Wenger relieved to open Montreal Impact account

2012 MLS SuperDraft number one pick Andrew Wenger got off the mark in goalscoring terms on the weekend and admits it was a relief.

The 21-year old forward scored his first goal for the Montreal Impact, allowing the expansion franchise to record their first MLS victory with a 2-1 home triumph over Toronto FC, and he felt a sense of respite after his 81st minute effort.

"It feels good just to get it out of the way," Wenger said.

"It's always nice to get the monkey off your back. More importantly, it just feels good to win."

But there was no rest for Wenger, who two hours after scoring off the bench, had to head back to Duke University to continue his history studies.

"I've got classes the next two days, so I'll just get through that and then look forward to coming back," Wenger added. "If anyone out there wants to write my term papers, we can arrange something."
