Traditionally, the twelve days of Christmas begin at, well, Christmas, or the next day. But Impact Media, like a kid presented with an Advent calendar, has no patience.
We thus give you our countdown of the Impact’s top twelve on-field moments in this unforgettable 2016 season.
And a partridge in a pear tree, of course.
3. September 28, 2016: Montreal 3-1 San Jose – Evan Bush makes more than a save
With a win, the Impact can hold on to fifth place in the Eastern Conference. The score, 87 minutes in, is 2-1 for Montreal, and Chris Wondolowski is waiting to take a penalty kick against Evan Bush.
And Bush saves it.
This miraculous save is simply massive for the Bleu-blanc-noir, which later makes it 3-1 through Johan Venegas. The team thus maintains a five-point lead over the Eastern Conference’s non-playoff teams. Simply massive.
Evan Bush save
Stay tuned until December 24 for the rest of IMFC’s twelve days of Christmas!
