The Montreal Impact U21 team played its first Canadian Soccer League game at the Centre Sportif St Jean Vianney in RDP. It was a well-played and physical game against the York Region Shooters. It was a good start for the Impact U21 Academy team but could only muster a tie. The best chances came from defender Maxime Tissot and forward Victor Ndiaye of the Impact but found a strong York goalkeeper. The Impact goalkeeper Jason Beaulieu also looked very solid between the posts. Due to some injuries to the game, Eduardo Sebrango had to come in and give a helping hand to the squad.

Montreal Impact Lineup:

GK- Jason Beaulieu; D - Karl W. Ouimette, Amine Meftouh (Francesco Augustin 65'), Kai Morton, Hugo Lapointe-Senecal; M - Wandrille Lefevre, Maxim Tissot, Dominique Morin, Victor Ndiaye; F- Eduardo Sebrango; Messoudi Zakaria (Stefan Vuckovic 58')

about the game

We were a little disappointed with the result, simply because we came here to get the three points.We had fewer options in the final third as we are missing some offensive players. However, this was a good game for us to start the season. York is a good team, one that challenges for the title every year, so we were able to see how we matched up with a top team.

about Eduardo Sebrango

Having Eduardo here is a bonus for our guys.They get to share the same field with a pro, which gives them some confidence and he is a true life example of what it takes to make it to the next level. It's also a good chance for him to get more playing time. He'll show up to the first team's next practice a little sharper. It's a win for both of us.

about Stefan Vukovic

We liked what we saw from Stefan.This contract is a nice balance for both sides, to see how he fits in here and to see if he likes it here as well. After the three months, we will revisit things then.

Montreal Impact Wandrille Lefevre

"We are pleased with the way things went overall, despite wanting to win, as we battled the whole game," said Lefevre. "We reacted well against a team that plays a physical style. We stayed focused and remained in the game and gave ourselves a chance to win."

Stefan Vuckovic signs with the Impact U21

Former TFC Academy forward Stefan Vuckovic, trialist with the Impact U21, signed a three-month contract with the club. As per club policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. He led the Canadian Soccer League in scoring last year with 18 goals.

The Impact's U21 team will play its second game in the CSL at the Centre Sportif St Jean De Vianney, on Sunday, May 20 at 2pm, against the St. Catharines Roma Wolves. The game is open to the public and admission is free.
