CF Montreal: Offensive show | The Journal of Montreal

The two sides traded five goals in the first half alone and the visitors scored three of them. Djordje Mihailovic first scored a double. His nets, respectively in the 17th and 41st minute, each time brought the two opponents level.

Kei Kamara then took advantage of stoppage time in the first half to shake off the ropes for the first time in a CF Montreal uniform. The striker took advantage of a perfect delivery from Victor Wanyama, who had also been an accomplice to one of Mihailovic’s successes, to fire a low shot that deceived the vigilance of goalkeeper Alec Kann.

Kamara, who also had amassed an assist on one of his American teammate’s nets, had not said his last word. He combined his efforts with those of Joaquin Torres in the 67th minute and got his second assist when the Argentinian gently pushed the ball into the opposing net.

defensive troubles

However, a cloud overshadowed the brilliant offensive performance of CF Montreal. Defensively, Wilfried Nancy’s troops were put to the test and folded several times.

Both goalkeeper Sebastian Breza and the entire defensive group looked bad, first on Brandon Vazquez’s net in the 12th minute, then on the crowd favorites’ second net eight minutes later.

Once again, Vazquez led the attack. While trying to reach a teammate, his relay hit Alistair Johnston and the ball went under Breza. Luciano Acosta, on a penalty shot in the 61st minute, was the other scorer for his team.

There was an air of déjà vu at the end of the match. With a slender one-goal lead, CF Montreal defended their rivals’ many attacks, but in the most crucial moments, the Montreal organization held on to claim their first-ever win of the season, their fifth duel.
