Final Score: D.C. United 3, Montreal 1
Washington, D.C. (Sports Network) - D.C. United claimed its third win of the
season on Saturday as rookie Conor Doyle came off the bench to tally a goal
and an assist, leading United to a 3-1 win over the Montreal Impact at RFK
Luis Silva continued his hot start to life at United as he opened the scoring
in the 19th minute to notch his third goal in as many games since arriving
from Toronto FC.
Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins did well to keep his side in the game with
some important saves prior to halftime, and Jeb Brovsky equalized shortly
after the break after he was set up by Davy Arnaud.
But the introduction of Doyle in the 64th minute had a big impact as the
rookie netted his first MLS goal in the 68th minute by turning home a low
cross from James Riley at the near post.
The Impact threw men forward in the closing minutes in an attempt to level the
contest, and United took advantage by hitting on the break to wrap up the win,
with Doyle setting up a tap in for Jared Jeffrey to cap the victory in
Montreal has now won just one of its last six games in league play.
