounders FC’s 1-0 road loss to Portland ensured the Whitecaps would finish on top this season in the games among Pacific Northwest rivals. It marks the first time Vancouver has claimed the all-MLS version of a competition that dates to 2004.
Each team has won in the past three seasons.
Seattle would’ve claimed the trophy this year with a win against the Timbers.
“We’re disappointed for our fans that we weren’t able to bring that home,” said coach Sigi Schmid, “but we didn’t lose the Cascadia Cup tonight; we lost the Cascadia Cup on Wednesday.”
The Sounders, of course, lost to the Whitecaps on Wednesday, 4-1, at home.
Here is an updated look at the Cascadia Cup history:
Seattle: 2006, 2007, 2011
Vancouver: 2004, 2005, 2008, 2013
Portland: 2009, 2010, 2012
And here are updated standings, results and a schedule below:
Whitecaps — 2-1-3 (9 pts.), +4 GD, 13 goals scored
Timbers — 1-1-4 (7 pts.), 0 GD, seven goals scored
Sounders — 2-3-1 (7 pts.), -4 GD, six goals scored
