Heinemann's History Against Montreal

By Cody Sharrett

Few players have yet to make history against MLS's expansion Montreal Impact. However, Crew striker Tommy Heinemann holds a special memory of playing against the French-Canadian side.

While playing for the Carolina Railhawks in 2010, the St. Louis native sent the then-NASL Impact packing in the semifinals of the USSF Division 2 playoffs with a series-winning strike in the 89th minute of the second leg to put the Railhawks ahead 2-1 on aggregate.

The Crew hopes some of Heinemann's magic can rub off on his teammates as the Crew welcome the Impact to Columbus for First Kick 2012.
