Rewind: Crew at Impact

By Cody Sharrett

APRIL 14: Impact 1 - Crew 1

After a snowstorm-induced delay, the Crew and Impact finally met on the pitch at Stade Saputo on Sunday, April 14. Montreal striker Marco Di Vaio opened the scoring in the 68th minute, firing a long-distance shot past an outstretched Andy Gruenebaum to give his team the lead. Di Vaio's class would be matched just four minutes later when Crew forward Dominic Oduro blasted a stunning, left-footed volley to the far post and by Impact 'keeper Troy Perkins to level the two sides. The match remained deadlocked for the next 18 minutes as the Crew earned its first point in Montreal.
