Midfielder Ryan Gauld nearly found the lead for the Whitecaps shortly after halftime only to see his shot from seven yards drilled wide.
Venezuelan striker Sergio Cordova, a marquee transfer for Vancouver within the off-season, was inches away from finding the tip of a diagonal cross from Ranko Veselinovic just before the tip of the match but it surely just eluded the tip of his boot.
