Montreal meets Philly for first time

The Union come into this one with a renewed outlook on the season, riding back-to-back MLS league wins, with a new head coach at the helm. The Impact ended their three-game losing skid last weekend when they came from behind to be the Columbus Clew in unquie fashion,  2-1.
Montreal is currently sitting in 8th place in the Eastern Conference (21pts from 20 games), while Philly is in 9th place (17pts from 16 games). On paper this is be a highly contested, even match-up.

Impact dominate Sounders 4-1

Another historic day for the Montreal Impact - opening up their renovated Stade Saputo, taking on one of the best sides in all of MLS & handily beating them 4-1? I think that's a dream come true for any IMFC supporter.

Things got started early, in the 18th minute, when Felipe scored to put the Impact up 1-0. Then in the second half, Montreal kept playing their attacking style and netted goals in the 51st (Mapp), 58th (Wenger) and 87th (Neagle) minutes. On three of those four goals, Patrice Bernier tailed the assist.

Impact-Rapids meeting for first time

In 117th MLS match of the 2012 season, the Montreal Impact and Colorado Rapids will meet for the first time ever. The Impact's undefeated streak was snapped after four games, via the New York Red Bulls last weekend. The team is currently in 7th place (with 12pts from 12 games) in the MLS' Eastern Conference.

The Rapids, currently on a long homestand at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, come into this one sitting in 5th place (16pts from 12 games) in the Western Conference.

Impact shock SKC in a game of "firsts" for MTL

The Montreal Impact earned an impressive shut out at the home of the MLS' Eastern Conference leaders, Sporting Kansas City. The Impact won by a scoreline of 2-0 in front of 20,404 at Livestrong Park.

This marked Montreal's first ever road victory in MLS play. One that I don't think many supporters of the club will soon forget. Making the win even more impressive is the fact that SKC hasn't lost at home at all this season.

Impact draw with D.C. Untied

The game-tape from the Montreal Impact at D.C. United game won’t be used for any instructional purposes, I can assure you of that. The final line was Impact 1 – United 1.

The first half was a quite “blah,” boring 45 minutes of soccer. There was a lot of back and forth possession and a bunch of offsides calls. Montreal striker, Sanna Nyassi, was flagged three separate times for it in the half! There was absolutely no rhythm whatsoever when the whistle blew for intermission.

Impact Fall Apart In Last 15 Mintues At FCD

The Montreal Impact (1-5-1) won the battle for the first 75 minutes of the game at FC Dallas. They looked like the far better squad, playing aggressive, creating chances and in search of their first MLS road victory. But playing better for the first 75 means nothing when you give up two goals in the final 15 minutes and loose 2-1 to leave FC Dallas Stadium with zero points.

Impact Notch First-Ever MLS Win

Per: Pépé, Montreal Impact
The Montreal Impact scored two goals in-route to their first-ever MLS win. A 2-1 victory over rivals Toronto FC at Olympic Stadium this past weekend.

I’m going to dub it the “BMO Cup” seeing as both teams, IMFC and TFC, have BMO as jersey sponsors.

Three game road trip = 0pts for Impact

The Montreal Impact head home and end their three game road trip without gaining a single point. Montreal got a draw in their first MLS home match but have lost every road game thus far. Their record currently stands at 0-3-1.

Even though the home-side Real Salt Lake played well under their "A" game form, the Impact were never able to make them pay.

Henry's Hat Trick Down Impact 5-2

The New York Red Bulls blasted away the Montreal Impact by a scoreline of 5-2 inside Red Bull Arena on the last day of March. Montreal took the lead in the 18th minute via a combination of poor Red Bulls defense and the opportunistic play of Sanna Nyassi.

10 minutes later (28th min.) Thierry Henry equalized for the Red Bulls and 10 minutes after that (38th min.), Justin Mapp found the back of the net and put the Impact up 2-1.
