Gerso shines in Sporting KC’s 3-0 victory over Whitecaps

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Gerso Fernandes played a role in all three goals and Sporting Kansas City beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-0 on Saturday night.

Fernandes scored in the 91st minute and set up an own goal that went off the foot of Whitecaps defender Ali Adnan in the first half. Fernandes assisted on Felipe Gutierrez‘s goal in the 56th minute.

Sporting Kansas City (6-7-7) improved to 2-4-4 on the road.

The Whitecaps (4-9-8) have lost three straight and are 1-4-5 in their last 10 games.

Tim Melia: “Gerso is like a nuisance to defenders. He’s so fast and he stays on your shoulder, and then he kind of gets you turned a little bit and a little off balance and he’s behind you before you know it. He’s been phenomenal for us.” #SportingKC | #ForGloryForCity
