Rommel Koyoto shone with his own light on Wednesday to lead Montreal with a 2-4 away win over Orlando City at his own pace, so the Canadian team is once again addicted to the battle for the MLS playoffs.
Little by little, the Honduran striker is regaining his form, at the Exploria stadium, validating his rise by appearing as a starter and determining the victory of his club with one goal and two assists.
After the first quarter of the match, the Montreal club began to reach the goal of Peruvian Pedro Galeese. In the 17th minute, Kyoto sent a cross from the left to Canadian midfielder Matthew Choener to connect the ball with his right foot to open the scoring.
Things improved for the Quebec team and things got worse for Orlando in the 35th minute when Portuguese referee Nani sent off a double yellow card after a foul on Djurji Mihajlovic.
Two minutes later, Quioto brilliantly scored the second goal for Montreal. Djorji Mihajlovic gave him a good filtered pass and the Honduran identified the left hand in hand position with goalkeeper Galezi.
Despite being with one player less on the field, Orlando City responded and even managed to match. Swedish defender Robin Jansson scored in the 40th minute and Brazilian Ruan Gregorio Teixeira in the 63rd minute, with a 2-2 draw.
It looked like the “lions” could dominate the match, but Finnish striker Lasse Lapalainen finished off the starting point with his left foot after receiving fresh help from Rommel Koyoto to put things 2-3.
A few seconds after entering the field, Al-Senussi Ibrahim, in the 80th minute, briefly appeared in the area to score the fourth goal of the visit and close the match.
Romell Quioto added his fourth goal this season with the Montreal club, as he participated in 13 games with a total of 763 minutes. El Cracow, who was absent for a month due to injury, was named player of the match.
“El Romántico” has been showing up at key moments since the beginning of October, as he will return to the Honduran national team where he was not at his best physical and footballing in September.
With this victory, Montreal FC moved to sixth place in the Eastern Province standings with 34 points, tied with DC United led by Andy Najjar.
