Montreal equalized on a penalty kick by Nevio Pizzolitto in the in the 82nd minute when Portland defender Quavas Kirk was called for the foul inside the box on the Impact’s Roberto Brown.

The Impact picked up its first point of the season with the tie.

Saturday replay ...

Algerian-Frenchman Mouloud Akloul paid a steep price for scoring what proved to be the winning goal in Vancouver's 1-0 win  Saturday over pointless AC Saint Louis.

The new signing, who has played for teams in France, Algeria and the United Arab Emirates, scored with his right foot off Martin Nash's corner but landed awkwardly on his trailing left foot and broke the ankle.
