Union put an end to Impact’s shutout streak, 3-game unbeaten run

Cory Burke and Jamiro Monteiro each scored to help the Philadelphia beat the Montreal Impact 3-0 on Saturday for the Union’s fourth win in their last five games.

Burke stole a lazy pass near midfield and then took a few dribbles before blasting a roller from outside the area just inside the far post to give Philadelphia (4-3-1) a 1-0 lead in the 14th minute.

Monteiro, a 25-year old on loan from FC Metz through June, converted from the spot in the 45th for his first MLS goal after Jack Elliott drew a foul conceded by Zakaria Diallo.

Alejandro Bedoya tapped in an empty-netter to cap the scoring 57th minute.

Philadelphia’s Kai Wagner was shown a straight red card, after video review, in the 90th minute.

Montreal will remain on the road and visit New England Revolution on April 24 at 7:30 p.m. ET.
