Montreal Impact Trounced By Expansion Los Angeles FC 3-5

The expansion Los Angles football club was in a punishing mood when they met Montreal Impact last Saturday. This win by Los Angeles FC meant that they have won two games in a row now. They beat the Montreal Impact 5 to 3 in a thrilling game that saw Expansion team score four goals in the second half.

An 83rd-minute penalty kick by Carlos Vela sealed the game for expansion Los Angeles FC team. Montreal impact was in fine form during the game and was in a commanding position with a hattrick by Ignacio Piatti. Montreal had to lose a player in the 31st minute of the game. Victor Cabrera’s tackle on Marco Urena in the penalty box earned him a straight red card from the referee. Urena could not convert this penalty kick and Montreal leads the Los Angles 2-1 at that time.

When it was Vela’s turn to take the penalty kick in the 83rd minute, he did not miss the mark like Urena and scored a shot down the middle to take his team to a 4-3 lead. In the 89th minute, Los Angeles FC’s Blessing sealed the game with the 5th goal for his team.

There was also an own goal scored by Jukka Raitala, the Impact defender.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
