Omar Salgado showed fans in the Pacific Northwest on just why the Vancouver Whitecaps made him the first pick in the 2011 MLS Draft.

The tall striker with the deft touch and deceptive speed repeatedly torched a second-team Seattle Sounders squad on Sunday, helping the Whitecaps post a 3-2 victory against the Sounders in the final match of the Cascadia Summit.

Salgado opened the scoring when the rookie torched veteran defender Taylor Graham to make the score 1-0. Salgado also had a hand in the Whitecaps' third goal when he chipped Seattle goalkeeper Terry Boss, only to have the shot cleared and eventually converted by Brazilian trialist Camilo da Silva Sanvezzo.

Here are the match highlights, along with some other MLS pre-season results from Sunday:
