A Sanna Nyassi second-half goal was enough to give Montreal Impact a well-deserved three points at home to stay up on the race in the United States Major League Soccer.

The win was at the expense of his twin brother Sainey Nyassi’s side, New England Revolution. Sainey featured just for 11 minutes in the second half, which was unlike his brother Sanna, who was up for the entire 90 minutes, according to goal.com.

Wednesday’s Eastern Conference game played at the Stade Saputo has also sent Impact ahead of New England Revolution. 

Impact’s opener was scored by Bernier at the 28th minute; New England sent in an equalizer sixteen minutes later before Sanna Nyassi could send the easterners to a glorious finish. 

The midfielder’s goal has now increased his personal tally to three on the 2012 season and gave Impact an unforgettable lead.

Montreal Impact are now ahead on 24 points leaving New England behind with 22 points, as both teams sit sixth and seventh respectively in the Eastern Conference.

Momodou Danso’s Portland Timbers lost 1-0 to Chivas USA to continue their difficult season, as they stay tied with FC Dallas for last in the West, all in Wednesday’s matches.
