VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Cristian Techera scored in the 32nd minute in the Vancouver Whitecaps' 1-0 victory over FC Dallas on Saturday night.

The Whitecaps (14-9-3) regained first place in the Western Conference, moving two points ahead of idle Los Angeles. Vancouver has won four of its last five games.

Dallas (11-8-5) has lost three straight.
