MONTREAL -- The Canadian Soccer Association has suspended Montreal forward Roberto Brown for the Impact's next two Nutrilite Championship games after he struck a Toronto FC player in the face.

Brown was given a red card in the 35th minute of Wednesday's tournament-opening 2-0 loss to Toronto FC after hitting opposition defender Nick Garcia in the face. Garcia was helped to the dressing room, with the team later saying he would be fine.

The Impact suspended Brown indefinitely on Friday, pending the release of the CSA's discipline report.

Brown will miss Montreal's next two Nutrilite Championship games, Wednesday against the Whitecaps in Vancouver and May 12 against Toronto FC in Vancouver. The Impact has not said whether he will be permitted to play in their USSF Division 2 game Saturday against the NSC Minnesota Stars.

The 32-year-old Brown scored seven goals in 25 games last season, and was named most valuable player of the final series against the Vancouver Whitecaps as the Impact won its third United Soccer Leagues title.

He is scoreless in two games this season, and did not play in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Puerto Rico Islanders.

The CSA also announced Monday that the first goal scored in Toronto's victory has been awarded to Ty Harden. The goal was originally credited to Dwayne De Rosario.
