DC United and Montreal played out a 1-1 draw in front of 10,135 fans at RFK Stadium on Wednesday night. Bernardo Corradi put Montreal up a goal in the 68th minute, with Maicon Santos equalizing for United four minutes later. Both teams had trouble getting their shots on frame, with United finishing with 2 of their 18 on goal to the Impact's 1 from 12.
"There were little half chances today that maybe if we would’ve been a little bit sharper they could’ve been goals," Montreal coach Jesse Marsch said. "But the way we managed the game and how we took our time on set pieces showed that we were methodical in our approach and tried to keep the ball. I think we learned lessons from last game and got them this game."
On the road in Vancouver, Sporting Kansas City had few issues in a 3-1 win over the Whitecaps. What was interesting were the shot numbers, with Sporting only putting 2 of their 8 on frame to Vancouver's 7 from 19. How does a team score three goals while only putting two on target? After Aurelien Collin opened the scoring in the 24th minute, Vancouver put the ball into the back of their own net in the 51st. Kei Kamara made it 3-0 KC in the 65th, with Sebastien Le Toux spoiling Sporting goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen's shutout in the 79th minute.
