D.C. United Vs. Montreal Impact: United Falls 3-0; Misses Chance To Move Up Standings

Three days after a scintillating 4-2 win over the Chicago Fire, D.C. United were distinctly second-best Saturday afternoon, falling 3-0 to the Montreal Impact at Saputo Stadium. The win moves Montreal just one point behind D.C. United in the race for the final playoff spot in MLS' Eastern Conference, though United does have three games in hand. United remains one point behind Chicago and Houston, as well as four points behind second-place New York, and six points behind first place Sporting Kansas City.

With United choosing to rest Dwayne De Rosario and Chris Pontius to start the game, Montreal took a 1-0 lead in the 24th minute when Marco Di Vaio latched on to a through ball from Patrice Bernier, beat United's offside trap, and finished cooly past Bill Hamid.

Montreal doubled their lead five minutes after halftime when Emiliano Dudar was penalized for a shoulder chargeon Collen Warner in the penalty area. Bernier put the penalty away himself to make the score 2-0.

Bernier added a second goal in stoppage time at the end of the match, dribbling past Brandon McDonald before beating Hamid.
