Toronto shuts out Montreal
Last-place Toronto (2-10-2), which earned its first road victory and matched its total of MLS away wins from last season, blew two-goal leads and settled for draws in its previous two games. But the defense held this time, and Toronto improved to 2-1-2 in its past five matches.
The Impact (5-9-3) lost at Saputo Stadium for the first time in three games since moving back to the expanded facility after starting the season indoors at Olympic Stadium. The loss spoiled the debut of Montreal's Marco Di Vaio, the club's first designated player.
The former Bologna striker played 55 minutes for the Impact, who trailed 1-0 after Frings scored on a free kick in the 52nd minute. Johnson scored in the 72nd, and Koevermans 6 minutes later.
