Montreal concedes a late goal and settles for a 2-2 draw against Orlando City

Orlando would use the equalizer to generate momentum as the match headed towards halftime, controlling more possession and creating several half-chances.

Montreal appeared to regain their composure after the break and started the second half on the front foot, forcing a crucial low hand save from Pedro Gallese after just five minutes.

Despite the pressure, Montreal struggled to score until just two minutes before the end. On the counter-attack, substitute Sunusi Ibrahim fired a powerful shot that forced a save from Gallese, which rebounded straight into Lassiter’s path, giving him a wide open net and his second goal in as many games.

With eight minutes of extra time, Orlando went to work to find the equalizer and immediately hit pay dirt. A low cross from Martin Ojeda found Angulo at the back post, bringing the game back to level.


Both teams return to action next Saturday (April 27) when Montreal travels to Columbus to take on former head coach Wilfried Nancy and the Crew, while Orlando returns home to host Toronto FC.
