For the second week running the Vancouver Whitecaps managed to find a late winner and bring home all three points on offer thanks to Octavio Rivero.  It's 6 out of 9 points to open the season for the Caps, but can the lads do it again this weekend when the Portland Timbers come to town?

Part 1 (1'- 31'): Mark & Jorge take a look back at last Saturday's late and dramatic winning goal against Orlando City SC, and discuss player performances both good and bad.

Part 2 (31'- 52'): the guys are joined by Chris Rifer from the Soccer Made in PDX podcast to preview this weekend's big Ca5cadia match against our rivals from the Rose City.  Chris brings us up to date with the latest news from Portland and offers some predictions for the match.

Part 3 (52' - 66'): it's that time of the week to take a look at the most recent scores and standings from around the league and dive into the mailbag.
