Houston Dynamo 1 - Montreal Impact 1 : Dramatic Draw, Crazy Finish, A Spark For a Rivalry

Exciting Finish, Dramatic Referring Calls But No Playoffs for the Montreal Impact

After the most exciting last 20-30 minutes of a game, the Montreal Impact get out of Houston with a 1-1 draw. After a decent start to the first half , the Impact conceded a goal at the end of the half via Will Bruin, at the 44th minute.

The expansion team responded via Sanna Nyassi who had a breakaway from a Marco Di Vaio pass, at the 66th minute.. The Gambian scored after Tally Hall saved the initial shot and it was 1-1 with 20-25 minutes left in the game.

A key change in the game was Alessandro Nesta coming out for Lamar Neagle at half-time giving more numbers in the midfield for Montreal. It seemed to work as Lamar Neagle had many crosses and having Nyassi play higher up was helpful.

A Weaver shot off the post with a few Troy Perkins saves kept the Impact in the game until the end. Justin Mapp came in for Andrew Wenger, later in the second half, and really help lift the Impact's offensive. Unfortunately, a 3-on-1 for the Impact , at the 86th minute was poorly played by Justin Mapp , who shot directly at Hall. Marco Di Vaio will have a talk to him after the game for sure.

Did we tell you that Jesse Marsch was expelled from the game with a few minutes left?

A Dramatic Winning Goal that was not

Brian Ching seemed to have ended the story with a happy ending as he lobbed Troy Perkins to give the Dynamo the win. After celebrations and drama, the goal was recalled as the ex-Montreal Impact player was called for offside.
