We knew this was going to happen eventually. Some team was going to decide that going toe-to-toe with the Sounders made absolutely no sense and would simply opt to bunker and hope to catch them on the counter. That it was the Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place in just the fourth game of the season is, admittedly, a little bit of a surprise but give them credit for executing a game plan.
The 0-0 tie was definitely frustrating, but at least it wasn’t a 1-0 loss as likely would have been the case if Robert Sibiga had not reversed his penalty call deep into stoppage time. That allowed the Sounders to set a new franchise record by claiming their 10th point through four games, tied for the second most points in the league and third best goal difference. All in all not a bad place to be.
