Gee, Fry, and Dyer named to CPL’s TOTW for Week 7

Vancouver FC remains undefeated at Willoughby Park and now sits second in the Canadian Premier League (CPL) table after a come-from-behind 2-1 win over B.C.-rivals Pacific FC. After the team effort displayed in Saturday’s match, three Eagles were named in the League’s Team of the Week (TOTW) for Matchweek Seven. Paris Gee, Vasco Fry, and Moses Dyer each earn their second nod to TOTW in 2024.

Gee continued to be an established presence in Vancouver’s backline as the dynamic winger is now the only VFC field player to play every minute in the club’s seven CPL regular season matches. The 29-year-old found the scoresheet in Saturday’s match with an assist on Dyer’s equalizing goal for his second helper in 2024. In just seven matches, Gee has already tied his CPL career high for most assists in a single season which was set in 2022 with York United FC.

Gee also impacted the match on the possession side of the game by registering the team high in two out of three successful dribbles, in winning 11 out of his 14 duels, and in winning two of his three aerial duels. Including Gee’s team high of two chances created, tying Dyer, the winger earned himself Performance of the Match for the second time in 2024, previously earning the recognition after his first VFC goal in Matchweek 1.

Fry earns TOTW recognition for the second consecutive week after scoring his second goal of the season and setting a CPL career high for most goals in a single season. The native of Peru seems to have a knack for registering the game-winning goals in Salish Sea Derbies as the clinical finish in Saturday’s match was reminiscent of Fry’s first CPL goal scored in the last match against Pacific on Sept. 30, 2023.

In addition to Fry’s goal, the midfielder registered three shots and a team high of nine final third entries. He also made 46 accurate passes in the match plus won both of his tackles, made three interceptions, and five clearances. 

Dyer scored the Eagle’s equalizing goal in Saturday’s match for his third of 2024 to now solely lead the squad in goals. The native of New Zealand has proven that he has a nose for the net and enjoys placing himself in the dangerous areas, as evident in registering two big chances, four shots, and seven touches in the opponent’s box in Saturday’s match. 

The 27-year-old attacker’s drive for the ball was reflected in other aspects of the stats line including winning five duels, one aerial duel, both of his tackles, and drawing one foul in Saturday’s match.
