Vancouver Whitecaps 2, Montreal Impact 1 | 2018 MLS Match Recap

Newcomer Kei Kamara bagged his first strike with his new club and Homegrown phenom Alphonso Davies racked up a goal and an assist as the Vancouver Whitecaps edged the Montreal Impact 2-1 at BC Place in a cross-Canadian clash on opening day of the 2018 MLS season. 
Featuring a range of new faces in their starting XIs, the two sides were evenly matched in a scoreless first half. Then the home side sparked to life with two goals in eight minutes shortly after the passage of the hour mark.
First Davies served in an inviting near-post service from the left wing for Kamara to finish with a snapped header off the woodwork, and then it was Davies' turn, as the teenager bagged his first goal in MLS play by bundling home a low cross from Cristian Techera. 
The Impact's veteran Italian striker Matteo Mancosu headed home a pinpoint delivery from Daniel Lovitz to cut the deficit and set up a tense finish, but the 'Caps held on for the win.
