NEW YORK — Major League Soccer has suspended Vancouver winger Christian Bolanos for one game for a serious foul in the Whitecaps’ 3-2 season-opening loss to visiting Montreal last weekend.

Bolanos was shown a yellow card in the 62nd minute for a hard tackle on Impact defender Laurent Ciman.

He will serve the suspension during Vancouver’s match at Sporting Kansas City on Saturday.
