WASHINGTON -- It is difficult to know exactly what to expect from the Montreal Impact these days. On Saturday night, the team that beat Eastern Conference powerhouse Sporting Kansas City a week ago was nowhere in sight against the worst team in MLS. Substitute Conor Doyle chipped home his first career goal in the 68th minute to break a tie score and eventually lift D.C. United to a 3-1 victory over the Impact at RFK Stadium. A chance to take sole possession of first place in the conference, against a team that had scored fewer goals (10) all season than Montreals leading scorer, Marco Di Vaio (11), escaped the Impact. That result could prove costly over the seasons final 13 games. "Our reaction from their second goal was poor," Di Vaio said. "Theres no other way to describe it. I think we always need to be honest with ourselves when things dont go well. The way that we reacted we didnt deserve to get back into the game. It was like we were hoping." United, which entered the game with just 10 standings points, had scored two goals in a game just once all season and had yet to score three. It took a strong effort from keeper Troy Perkins to keep D.C. from more. He faced nine shots on target while his teammates managed just five. Montreal, with 21 games played, would have leapfrogged into first place in the standings after Sporting KCs 3-2 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday. Instead the Impact remain in third place with a 10-6-5 record and 35 points. Over the last nine games Montreals record is a mediocre 2-4-3. The Impact shook off a shaky start when defender Jeb Brovsky recorded his own first career goal early in the second half to level the game. That tally in the 52nd minute, a clinical finish on a give-and-go with teammate Davy Arnaud, beat a diving Joe Willis in net. The right-footed shot nestled in the left corner and gave Montreal needed life. "But I would have traded that goal for three points," Brovsky said. "Hell, I would have traded it for one point. Im happy that I got my first goal, but that goal didnt get us any closer to the playoffs." The Impacts effort faltered again. With 22 minutes to play before injury time, Uniteds James Riley got off a cross into the box. Doyle was ineffectively marked by Montreal defender Hassoun Camara and he used his right foot to deflect the ball past Perkins for the eventual game-winner. "The way the second goal comes is too easy," said Perkins, who was playing against his former team. "Its an easy ball in and the guy is by himself. Thats happened to us too many times now. And the reaction was not good -- as though too many guys quit." Luis Silva had scored the games first goal in the 19th minute. A cross from Uniteds Nick DeLeon deflected off a Montreal player and eventually landed at Silvas feet. Impact defender Dennis Iapichino had his back to Silva at the top of the box and struggled to stay in front. Instead, he effectively created a screen. Silvas shot flashed past a diving Perkins and smacked off the left post and in. With Montreal desperately pushing forward to tie the game late, D.C. countered with a 2-on-0 against a helpless Perkins. Jared Jeffrey sent the crowd of 12,354 home happy when he tapped home a pass from Doyle. Several dozen Impact supporters in the end zone seats could only groan as rain poured down upon them. "I dont care who youre playing," Di Vaio said. "You have to have 11 guys who are up for it and ready to grind out a result." Cheap Hawks Jerseys For Sale Wholesale Hawks Jerseys

Im looking forward to it. Its going to be a lot of skating. Its going to be kind of intense because sometimes as a skater you can pick what you like in a course and stick to that. But in this we have to get outside of our comfort zone. It will force me to skate and compete. I like that challenge. Its a good format.Malto said itll be like four different mini-skate parks. One section will be all hand rails and flat bars, one section will be gaps where skaters will do flip tricks and jumping down ramps and over sets of stairs, annother section will be a technical section with ledges where skaters can flip in and out, and the last section will be a big bowl.ddddddddddddMalto described it as more of a jam format, a little more open. Youll basically be put on each section for three minutes at a time, skate and flow and see what you come up with. Theres a little more room for failure but more room for excitement.Malto filmed a course preview with GoPro cameras on Wednesday.Its really well-built, he said. When I was skating I was thinking, `This is going to be a fun event. Sometimes when you step into these courses its like, `This is going to be a long weekend. But Im looking forward to it.Title sponsor Mountain Dew enlisted The Enthusiast Network to help create the new skate competition and a consumer festival.
