Gabriel Corbo and Kamara threatened from a corner kick, but goalkeeper Dordi Petrovic had to stop for the first time after a low shot from Kyoto.

Wilfried Nancy’s men opened the scoring in the 29th minute, after touching a beautiful ball from Matteo Cchoener and Kyoto. Honduras passed to Camara, who evaded John Bell’s cover before defeating Petrovich.

Schweiner was the source of his team’s second goal in the 39th minute. He stole the ball from Brandon Bay and avoided an interference from Andrew Farrell to fire Lacey LaPalainen while running. The Finn sent the ball to Quioto, who sent it into the net.

It was another Quebec who set the table for the Montreal people’s third goal. Finishing alone in the middle of the field, Piette made a very long pass from right to left and found Quioto’s foot. The latter was patient and stripped Farrell of his clothes before cheating Petrovich’s vigil.

Goalkeeper James Bantames, another Quebec player, entered the match in the second half thanks to a few good saves and rewarded with another goal during injury time.
