Vancouver 3-3 New England: 6-goal thriller - Via MLS (1:58)

Cristian Techera's hat trick helped the Vancouver Whitecaps fight back to a 3-3 home draw against the New England Revolution. (1:58)

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Cristian Techera scored three second-half goals and the Vancouver Whitecaps overcame several defensive errors to draw with the New England Revolution 3-3 on Saturday.

The Whitecaps are winless in five games and have just one victory in their past nine matches.

Vancouver was down 2-0 early in the second half. Whitecaps defender Aly Ghazal had an own goal and made a poor pass that helped set up a goal by New England's Teal Bunbury, while another Revolution goal came after defender Sean Franklin mishandled a ball.

Techera made it 2-1 in the 49th minute off a cross from Marcel de Jong. Russell Teibert set up Techera again two minutes later, with Techera scoring on a header after Matt Turner stopped the first shot.

Bunbury gave New England a 3-2 lead in the 59th minute after Ghazal's weak pass was picked off.

Techera then completed the hat trick in the 74th minute off a pass from striker Yordy Reyna.

Cristian Penilla also scored for New England.
