CHESTER, Pa. -- The Vancouver Whitecaps hoped to hit the World Cup break on a high note. It didnt go quite as planned as the Whitecaps conceded a two goal halftime lead to finish 3-3 with the Philadelphia Union in a thrilling game at PPL Park. Vancouver showed fight with the late equalizer, pushing their unbeaten streak to seven games and finishing the first half of the season with road points in back-to-back weeks. "We managed to take our chances," said Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson. "I think the two goals we scored in the first half were from some excellent football, which is something Im trying to instill in the club. The second half, I think we went away from what we were doing very well in the first half." Robinson made three changes to the side that beat Portland 4-3 last week, starting Russell Teibert and Nicolas Mezquida in place of Kekutah Manneh and Sebastian Fernandez. Andy OBrien was given a rest as Johnny Leveron took his place at centre back. The first good chance of the game fell to Philadelphia in the 10th minute. Cristian Maidanas in-swinging cornerkick met the head of Conor Casey, who flicked on to captain Amobi Okugo. The ball was slightly behind and the centre back could only head over the crossbar. It was the Whitecaps, though, who started the scoring. Collecting the ball with space from 30 yards out, Teibert found Nigel Reo-Coker streaking forward from his right back position. The Englishmans one-touch cross found the head of Erik Hurtado, who placed a perfect header downward and into the corner for his fifth consecutive goal in all competitions. But the Whitecaps were forced to make a change in the 24th minute, with OBrien coming in for the injured Jay Demerit. The Vancouver captain felt soreness in his previously-injured left foot and was forced out of the game. He walked to the team bus on crutches. The Whitecaps then got a second goal in 42nd minute, this one from a counterattack. Sequential passing from Pedro Morales to Reo-Coker got Hurtado into space on the right. Cutting to his right, he was able to play a short diagonal for Mezquida, who slammed it home from point-blank range. In the second half, Vancouver survived a scare in the 51st minute when Philadelphia hit the post. Looping a loose ball back into the box, Vincent Nogueiras pass went over Danny Cruzs head, bounced in front of OBrien, and fell to Maurice Edu. The Union midfielder was turned around, and the ball somehow caromed off the woodwork and out of the danger zone. Philadelphia would then score three goals in eight minutes. The Union got a goal back in the 63rd minute through the active Casey. It was Fabinhos ball that put Maidana into space on the left side, and the Argentines cross was met by a diving header that hit the post and rolled into the back of the net. It didnt take long for substitute Sebastien Le Toux to make an impact, as he found the next goal in the 68th minute. Again the attack came down the left, with Maidana pushing the ball into space for Nogueira to collect. The midfielder got his head up and played a left footed square ball for the oncoming Le Toux, who finished calmly into the back of the net. The Union went ahead just two minutes later, on Caseys second goal of the game. This time the forward got the ball outside the penalty area, was left unchallenged, and hit a low drive into the bottom right corner. Vancouver countered with a 74th minute substitution, bringing Darren Mattocks in for Matias Laba. That sub would pay off, when the Jamaican forward earned a penalty kick for the Whitecaps just six minutes later. Latching onto a deep ball in the left channel, Mattocks charged into the penalty area and was brought down by goalkeeper Zac MacMath. Morales stepped up and converted the spot kick to level the game 3-3. "Its a good point away from home," said Reo-Coker. "That game had everything in it. We were fantastic in the first half and played some great football. Second half, they were the better team. To go down 3-2 away from home and get it to 3-3, its a good result. "Were disappointed in the way we conceded some goals and weve let teams back (into games), but overall weve got to say its a good point away from home." Vancouver enters the 18-day World Cup break with 21 points and a 5-2-6 record. "We do feel happy with where we are going (into the break)," Hurtado said. "Obviously were disappointed with (giving up the lead), but it just shows the character of our team. We want to win away, just as much as we want to win at home. Were going to look at that when we come back from our break. Were not going to take a physical break, just a little mental break. Were going to come back fit and ready to go."

The trip couldnt come at a better time, as its homecourt that proving a disadvantage to Toronto this season. Kemba Walker hit a buzzer-beating jump shot in overtime to lift the Charlotte Bobcats to a 104-102 overtime victory Wednesday, handing the Raptors their eighth loss at home this season. "Its one of those things that whatever it is, were not generating enough focus. . .," said Raptors coach Dwane Casey, at a loss to explain the discrepancy between playing at home and on the road. "We have far more focus on the road than we do at home, and that is a concern. I talked to the team about it today. We have great fans, great crowd, warm building, hot building, so theres no reason why we cant come out with that type of fire and intensity and dont wait until you get hit in the mouth, punched in the mouth until we turn it on." The Raptors are 5-6 on the road this season, and just 4-8 at the Air Canada Centre. Walker scored 29 points, including his 18-footer that sealed the victory for Charlotte (12-14). Al Jefferson added 24 points. "It hurts, everyone who loses a game by a buzzer beater, youd rather get blown out by 50 than lose on a buzzer beater," said Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, who had 17 points and six assists. DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 30 points for Toronto (9-14), while Amir Johnson had a game-high 13 rebounds to go with 10 points. Newcomer John Salmons finished with 11 points, while Jonas Valanciunas added 10. The Raptors led by as much as 16 points midway through the third, but the Bobcats closed the quarter with a 25-9 run to send the game into the fourth locked at 70-70 in front of an Air Canada Centre crowd of 15,201. It was a see-saw battle through the fourth quarter, and the Raptors trailed by three points twice in the last 21 seconds -- the difference negated the second time by Lowrys three-pointer with 12 seconds to go to tie the game 95-95. DeRozan then stripped Walker on the Bobcats last possession to guarantee overtime. Valanciunas, Johnson and DeRozan had the Raptors only three field goals in a sloppy five minutes of overtime that saw the Raptors miss on their first six shots.dddddddddddd But DeRozan made one-of-two free throws with a second left to tie it up 102-102. Walker, guarded by Valanciunas -- who was slow to get to him -- was open when he made the winning buzzer-beater. "Tough, tough one second," Valanciunas said. "He made a tough shot. Could make a better job on defence, but it happened. Could be earlier, maybe he wouldnt make that, but what happened happened." Now the Raptors depart for a tough four-game road trip that takes them through Dallas, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and New York. The Raptors play eight of their next 10 games on the road -- a good thing, perhaps. "I dont know, I have no idea," Lowry said, on the poor home record. "I really cant explain it, I cant put my foot on it, weve really got to find a way to change it around." Lowry doesnt agree with Casey assessment that its a lack of focus. "Naw. . .weve just got to find a way to win at home, make the homecourt more of an advantage for us." The Raptors shot 43 per cent from the floor to Charlottes 46 per cent. The Raptors outrebounded the Bobcats 50-40. It was another strong game for Johnson, who injected some desperately-needed energy into one of the ugliest quarters of basketball by either team in a while. The Raptors two assists were the only assists in the quarter, and both teams shot just under a lowly 32 per cent. The Bobcats led 18-15 heading into the second. The Raptors pulled away in what was an only slightly more exciting second quarter, outscoring their visitors 32-19. DeRozan had 11 points in the frame, and Lowrys driving layup with 23 seconds left put the Raptors up by 12. They took a 47-37 lead into the halftime break. Walker scored 11 points in the third quarter as the Bobcats chipped away at Torontos lead, tying it up on a Jefferson layup with two minutes to play.
