Cristian Dajome Leading Whitecaps

Cristian Dajome has been leading the way offensively for the Whitecaps all season long. His eight goals in 22 games leads the Caps, and he has also managed a total of four assists this season as well. The 27-year-old Columbian forward is in his second season at BC Place and has taken a big step up from last year. In 2021, Cristian has scored five more goals than he did last year and has the same number of assists he had a season ago. The season got off to a slow start for Dajome as it took him nine games before he found the back of the net in a 2-2 tie against rivals Toronto FC, but he has been on a tear since that moment. Excluding his first eight games where Cristian didn’t score a single goal, the Columbian has eight goals in only 14 games which is an incredible scoring rate for any player. In that span, his goal-to-game ratio sits at an impressive 57%, and the Caps have been in flying for over that stretch. This season, Cristian’s most memorable games have come in a 2-0 win over Montreal in May and a 2-2 tie against Minnesota in July. In both of those games, Dajome scored two goals and was the main factor in his team’s success. This season another memorable performance from the Columbian came against the team with the most point in the Western Conference and Vancouver’s arch-rivals just south of the border, the Seattle Sounders. In a game against the Sounders in June, Cristian Dajome got a goal, and an assist in Vancouver’s impressive 2-2 draw against the first-placed team. More recently, Dajome hasn’t scored a goal since his two-goal performance against Minnesota at the end of July but has still been managing to help his team put balls in the back of the net. On August 13th, Cristian assisted in a 2-1 win against another team fighting for the final playoff spot, LAFC. Cristian also provided an assist in Vancouver’s recent win over Austin. Cristian Dajome has been on a tear this season, and if he can keep this production up, the Caps are sure to be in the playoff picture come the end of the season.
