For years, Kei Kamara has been having a good time against CF Montreal. On Saturday, he did so in his colors in the 4-3 win over FC Cincinnati.
The 37-year-old scored his first goal for Bleu-Blanc-Noir as well as getting an assist and setting the match-winning goal to help CF Montreal take their first win of the season.
Djorge Mihajlovic scored his first double in his career, Joaquin Torres scored his first goal of the year and Victor Wanyama scored assists.
This victory did not come easily. Montreal had two deficits and Cincinnati equalized before eventually scoring the winning goal.
At the slow end of the game we were afraid to live the same scenario as two weeks ago in Atlanta, but this time, we held onto a one goal difference despite a faltering defense.
We conceded the opposite result in the first half with five goals. The two teams replaced the kick with the hit with the successes of Brandon Vazquez (12th minute) and an own goal from Alistair Johnston, who pushed a shot from Vazquez to his own (20).
Between the two, Mihajlovic scored his first two goals on the 17th. He did it again in the 41st minute after a good recovery from Wanyama, who fed Kamara.
He opened his counter in overtime (45+1) to allow his team to return to the locker room beforehand.
A mistake by Rudi Camacho on the hour mark, however, allowed Luciano Acosta to reset the counters by making them from 3 to 3.
The hero of the day, Camara, with a beautiful climb on the right, came to save the day with a cross of the ball, which deviated from goalkeeper Alec Kane to find himself at the foot of Joaquin Torres, who threaded the needle.
Thus, FC Montreal just scored seven goals in two games on opposite lawns, which is good news.
However, he allowed six, which is the least of the good news because the defensive game was tough on Saturday against a team that was not good by the way.
Sebastian Brezza had another tough outing. He seemed slow to score two of Cincinnati’s three goals and the defenders didn’t support him well.
It will also be necessary to question the use of Lacey LaPalainen and Alistair Johnston as pliers, those who are not at their best in this situation, undermining the defensive game.
