Pedro Morales gave Whitecaps fans a star-powered effort on a busy afternoon in Vancouver’s 4-3 victory over the Portland Timbers Sunday.
The 29-year-old midfielder converted on two penalty kicks in the first 26 minutes and added two second-half assists in a match that saw both a Whitecaps’ surge and snuff out of the Timbers’s near-comeback.
Morales now has five goals and five assists in 11 games in 2014 for Vancouver, which now sits in fourth place in the MLS Western Conference playoff race with 20 points.
Morales beat out a field of candidates this week that included Deshorn Brown, Jermain Defoe, Conor Casey and Jon Busch.
