Montreal Impact 2-1 Vancouver Whitecaps: Urruti boosts play-off chances
Montreal Impact climbed into seventh in the Eastern Conference thanks to a 2-1 win over Vancouver Whitecaps in MLS on Wednesday.
Maximiliano Urruti's 37th-minute goal proved to be the match-winner at Stade Saputo in Quebec, boosting Montreal's play-off chances.
Vancouver, bottom of the Western Conference, had taken the lead through Yordy Reyna in the 17th minute.
Reyna had a chance to double the Whitecaps' lead eight minutes later, but he saw his penalty pushed away by Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush.
Instead, a Doneil Henry own goal brought Wilmer Cabrera's Montreal level in the 35th minute before Urruti's goal.
Urruti took down a cross at the back post before firing past Whitecaps goalkeeper Maxime Crepeau from inside the area.
Montreal are seventh in the Eastern Conference but level on points with eight-placed Toronto, who have played two fewer games.
