The Impact game in Vermont cancelled

In the first game of the series on June 8th, at the Catalogna Soccerplexe in Lachine, the Impact blanked the Voltage 4-0.

The Impact will resume training Sunday, at 3 pm, at the Catalogna Soccerplexe in Lachine, in preparation for the team’s next match-up scheduled for Wednesday, June 22, against the Charleston Battery at the Claude-Robillard Sports Complex.

The Impact tied the Toronto Lynx 0-0 in their last game at home, June 3, in front of 9864 fans, and has yet to score a goal at home this season. Nevertheless, Montreal remains the only undefeated team in the league, with a record of 4-0-4.

The team sits presently in fourth place in the United Soccer League’s First Division standings with 16 points, 10 points behind the first place Richmond Kickers. The Kickers have played four more games than the Impact.

Forward Nicolas Lesage, originally from Trois-Rivières, has been loaned to the Laval Dynamites of the Canadian Professional Soccer League (CPSL), while goalkeeper Gerry Argento was loaned to the Laval Conquérants, a club from the Quebec Elite Soccer League. Both players remain the property of the Montreal Impact.

Lesage, a newcomer to the squad, and Argento, who completed the Impact’s goaltending trio with Greg Sutton and Andrew Olivieri, have not played a game with the Impact so far this season.

“We have a role to develop our younger players and realistically speaking, Nicolas and Gerry will have a better opportunity to play on a regular basis in Laval,” said Montreal Impact head coach Nick De Santis. “We’ll also be able to call upon them, when need be.”
