Just 6' in, the FIre heated it up as Gaitan took one out of the air from inside the penalty box testing GK Bush and many shots to follow as Nikolic's attempt hit the post back post to Sapong and his attempt from inside the goal box was cleared off the goal line. It was Gaitan again as McCarty fed him at 67' and he then put it through to Nicolic and his bending go on goal was saved by Bush. They had the better of the play for the 2nd half but a late goal at 83' spelt defeat at the feet of the Impact as a Browne cross was deflected past the netminder, 1-0 Montreal.

Three games in a week, 2 wins then an anticlimactic tie with the same side they tied on opening day at Yankee Stadium, now it was 1-1 with Orlando City SC. A pair of adjustments from the last starting XI were Castellanos & Matarrita from Tajouri-Schardi & Ben Sweat. OC came out well as they tried for the early lead and Sands stymied an early change with a great challange on Akindele just at the 8' but that would not last. The next push forward for Saw Nani hit the bottom 90 beating Johnson for the first strike of the game.
