Whitecaps settle for draw after wild finish

--

VANCOUVER - Head coach Marc Dos Santos was happy his team earned its first point of the MLS season, but he was left frustrated by a video replay decision in extra time that forced the Vancouver Whitecaps to settle for a 0-0 draw with the Seattle Sounders Saturday night.

It looked like the Whitecaps would have a chance to win their first game of the 2019 campaign after referee Robert Sibiga signed a yellow card over a tackle in the box by Seattle centre back Kim Kee-hee. That would have set up a penalty kick, but the decision was overturned by a video review.
