VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Whitecaps arent mathematically in must-win territory a€” its just starting to feel that way. With five games to go in Major League Soccers regular season, the club sits two points behind the Portland Timbers for the final Western Conference playoff spot after a demoralizing 3-0 road loss to their Pacific Northwest rivals last weekend. The Whitecaps have slid down the standings in dramatic fashion thanks to a stretch of just three wins in their last 17 games. Heading into Saturdays matchup with Real Salt Lake, they know time is starting to run out on a season that began with such promise. You can watch the game live at 7pm et/4pm pt.on TSN2 and TSN GO. You can listen to the match on TSN 1410 and, with pregame coverage beginning at 5pm et/2pm pt. You can also catch the post-match show immediately following the game live from Doolins Irish pub live on TSN 1410. The last month, month and a half have been must wins and weve let ourselves down, said defender Jordan Harvey. We have to go back to fundamentals, go back to what were good at a€” at home in particular a€” and get three points. Apart from Vancouvers eye-popping run of form since June, the Whitecaps have scored just two goals from open play in their last nine games, a well-documented trend that must be reversed. What weve been talking about this whole week is getting the intensity back a€” that hunger, that desire a€” to go and play and to give (your) best effort, said Canadian midfielder Russell Teibert. We cant say that were going to win, but we can say that were going to be the hardest working team on that day. The Timbers play an early start at Toronto FC on Saturday so the Whitecaps should know where they stand by the time their game kicks off at 4 p.m. local time. Maybe (Toronto striker Jermain) Defoes back and he can bang in four goals, quipped Vancouver head coach Carl Robinson, who played three seasons at TFC. But the Welshman added the result at BMO Field wont matter much if the Whitecaps (8-8-13) dont keep up their end of the bargain against Real Salt Lake (13-6-10), which is 10 points ahead of Vancouver in the West. Listen, weve got to take care of our own business. We didnt take care of our own business (last week) because we werent at the levels we need to be, said Robinson. They get bigger and bigger as you get into the final few games of the season. Theres no room for error at all now. Against Portland we were disappointed with the performance, as well as the result. We cant be disappointed Saturday because its a game we need to win. The lack of goals from Vancouvers young strikers a€” namely Darren Mattocks, Erik Hurtado, Kekuta Manneh and Sebastian Fernandez a€” has been compounded by the fact that the Whitecaps seem to sag when theyre scored against, as was the case last weekend. You cant always score the first goal. I think when we do were a different team, but if we concede weve got to have strong mental characters, said Robinson, in first season at the helm. Even though were a young group, it doesnt matter. Weve got to deal with disappointment better. We havent done that enough this year. Its been mentioned a couple of times in the meetings weve had that we need to deal with it. Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted said given the situation, his team must play its remaining games as if the playoffs have already started. We need to get into that mentality. At home against a good team, we need to see if we can grind out a win, said Ousted. We all got together and we know what has to happen these next five games. Its upping the intensity, upping the discipline, (and) doing all the little things right. The Whitecaps and Real Salt Lake have played to a pair of hard-fought draws in Utah this season and Teibert said Saturdays encounter shouldnt be any different. We have a great rivalry with this team and its been growing each time that weve played against them, said the Niagara Falls, Ont., native. I know they try to get in our heads and were trying to get in theirs. Its going to be not only a physical battle, but a mental battle as well. Real Salt Lake comes in needing a point to clinch a playoff spot and boasts a lineup that includes striker Joao Platas 13 goals and a midfield anchored by veteran U.S. international Kyle Beckerman. Theyre obviously a quality team. Theyve shown that here in B.C. Place, said Harvey. We have to be aware of their good players and their attacking threat. (But) at home, its usually all about us. If we come with the right mentality, score early and play fluid ... I think well get three points. Real Salt Lake head coach Jeff Cassar, who hinted this week he might not play all of his starters because of the artificial surface, expects the Whitecaps to come out flying in a game they need. Theyre not going to sit back, Cassar told his clubs official website. They need points. Theyre at home. They have to get three points. Vancouver doesnt sit back too much. Well, they tend to sit back a little bit, but their front three tend to stay a little bit higher. If were organized as were building up, I think we can shut that down. If the visitors can manage that, the Whitecaps playoff hopes will become even more tenuous.

