Impact tops in MLS East
The Montreal Impact are home from a lengthy roadtrip with not one but 2 victories---matching their entire Season 1 win total on the road.
The Impact hung on to beat Portland 2-1 Saturday, after opening the season the week before with a 1-0 win against the Sounders in Seattle.
Montreal is home to host Toronto FC Saturday afternoon, a game you'll hear live on CJAD 800 with Grant Needham and yours truly, starting with the Pregame Show at 3:30PM.
The hot start marks the first time the Impact have been over .500 and it is all being accomplished under MLS "rookie" head coach Marco Schallibaum, a veteran of the Swiss League.
Hassoun Camara scored a beautiful goal on a volley that caught former Impact keeper Donovan Ricketts flat-footed.
