NEW YORK (AP) - David Villa and Kwadwo Poku each had a goal and an assist Saturday night, and New York City FC beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 for the expansion franchise’s first back-to-back wins.

Villa finished a great team buildup in the 31st minute. A quick two-pass combo from Patrick Mullins and Mehdi Ballouchy led Villa to an open space in the middle of the box.

Mix Diskerud put NYCFC (3-7-5) up 2-0 in the 76th minute, finishing Poku’s cross low and hard into the left corner.

The Impact (4-5-2) got one back on Wandrille Lefevre’s well-timed header off Laurent Ciman’s free kick in the 88th minute. It was the first goal of Lefevre’s MLS career.

But NYCFC answered in the 90th minute when Poku finished Villa’s cross.

It was the first time NYCFC scored three goals in a match.


The story and headline have been corrected to show correct spelling of Diskerud.
