Sanna Nyassi volleyed in the winner in the 68th minute to give the Impact a 2-1 victory over the Revolution Wednesday night in Montreal.
Patrice Bernier also scored on a penalty for Montreal (7-12-3), which leapfrogged New England (6-9-4) to move into sixth place in the Eastern Conference standings.
Lee Nguyen’s strike for New England was ruled an own goal, but it’s likely the former Vancouver Whitecap will be credited with his fourth of the season.
New England was coming off a 1-0 loss to Toronto FC and has never won a game in Canada, going 0-1 in Vancouver and 0-2-4 in Toronto.
The Impact, now 6-3-2 at home, won for only the second time in their last six games.
As play carried on after a free kick, Justin Mapp crossed the ball to the far post where Nyassi volleyed inside the near post for his third goal of the season.
The Impact got the early lead on Bernier’s 28th-minute penalty kick when Nyassi went down in the area after a light shove from Chris Tierney. Referee Fotis Bazakos made Bernier take the kick three times due to irregularities, and Bernier scored each time.
It was Bernier’s sixth of the season and his fourth from the penalty spot.
New England equalized in the 44th minute, as Nguyen’s long blast beat goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, bounced off the crossbar, and went in off Rickett’s foot.
Bulls 1, Fire 0 — Thierry Henry scored in the 71st minute to lift the Red Bulls over Chicago in Harrison, N.J. It was Henry’s 10th goal of the season — and first since April 28, when he scored in a 1-0 win over New England.
Bill Gaudette, playing in just his second game with the Red Bulls, got the shutout without having to make a save.
Chivas USA 1, Timbers 0 — Miller Bolaños scored his first MLS goal to lift Chivas USA over Portland in Carson, Calif.
Bolaños’s goal was the 12th Chivas has scored in 18 games. It came at an opportune time against an opponent nearly even in the Western Conference standings. Chivas (6-7-5) is four points ahead of Portland.
Toronto FC 2, Rapids 1 — Newly acquired forward Andrew Wiedeman scored his first MLS goal to lift host Toronto FC over slumping Colorado.
Fullback Doneil Henry started the play on the go-ahead goal in the 68th minute. Conor Casey scored in the 23d minute for Colorado (7-12-1).
Dynamo 2, Sporting KC — Calen Carr scored twice and host Houston defeated 10-man Sporting Kansas City to extend
its unbeaten streak to five games.
The win tied Houston (8-5-7, 31 points) with the Chicago Fire for fourth place in the Eastern Conference.
Galaxy 2, Whitecaps 2 — Second-half substitute Jose Villarreal scored in the 87th minute to give Los Angeles the tie with host Vancouver. David Beckham also scored for LA in the second half as the Galaxy overcame a 2-0 deficit. Gershon Koffie and Barry Robson scored first-half goals for Vancouver.
Earthquakes 2, Dallas 1 — Marvin Chavez and Alan Gordon scored for visiting San Jose.
Jair Benitez missed a penalty kick over the net that would have tied the score for Dallas.
