CF Montreal Take Another 3 points on the Road

As the season winds down to its end, CF Montreal just keep racking up the points. That didn’t stop last night in New England when a goal from Alistair Johnston in the 72nd minute was the difference in the game.

First Half:

It was a rather uneventful first half with the Revolution getting the better chances in the opening 25 minutes. The best chance fell to Carlos Gil who found himself in tons of space in the area, only to see his shot go way over the bar.

CF Montreal’s best chance of the half came in the 34th minute, when there was a really nice build up that saw a low cross come in to Victor Wanyama, but his shot went comfortably wide of the post.

Second Half:

Justin Rennicks thought he’d opened the scoring very early into the second half, but he was rightly ruled offside.

Ten minutes later, it was CF Montreal’s turn to think they’d broken the ice, but Mathieu Choiniere just mistimed his run to rule out his goal for offside as well.

In the 72nd minute, CF Montreal did open the scoring. It was a quick counter attack that saw Romell Quioto picket Alistair Johnston early, and the wing back made no mistake as he put his shot past the Revolution keeper to make it 1-0.

New England’s best chance to level the game came in the dying moments when Carlos Gil picked out Giacomo Vrioni with an exceptional 50 yard pass, but the striker’s shot went well wide.

With that win, Montreal has clinched 2nd place in the east division, with a very small chance of actually catching Philadelphia for the number 1 spot. CF Montreal’s next game is October 1st against DC United.
