CHESTER, Pa. (AP) Borek Dockal scored twice, Ilson Pereira had a goal and an assist and the Philadelphia Union beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 4-0 on Saturday to snap a two-game losing streak.

Philadelphia had nearly 60-percent possession and outshot the Whitecaps 25-2, including 11-0 on target.

Dockal opened the scoring in the 24th minute, side-netting a left-footer from the center of the box, and doubled the advantage in the 71st.
