Marsch urges Montreal Impact to kick on after maiden MLS victory

MLS expansion franchise Montreal Impact opened their winning account on the weekend with a spirited 2-1 victory over Canadian rivals Toronto FC.

The Impact took a two-goal lead through Sinisa Ubiparipovic and rookie Andrew Wenger before Danny Koevermans pulled one back for ten-man Toronto who saw Logan Emory sent off with about 25 minutes remaining.

Montreal's head coach Jesse Marsch was delighted to see his side produce a winning result in their sixth match but hopes that they can kick on and add to the triumph.

"It's a big moment and a big win for the club, for the fans, for the city and for the players," said Marsch. "But the reality is that the work is just getting started.

"I think we're all pleased and happy and excited to get to this moment. But our players are so well grounded that they understand that it's about this whole process and pushing things along. So now let's continue to move forward."
