MLS West almost settled
NEW YORK –Vancouver Whitecaps FC continue in their pursuit of the final Western Conference playoff berth after defeating Chivas USA 4-0 Wednesday night in front of their home crowd at BC Place.
With just three games remaining for each team, the Portland Timbers, Colorado Rapids, and Chivas USA all are unable to overtake Vancouver’s current 42 points. Therefore, the three Western Conference teams have been eliminated from 2012 MLS Cup playoff contention.
Two Western Conference teams, Vancouver and FC Dallas, remain in the running for just one remaining Western Conference playoff berth.
Already secure in their playoff positions are:
San Jose Earthquakes
Real Salt Lake
Seattle Sounders FC
Sporting Kansas City
