July 14, 2013 at 9:34 PM

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, July 14 (UPI) -- Camilo Da Silva Sanvezzo scored twice within a 5-minute span Sunday, elevating the Vancouver Whitecaps over Chicago 3-1.

Sanvezzo broke a scoreless tie in the 66th minute when he got control of the ball at midfield, weaved his way into the penalty area, then maneuvered past defender Shaun Francis to launch a right-footed shot into the net.

He doubled the advantage in the 71st minute with a clinical finish after Chicago goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi came far out of the net to block his first attempt on a breakaway.

Kekuta Manneh also scored for the Whitecaps (9-5-5), who extended their undefeated run to six games and jumped into second place in the Western Conference.

Patrick Nyarko tallied late in stoppage time for the Fire (6-9-3).
