Twelve minutes later Jones got in behind the Seattle defense down the right side made the goalie commit to the ball and then slotted a pass to an open Davis Strawn who pushed in the ball from 6 yards out.

Vancouver was in full control of the game almost scoring three other times including a 22 yard blast by Jones that hit the upper V and bounced away. The Victory were reduced to 10 men
when Jamoy Stevens received his 2nd yellow for a late tackle, earning him a red card and ejection
from the game.

Seattle slowly gained control of the ball possession and finally broke through when Wyatt Hill scored from 18 out on a low shot off of an assist from Juan Maldanado. Five minutes later Seattle scored on a spectacular bicycle kick by Ramon Ramos. The 25 yard shot came from a cross by Jose Chavez and caught Victory keeper Jordan Farr off his line and went into the goal with pace.

STARS-LOGO-new-575Vancouver pushed through the last three minutes of regulation and three minutes of extra time for the go ahead goal earning a free kick and three corner kicks. On the third corner kick Jesse De Leon sent in a hot cross that was headed down by Webster. Langdon Roscoe got to the ball inside the 6 yard box and slammed the ball into the upper corner of the net for the winner.

It was the second time this season that the Victory snagged a win in extra time at home after giving up a late goal. It was also the second game against Seattle that V2FC were able to get a late winner for all three points.

General Manager Barrett Goddard said after the match, “The red card really changed the game. We were in control and then had to scramble to get all three points. It is not exactly how you draw it up, but I’m proud of the guys for getting another late result. It shows their resolve.”

The win improves the Victory to 6-3-0 on the season and puts them in second place in the EPLWA standings with five games to go. V2FC travel on the road to play Yakima on Saturday June 21 at 6 PM at Marquette Stadium.
