    Montreal Impact's Marco Di Vaio left, and Toronto FC's Richard Eckersley vie for possession of the ball during the second half.

    Patrice Bernier and Marco Di Vaio scored first-half goals and the Impact beat Toronto FC, 2-1, Saturday in Montreal to improve to 3-0.

    The Impact, who opened with wins in Seattle and Portland to match their total road victories last year, became the first Major League Soccer team to win three games this season.

    Bernier scored 34 minutes in after Toronto’s Ashtone Morgan fouled Andres Romero in the penalty area. Bernier, Montreal’s MVP last season, hesitated on his penalty kick and sent Reds goalkeeper Joe Bendik diving to his right before putting the ball into an open right side.


    Di Vaio made it 2-0 just before the half. Davy Arnaud sent a ball forward for Di Vaio, who scooted around Bendik to score.
