Preseason wrap up, new uniforms and opening day squad
MONTREAL- The 2016 preseason is finally over for the club as they return from Atlanta, Georgia. During this time they faced four clubs other than the scrimmages against the reserves and the U23's. The team also finalized the roster for opening day and revealed the new uniforms for 2016/17.
The first two matches were with our reserves and U23's. In both matches the main team came out with 3-0 victories and looked good under the new system. New signing David Goodwille scored against the reserves.
Next up the team had a quick flight over to Iceland where they played FH. On a snowy Icelandic afternoon the Impact showed that they can play in any climate. Fourth year winger Blake Smith was the hero as he scored the two goals in the match.
Five days later the team returned home for two matches. The first was against PDL side Vermont Voltage and the second was against Brazilian side Internacional. L'Impact won both matches with scores of 2-1 and 3-1. The victory against Internacional was big for Marco Di Vaio as he scored two goals. They would be his first two goals of the preseason.
Finally the club traveled to Atlanta to face NASL side Atlanta Silverbacks. The score was 3-1 in favor of the away team. Philippe Davies was the man of the match as he scored two goals. Darren Mattocks was the other scorer.
The 2016 MLS Season will be the leagues 20th anniversary. Montreal will kick off their 5th season in MLS on February 27th at Stade Saputo in Montreal. This will be Korrigan's first match in charge of us.
