Revs also fall to Montreal in reserve game
FOXBORO, Massachusetts - The Montreal Impact reserves beat the New England Revolution reserves 3-1, Monday morning, at the Revolution's training field near Gillette Stadium.
The Impact opened the scoring in the 31st minute. Following a free-kick that was ineffectually cleared by the Revs defence, U21 Impact player Zakaria Messoudi took a shot from 20 yards out, from centre towards goal, which deflected off of a defender before beating goalkeeper Tim Murray towards the upper part of the net.
The Impact doubled its lead in the 42nd minute. Midfielder Sinisa Ubiparipovic, who was wearing the captain's armband for the match, took a pass from Lamar Neagle before beating Murray towards the opposite post from inside the 18 yard box.
The Revolution got one back in the first half in extra time when Dimitry Imbongo chased down a deep ball, and then beat Bush high.
Forward Andrew Wenger scored the Impact's third goal in the 61st minute. After forcing a turnover in the Revs' zone, Wenger broke in alone down the right flank, beating Murray with a low shot.
Impact goalkeeper Evan Bush came up big in the 37th minute, stopping a penalty shot by Imbongo. Bush read the play perfectly, diving to his right to stop the low shot. The PK resulted from a foul in the box on Sainey Nyassi.
