Montreal Impact wins USL-1 title

BY foxsports • October 18, 2009

The Montreal Impact became the third club in league history to win a third league championship, downing the defending champion Vancouver Whitecaps 6-3 on aggregate in the USL First Division Championship series with a 3-1 victory in the second leg at Stade Saputo Saturday before a sold out crowd of over 13,000.

The first team to post a perfect record in the postseason since the 1999 Minnesota Thunder, the Impact started their sixth win in succession with a game-changing play on the half hour mark when a penalty and Vancouver send-off gave the Impact a two-goal series lead and a man advantage.
