MOST COMMENTED

[AMWAY CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIP] The Montreal Impact brushed aside criticism that it did not take the Amway Canadian Championship seriously with a 6-0 drubbing of Toronto FC at Stade Saputo Wednesday night that moved it into the final against the Vancouver Whitecaps with a 6-2 aggregate win. Italian forward Marco Di Vaio came off the bench to led Montreal with two goals and two assists.

"Today was a game about pride and character," said midfielder Patrice Bernier. "We answered the critics from last week and we played a game that the fans will remember for a long time."

Daniele Paponi, Andrew Wenger, Justin Mapp and Andres Romero also scored in the win.

Di Vaio didn't come on until the 37th minute when he replaced the injured Paponi and he put Montreal ahead 3-0 with a goal in the 44th minute.

Besides Paponi (hamstring injury), Davy Arnaud (concussion-like symptoms) was also forced to leave the game in the second half.

Vancouver won 2-0 at home to complete its sweep of the NASL's FC Edmonton.

    Perhaps the Ultras displays and silence on Saturday game did send a strong message to the ownership and the players, to take the Voyageurs Cup seriously. It was a great franchise win, and the crowd was energized to see success against Toronto,
