MONTREAL (AP) - Ignacio Piatti scored twice for the second straight game and the Montreal Impact beat Real Salt Lake 3-1 on Saturday night for their fourth victory in a row.
Piatti has 14 goals this season, scoring in four consecutive games.
Anthony Jackson-Hamel also scored for Montreal (10-8-6).
Luis Silva scored for Real Salt Lake (8-13-5), ending Evan Bush’s shutout streak at 284 minutes.
Following 3-0 victories over Philadelphia and Chicago, the Impact have scored three goals in a franchise-record three consecutive games. Montreal also has won seven of its last eight home games.
Piatti opened the scoring in the 11th minute off a 2-on-1 with Blerim Dzemaili. Piatti struck again in the 29th, just three minutes after Real Salt Lake tied it. Piatti danced his way around defender Tony Beltran’s slide tackle in the box and fired a left-footed shot into the far corner from a difficult angle.
Jackson-Hamel scored in the 47th minute.
