Portland Timbers 1-2 Montreal Impact: Candians nick away win

The Montreal Impact won in JELD-WEN Field to start the 2013 season off with two impressive road victories. The 2-1 result over the Portland Timbers came on the heels of a win against Sounders FC in Seattle. Montreal only won twice away in the entire 2012 season.

Montreal went ahead a half hour into the Portland match. An Andrea Pisanu free kick bounced around the box, and a blocked Matteo Ferrari shot popped up. Fullback Hassoun Camara pulled off a bycicle kick that beat Donovan Ricketts.

On the hour mark, the Impact doubled the lead. Felipe Martins won the ball back in midfield and started a move that eventually found Andrés Romero on the right. Romero ran to the end line and cut the ball back in front of goal, where Felipe turned it in at the near post.

The Timbers pulled one back with 10 minutes remaining in the match. Ben Zemanski drilled a cross into the area on the half volley, and Ryan Johnson snuck in front of Camara to poke the ball into the net with the bottom of his cleat.
