MONTREAL – Fullback Hassoun Camara scored his first goal of the season to lead the Montreal Impact to a 2-0 victory over the visiting Columbus Crew on Saturday in Major League Soccer action.

Kyle Bekker also scored in the 86th minute for Montreal (3-2-0).

Goalkeeper Evan Bush, not challenged often, made just one save for his second clean sheet of the year.

Columbus (0-3-2) was kept off the scoresheet for the second time this season. Gregg Berhalter’s men have scored just three goals in their first five games of the MLS season.

The Impact scored for the first time in three matches, to the delight of the 22,053 fans at Olympic Stadium. Montreal was shut out in its last two encounters – road losses against Dallas and Seattle.

Camara, playing in his third consecutive match since the injury to Ambroise Oyongo, headed home for Montreal in the 48th minute off a Lucas Ontivero corner kick.

The 32-year-old climbed above defender Harrison Afful and headed the ball cleanly into the corner of the net from about eight yards out – the home side’s first goal off a set piece this year.