The Spaniard appears well on his way to keeping that streak intact this week after posting a 7-under par 65 and matching the course 36-hole record of 12 under overall after the second round of the Houston Open on Friday. As well as Garcia played in taking a one-shot lead over Matt Kuchar, the focus afterward was a mix of this week -- with a heavy dose of attention turned toward next weeks Masters. Garcia has eight PGA Tour wins in his career, but the 34-year-old world No. 8-- once thought to be Tiger Woods challenger for the top spot in the world -- is still in search of his first major championship. Hed like nothing more than end that quest next week, while taking full advantage of his prep time at the Golf Club of Houstons Augusta National-like conditions for the rest of this weekend. "I mean, obviously I feel good, but every week is different," Garcia said. "First of all, we got to finish this week, and hopefully next week Ill be feeling good (and) not too many things will be bothering me health-wise, and then just feel good on the course, hopefully play well and things happen." Weyburn, Sask., native Graham DeLaet, the top Canadian in the field, is tied for 32nd place after shooting a 71. Calgarys Stephen Ames is in a tie for 42nd place. Garcia, opening on the back nine, climbed the leaderboard with a birdie-eagle-birdie stretch on his front nine. His eagle on the par-5 13th came after sticking his 282-yard second shot to 5 feet, giving him a 4-shot lead following his morning round. Kuchar, who opened with a 6-under 66 on Thursday, briefly tied Garcia at 12 under late in his afternoon round before closing with a bogey from the fairway bunker on the 18th. The two will be paired with Matt Jones on Saturday after tournament officials decided to send threesomes off both tees early in the morning in an attempt to beat expected rain in the afternoon. "If we get some rain and it doesnt blow too hard, of course the course will soften up and the scores will go even lower," Kuchar said. "No telling ... It could be really tough." The weather was the clearest its been all week on Friday, with the sun shining brightly and the wind gusting throughout the day at the 7,441-yard Golf Club of Houston.dddddddddddd The windy conditions limited first-round co-leader Bill Haas to a 2-over 74. Charley Hoffman, the other first-round leader, fell to 3 under par overall after a 4-over 76. While the early leaders struggled, Phil Mickelson shot a 2-under 70 and is 6 under overall, six shots back of Garcia in ninth. After a bogey-free opening round on Thursday, Mickelson -- still recovering from last weeks muscle pull that forced his withdrawal from the Texas Open -- overcame a pair of bogeys on Friday with four birdies. The five-time major winner, who won the Houston Open in 2011, had back-to-back birdies to reach 6 under where he is one of 11 golfers within six shots of Garcia. "It was a lot more difficult today with this wind than it was the first day," Mickelson said. "But either way, I feel like I felt better than I have in a long time with my game." Garcia finished Friday two shots off the course record of 63 in just his second visit to the former Redstone Golf Club -- which switched names following an ownership change. He only needed 25 putts and showed hes ready for the slick greens and tight fairways at next weeks Masters. He equaled the courses previous low 36 holes set by Johnson Wagner in 2008 and matched in 2012 by Jeff Maggert. Garcia, who opened with a 5-under 67 on Thursday, began Fridays round on the back nine. His first birdie came following a 12-foot putt on No. 12, and he followed that with a spectacular eagle on the par-5 13th. He started the 592-yard hole with a 307-yard tee shot, following that with a 282-yard 3-wood to 5 feet of the hole. The eagle putt sent him into the lead at 8 under, and he then birdied the par-3 14th before putting together three straight birdies on his back nine. "It was nice to kind of get going because as windy as it was, I knew there were a lot of difficult holes out there and a lot of shots that were going to test you," Garcia said. Jones, Cameron Tringale, Jimmy Walker and Shawn Stefani are tied for third at 8 under, while Steve Stricker and Ben Curtis are at 7 under. Walker, who leads the PGA Tour with three wins this season, matched Garcias 7-under 65 on Friday. Defending champion D.A. Points missed the cut after shooting a 2-over 74 on Friday and finishing 1 over overall. ' ' '
