VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Ignacio Piatti scored twice as the Montreal Impact beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-2 in the MLS season opener for both clubs on Sunday.

Dominic Oduro had the other goal for the Impact. Jordan Harvey and Kendall Waston scored for the Whitecaps.

Piatti put Montreal ahead in the 19th minute when he dribbled through Vancouver’s defense with ease and fired a shot past Whitecaps goalkeeper David Ousted.

Vancouver nearly got even when Octavio Rivero hit the crossbar seconds after the restart before Impact goalkeeper Evan Bush stopped the Whitecaps striker on another good chance 10 minutes later after a ball over the top from Pedro Morales.
