VIDEO: All Whites striker Myer Bevan grabs a double in Canadian Premier League

All Whites forward Myer Bevan is the joint-leading goalscorer in the Canadian Premier League after his two goals helped Cavalry FC to a 3-1 win against Vancouver.

Bevan (26) scored twice in the game’s early stages and almost made it a hat-trick when he rattled the crossbar in the 28th minute.

“I’m still looking for the hat-trick,” Bevan said after the June 11 game. “Hopefully, it comes sometime. But I’m grateful that the goals dropped.”

Bevan has scored five goals so far and the win lifted Cavalry into fourth place.

He shares the goalscoring table with Shaan Hundal who opened the scoring for Vancouver, only to watch his goalscoring rival grab a quick double in response.

“It’s good to finally get the two goals, but it’s all about the performance today,” Bevan told OneSoccer. “It’s been coming for the boys, we work day in and day out and I think this performance today we deserved it a lot.”
