Montreal defeats Joe Public FC 2-0.
The group phase of the CONCACAF Champions League begun for the Montreal Impact yesterday with a 2-0 victory over Joe Public FC from Trinidad & Tobago.
Stefano Pesoli opened the score early into the first quarter on a well played corner while the timely saves of goaltender Matt Jordan kept his team ahead. Tony Donatelli doubled the score at the second minute of the second half.
The Saputo Stadium was almost half empty for this important match in the history of the club. The breeze kept some people at home as summer is now over in Canada. Some players from Trinidad & Tobago suffered the discomfort of playing with a mercury below the 10 degrees celsius mark.
Montreal, now at 1-0 (+2) in his group, will host FC Atlante from Mexico on September 24th.
