Soccer: Whitecaps earn win

Soccer: Teitur Thordarson believes the huge psychological lift his players will get from their first USL First Division win in five games is the perfect tonic as the Whitecaps men embark on a gruelling four-game road trip to the U.S. this week.

Eduardo Sebrango Saturday thumped home his sixth goal of the season in the 12th minute of the second Swangard encounter against the Railhawks in 13 days - and the striker could easily have had a hat-trick before half-time.

With only a solitary goal advantage at the break, however, head coach Thordarson challenged his team to show their collective defensive mettle to fend off the impending Carolina charge - and they didn't let him down.
