[CONCACAF CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Wednesday] In a Concacaf matchup of MLS teams, Montreal went with its stars, and they proved to be the difference. Marco Di Vaio scored from an Ignacio Piattiassist to give the Impact, mired at the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference, a narrow 1-0 victory over rival New York in a Concacaf Champions League group match Wednesday. The Red Bulls sat out all but a few of their regulars but the Impact went with a stronger lineup and reaped the rewards.

Mad Dog and Fighting Pig find home in MLS -- in a good way, of course

"We talked about trying to win the U.S. Open Cup, Supporters' Shield and MLS Cup. This is one step, and we've got two things more that we're trying to accomplish, but it feels good. We're trying to do something special, and we have the quality here that we think can do it."

-- The Seattle Sounders' Clint Dempsey, who scored their second goal in Tuesday's 3-1 U.S. Open Cup final win over Philadelphia. The Sounders now aim to win the MLS regular season title (Supporters' Shield ) and their first MLS Cup. (Sporting News)
