Montreal Impact 1, Toronto FC 0 | 2018 MLS Match Recap

Toronto FC have been thriving in the CONCACAF Champions League, but remain winless in 2018 MLS play as their 401 Derby rivals the Montreal Impact knocked them off 1-0 on Sunday in front of a spirited crowd at Stade Olympique.
Impact newcomer Jeisson Vargas struck paydirt with a deflected finish past goalkeeper Alex Bono a few minutes before halftime. Despite plenty of possession and pressure from TFC down the stretch, that slim lead would hold up in the end, while Vargas saw a second strike waved off by an offside flag in the 70th minute. 
Former Toronto academy prospect Michael Petrasso made a key play to protect the lead in the final minutes, racing back to clear a Jozy Altidore effort off the line as the Reds pressed furiously for an equalizer over much of the second half.
