Vela has goal, 2 assists as LAFC tops Montreal 4-2
LOS ANGELES (AP) --- Carlos Vela scored his league-leading 15th goal and
Tristan Blackmon got the first of his career as the Los Angeles Football Club
beat the Montreal Impact 4-2 on Friday night.
Vela's goal, a pretty easy touch after a perfect feed in from Eduard Atuesta in
the 28th minute made it 2-0. Blackmon's header off of Vela's corner in the 55th
minute made it 4-0.
It is the fifth time this season LAFC (10-1-4) has scored four goals in a game.
Vela also assisted on Latif Blessing's first goal of the season in the 31st
minute. Christian Ramirez opened the scoring in the seventh minute on a gaff by
Montreal keeper Evan Bush, who kicked a simple clearing attempt into Ramirez
and it deflected into the goal.
Tyler Miller lost his bid for a shutout when a Montreal centering past went off
LAFC defender Eddie Segura in the 70th minute. The Impact (6-6-3) added a
penalty kick by Saphir Taider in the 84th minute.
LAFC is unbeaten in six straight games overall and eight straight at home.
