VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) Pedro Morales scored two goals a minute apart in the first half and the Vancouver Whitecaps edged the San Jose Earthquakes 3-2 on Saturday night.

Morales scored on a penalty kick in the 19th minute and kicked a shot in from about 20 yards out in the 20th minute.

Kekuta Manneh also scored a goal and added an assist for Vancouver, which earned its first win in five games.

Chris Wondolowski scored both goals for San Jose - in the 45th minute and in second-half stoppage time.

The Whitecaps had a goal disallowed in the 81st minute when Gershon Koffie was called for getting his hand on the ball just before he scored.

The game commemorated the first soccer contest between Vancouver and San Jose, which was played May 5, 1974, when both teams were part of the original North American Soccer League.
