VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Pedro Morales scored on a penalty kick in the 23rd minute and the Vancouver Whitecaps beat the Houston Dynamo 1-0 on Saturday night.

The Vancouver captain sent goalkeeper Joe Willis the wrong way from the spot after Dynamo defender Jalil Anibaba was judged to have fouled Whitecaps striker Masato Kudo in the area.

Morales leads Major League Soccer with four goals in four games to start the season, all on penalties. Vancouver’s other two goals also have come from dead-ball situations - off a corner and an indirect free kick.

Vancouver improved to 2-2-0, and Houston dropped to 1-2-1.
