Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Blake Smith bagged his second goal of the
season to help the Montreal Impact claim a 1-0 victory over Sporting Kansas
City at the Stade Saputo on Saturday.
The match was scoreless heading into second-half stoppage time, but Marco Di
Vaio slipped a through ball into Smith's path on the left side of the penalty
area, allowing the Impact midfielder to grab the winner with a shot through
Jimmy Nielsen's legs in the sixth minute of added time.
The win tightens the standings at the top of the Eastern Conference table.
Montreal (10-5-5) improves to 35 points to remain level with Red Bull New
York, which edged Real Salt Lake on Saturday to keep pace. The two sides move
to within one point of first-place Sporting (10-6-6).
