Rochester started the season with 5 consecutive wins (all away from home), but have since drawn the next 6 (3 away, 3 home - meaning they are yet to win at PAETEC Park).

Impact match report:

Press release: June 24, 2006

Defender Gabriel Gervais became the 7th Impact player to reach the 10,000 career minutes played mark with the Impact. Defender Mauricio Vincello reached the 5,000 career minutes played mark with the Impact.

This was Impact midfielder Kirk Wilson’s first game against his former team. Wilson played started a second consecutive game with Montreal.

Midfielder Zé Roberto played his 100th career game with the Impact. He is the 10th Impact player to reach this mark.

Both teams will square off again this Wednesday, at Claude-Robillard Sports Complex, in Montreal (7:30 pm, RDS, CJAD 800, Sport Plus XM-172).


16th minute – On a Rochester’s corner kick sequence, Rhinos forward Charles Gbeke deflected the ball with the head just to the right of the Montreal Impact net.

36th minute – At the penalty point, Impact forward Mauro Biello accepted a centering pass from defender Mauricio Vincello from the left wing. Biello’s high shot went wide, to the left of Rhinos goalkeeper Scott Vallow.

45th minute – Impact midfielder Zé Roberto headed a centering pass from Adam Braz but Rhinos goalkeeper Scott Vallow made the save.

84th minute – Montreal Impact forward Mauro Biello took a good shot from the top of the box but Rhinos goalkeeper Scott Vallow made a diving save to his right. Impact midfielder Zé Roberto jumped on the rebound, but his shot sailed over the net.

87th minute – After receiving a pass from midfielder Lars Lyssand, Impact forward Joel Bailey, who was subbed into the game at the 79th minute, went in alone on Vallow and beat him, swerving around him on his right, but his weak shot was stopped on the goal line by Rhinos defender Scott Palguta.



“We played a good game tonight. We had a lot of chances but you have to put one of those in the net to win the game. They have a good team so it’s satisfying to get a point on their field.”


“We played a very good game. We were the better team on the field by far. We had good possession of the ball in the first half. Then, in the second half they picked up their game but we were solid defensively. In general, it’s an excellent performance and we hope to build on that game to win against them at home on Wednesday.”


“We dominated the team that's in first place in the standings but it’s unfortunate to come back home without the three points. It was our first game on their field so it’s fine, especially considering we had the best scoring chances. We moved the ball around well but we felt the fatigue in the second half. ”
