Deiber Caicedo and Cristian Dajome scored second-half goals, and the Vancouver Whitecaps ended an eight-game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over the Galaxy on Saturday night.

Dajome capped the scoring for the Whitecaps (3-7-3) in the 77th minute on a give-and-go with Brian White.

Caicedo tied it in the 48th with a low-hard volley to finish the rebound of a goalkeeper deflection.

Rayan Raveloson opened the scoring in the fifth minute for the Galaxy (8-5-0) with a header of Victor Vazquez’s cross. The Galaxy had won three of their last four coming into the match.
