MONTREAL (AP) - Felipe scored in stoppage time and the Montreal Impact beat Toronto FC 1-0 on Wednesday night to win the Canadian Championship final for the second straight year.
Felipe scored on a powerful strike to the right of goalkeeper Joe Bendik seconds after striker Marco Di Vaio hit the crossbar. The teams tied 1-1 last week in the first leg in Toronto.
“You have to seize the moment,” Montreal coach Frank Klopas said. “This was one of our goals as a team. When it’s there in front of you, you can’t let opportunities get away. You can’t take them for granted.”
The Impact earned a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League. They will play in a group with the New York Red Bulls and El Salvador’s C.D. FAS.
“When I get on the field, I just want to do my best and do my job and keep doing the job I did today,” said Felipe, from Brazil. “It’s important for us to represent Canada well.”
