Montreal Impact vs. D.C. United: United Score Two In The Second Half To Ensure All Three Points

After the sluggish start, United turned up the pressure on Montreal and dominated most of the game en route to a 3-0 win in front of their largest crowd of the season. The game never looked in question after United scored a late goal in the first half. United added two more in the second half to secure all three points.

Robbie Russell scored a beautiful header off of a Branko Boskovic, fresh off signing a new contract, free kick early in the second half. Hamdi Salihi poached a late goal in stoppage time to add the dagger.

With the win United secure all three points from the match and will stay atop the Eastern Conference standings. United sit alone atop those standings after New York Red Bulls could only manage a draw against lowly Toronto FC.

United now have two weeks off before their next match in Houston, and United fans will have to wait until August 4th for their next home game.
