WFC2 Defender honored for his performance in 3-0 win over the Austin Aztex last week; Striker Caleb Clarke makes Team of the Week "Bench"

Just days after losing to the Seattle Sounders FC2, the Vancouver Whitecaps FC2 traveled to the Lone Star state to play the Austin Aztex.  The Thundercaps, who were able to put the opening day loss behind them, defeated the Aztex by a convincing 3-0 score to earn their first win of the season.

In addition to scoring an impressive goal on a free kick from outside the Austin 18-yard box, Nitti, who was also making his professional debut that evening, was instrumental in helping GK Spencer Richey earn a shut out.

WFC2 striker Caleb Clarke, who scored the first goal in WFC2 history earlier in the match, was named to the Team of the Week "bench".

WFC2 are next in action this Sunday afternoon when they play the Orange County Blues at 4pm.
