VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Sebastien Le Toux’s goal in the 80th-minute gave the undermanned Vancouver Whitecaps a 1-0 victory over the Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

Vancouver won while playing a man down after striker Darren Mattocks was ejected in the 60th minute following his second yellow card.

The Whitecaps (7-3-4) posted their seventh victory of the season, surpassing the six they mustered in their 2011 expansion season. Vancouver moved four points up on Colorado (6-7-1) in the Western Conference standings.



Colorado won both games against Vancouver by identical 2-1 scores last season.

Le Toux scored on a sliding volley off Davide Chiumiento’s long cross from near midfield. Chiumiento was the key to the play as he dribbled away from three or four defenders in his vicinity.
