[AMWAY CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIP] The Montreal Impact twice came back from a goal down to tie the Vancouver Whitecaps, 2-2, and win the Amway Canadian Championship on away goals. The title will send the Impact to the Concacaf Champions League for the first since 2008-09 when it reached the semifinals as a minor-league team. Vancouver, on the other hand, remains the only MLS Canadian club not to win the domestic title.

Hassoun Camara's header off a Justin Mapp corner kick in the 84th minute tied the aggregate score at 2-2 and silenced the crowd at BC Place.

The 'Caps opened the scoring on Camilo's free kick from 35 yards after four minutes but paid the price for not putting the game away in the first half.

Felipe evened the score in the 49th minute to set off an exciting second half that saw Daigo Kobayashi put Vancouver back ahead 20 minutes later.

Amway Canadian Championship winners:
2008: Montreal Impact
2009: Toronto FC
2010: Toronto FC
2011: Toronto FC
2012: Toronto FC
2013: Montreal Impact

    Amway doesn't have the ethical or moral authority to be in this event, it is a scam. Google "Stop The Amway Tool Scam Wordpress" for more information, and forward this to every non-Distributor/IBO you know, so they don't get scammed.
