It's another loss for the WFC 2, the Whitecaps USL affiliate, as they fell to the Sacramento Republic FC by a final of 2-0 at Bonney Field on Wednesday. (You can see the match replay here)
That means the Junior 'Caps now sit with just one win and three losses after four matches played. While there is still plenty of time left in the season to get their game together, WFC 2 have some obvious problems they need sorted out.
They've scored a goal in just one regular season match so far this season, which resulted in a 3-0 victory over the Austin Aztex. In the other three matches they've played, they've been outscored 8-0.
Now the WFC 2 are obviously going to get some slack this season considering this is their first go around in the USL. Even more, they were taking on the defending league champs in Sacramento, and were playing their fourth straight road match to open the season.
Taking everything into consideration, the 'Caps put forth a pretty good effort and will get a chance to show the home fans what they can do this weekend. WFC 2 take on TFC II on Sunday at Thunderbird Stadium.
