Revolution Vs. Impact Update: Sanna Nyassi's Volley Puts Montreal Ahead 2-1

The New England Revolution brought their match against the Montreal Impact level just before halftime, but the home side wouldn't let it lie, regaining the lead in the second half. Sanna Nyassi's emphatic volley put his team ahead 2-1 in the 68th minute.

The play began with a Felipe shot that Matt Reis saved. The rebound spilled out to the left, where Kevin Alston attempted to corral it. Instead, he only managed to lose the ball and pull himself out of position, allowing Justin Mapp free reign down the left flank. The wily MLS vet picked his head up and played an excellent far post cross to a waiting and unmarked Nyassi, who drilled a low volley just inside his near post to beat Reis and put his team ahead.

The goal came after Jay Heaps made an interesting decision to replace defensive midfielder Clyde Simms with striker Blake Brettschneider, apparently to try and conjure up a winner. Now the Revs will be looking for another equalizer.
