MATCH STORYLINES: Quakes take on Western Conference foe Friday at BC Place

Kickoff
Kickoff is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. at BC Place. The match marks the first time the Earthquakes will travel to Canada this season.
Broadcast Information
The game will be aired live on UniMas, 1590 KLIV (English) and 1370 KZSF (Spanish).
 
Aces of August
The Earthquakes were nearly unbeatable in August last season with a 4-1-1 record and have continued that success into 2016. After opening the month with a scoreless draw against New York City FC, they are undefeated in their last five games in August dating back to last season. The club’s 40 total wins in the month of August are the most in any month.
 
A Prime Opportunity
With a win against Vancouver, the Earthquakes would position themselves for a playoff run by eclipsing their Western Conference foes in the standings.
 
Block Like Bingham
Earthquakes goalkeeper David Bingham has been unstoppable in the month of August, amassing an impressive 4-1-2 record with six shutouts in seven career starts stemming back to last season. Bingham only allowed two total goals in that span, boasting a 0.29 GAA all-time in the month.
Keeping the Streak Alive
The Quakes are looking to secure their first road victory of the season and add to their season-high four-game unbeaten streak on Friday. The last time the club went unbeaten in five straight matches was during a 2-0-3 run in May of 2015.
