Latest Montreal Impact Items
Mauro Diaz scored on a free kick and set up a penalty and FC Dallas opened the season with a 3-2 comeback victory over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night in coach Oscar Pareja's debut.
Patrice Bernier scored from the penalty spot and added another goal late in the second half and the Montreal Impact defeated D.C. United 3-0 on Saturday.

Coach Ben Olsen often noted this past offseason that D.C. United's restructured roster, with substantially more depth and balance than in years past, sure looked good on paper. But in Saturday's 2-1 win at the New England Revolution, those qualities paid dividends where it matters most - on the field.
The New York Red Bulls hope forward Luke Rodgers can get his visa woes fixed and return to the Major League Soccer team sometime this season.
