In a mach-up of winless Canadian teams, the Montreal Impact were able to deliver a victory for a raucous crowd at the Olympic Stadium today.

Rookie Andrew Wenger scored his first career goal for what proved to be the eventual game-winning goal in Montreal's 2-1 victory on Saturday.

Impact midfielder Sinisa Upiparipovic opened the scoring for Montreal with a 17th-minute strike. Toronto FC had a few chances, but never could break through in the first half. A second-half red card to TFC's Logan Emery made the job even tougher for the visitors. Wenger made the score 2-0 in the 80th minute when he beat Ty Harden before striking a perfect shot past Milos Kocic.

Toronto striker Danny Koevermans added a consolation goal for the visitors in the 88th minute, but it didn't change the outcome, which saw Montreal improve to 1-4-1, while TFC dropped to a league-worst 0-4.

Here are the match highlights:


What did you think of the match? Impressed with Montreal's performance? Starting to wonder how long Aron Winter will stay head coach in Toronto? Still trying to figure out how TFC can play so much better in CONCACAF Champions League than MLS play?

  1. The play of the game for me was when Donovan Ricketts became an instant Montreal legend when he kicked Danny Koevermans in the crotch going for a save. That was impressive.
