The Montreal Impact were just seconds from extending their five-game winless stream as substitute Blake Smith arrived at the edge of the area.
With a shot that went through the legs of goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen in the sixth minute of stoppage time, Smith’s first-time strike gave the Impact a much needed victory, shutting out Eastern Conference leaders Sporting Kansas City, 1-0, on Saturday night at Stade Saputo. The Impact’s performance earned them the honor of SBI MLS Team of the Week.
The Impact beat out Toronto FC, the San Jose Earthquakes, and the Colorado Rapids for this week’s award.
