Late Ignacio Piatti goal propels Impact past Whitecaps
MONTREAL (AP) — Ignacio Piatti scored in the 83rd minute to give the Montreal Impact a 2-1 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday night.
Jack McInerney scored in the first half for the Impact (3-4-2), who have won three of their last four matches.
Pedro Morales scored for Vancouver (7-6-2) from the penalty spot four minutes before Piatti got the winner.
With time winding down, Piatti scored his team-leading third goal. Andres Romero spotted Piatti's run in the box, and the Argentine made no mistake with a strike into the corner of the net.
Montreal extended its home win streak to three games, a first for the Impact since August 2012.
Jordan Harvey earned the penalty kick for Vancouver after Romero took him down on the edge of the box.
