Wednesday night: CCL Cascadia clash ends in stalement

After their MLS match on Saturday that left Vancouver in first place and Seattle reeling, neither team was ready to send out its first team for Wednesday's Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League opener that ended in a 1-1 draw. Of the two teams, the Sounders, losers of seven of their previous eight MLS matches, will happily take the point.

Rookie Tim Parker continues to stand out at center back and scored his first pro goal, but the Whitecaps could not hold on. Lamar Neagle equalized 11 minutes later for Seattle, which finished with a 12-6 edge in shots.

Vancouver started an entirely different team from the one that won, 3-0, on Saturday in Seattle. For the Sounders, only captain Brad Evans and Chad Barrett kept their starting spots.
