MONTREAL -- A match against the last-place Montreal Impact was exactly what Toronto FC needed to get out of its funk. Wilson Ramos Jersey . Toronto scored early and never looked back, beating the rival Impact 2-0 at Saputo Stadium on Saturday for their first win in five league games, and first road win since April. TFC manager Ryan Nelsen, whose team was coming off back-to-back losses against Sporting KC and D.C. United, knows just how important a win over a rival city can be. "Ive been on the wrong end of a few, and they dont feel good," said Nelsen. "It was nice to come into Montreal and get a win. Theyre a bit of a wounded animal, and they have some really dangerous players. They have a very good team and a very good coach who knows the league well. "Were not celebrating -- we didnt just win the Champions League. Well tick the box, and well move on." An early strike by Gilberto was all Toronto needed to cruise to victory on Saturday, before Luke Moore added an insurance goal for the visitors in the second half. With the win, TFC (8-7-5) leapfrogged the New England Revolution and now sit third in the Eastern Conference standings. The Impact (3-13-5), meanwhile, have lost a franchise-high six games in a row. Theyve been in the Eastern Conference basement for four months. Playing against the team they beat in the Amway Canadian Championship in early June did not give Montreal that much-needed spark. Instead, the Impact chased much of the ball in the first half, and went to the dressing room at the interval without a shot on target. Montreal made fewer passes, won fewer duels and had less possession than TFC throughout the game. Montreals three yellow cards were the product of late and frustrated tackles. "I thought we would come out with more fire," said Impact captain Patrice Bernier. "Its a derby, and youre playing TFC. They were in a bad spell, and were in a bad spell. We lost a lot of the battles, and we found our feet too late." Montreal put up more of a fight in the second half, but none of its four shots on target could beat goalkeeper Joseph Bendik. "I understand that not everybody understands the derby, but some guys have been here for three years," added Bernier. "You know how these games are intense and aggressive. Its frustrating and its difficult." Gilberto scored in the 11th minute when his shot from inside the 18-yard box rang off the crossbar and landed a foot across the goal-line. Impact goalie Troy Perkins smothered the ball, but the linesman confirmed it was a good goal. Perkins got the start in net, his first match since July 12 when a defensive mistake in the games final minute handed Sporting Kansas City the road victory. Backup keeper Evan Bush started between the uprights in the Impacts following three games -- all losses. Moore doubled Torontos lead in the 54th minute, beating Perkins to a loose ball in front of the net for an easy tap-in. U.S. international Michael Bradley got the play going when his stunning through ball from deep in his own half found a streaking Dominic Oduro. Impact defender Krzysztof Krol blocked Oduros shot, but the ball fell right into Moores path. "There was a little bit of space, and we all know that Dominics strength is his ability to run and get in behind guys," said the playmaker Bradley. "He did a great job of setting the guy up and made it a really easy decision for me. The movement was good. That was the goal that finished off the game at that point." Star striker Jermain Defoe missed the game with a possible sports hernia he may have sustained during Torontos midweek clash with D.C. United. "Hes been feeling his groin for a few weeks now," said Nelsen. "Remember, hes been going for over a year, pushing on. Its just to get these little niggles of your body, being worn down. Hopefully its nothing too bad, nothing too major." The former Tottenham Hotspur forward, acquired by TFC in January, will undergo a scan on Sunday to determine the severity of the injury. Defoe will likely miss this Wednesdays Major League Soccer all-star game. But Toronto didnt need its leading goal scorer on Saturday, relying on its two other forwards Gilberto and Moore for the goals. "In some ways, we were a bit desperate tonight," said Bradley, who finished the game with an assist and two shots on target. "After two games in a row, where for different reasons we didnt walk off the field with the results that we wanted, we really wanted to make sure that we gave a good performance tonight. The performance reflected that." This was Montreals first game since a midweek management shuffle that saw sporting director Nick De Santis moved to an administrative role. De Santiss demotion gave manager Frank Klopas full control of the squad. On Saturday, Klopas took full responsibility for the loss against Toronto. "At the end of the day, its tough because I know we put a lot into it," he said. "We were very flat. Im ready to do whats in the best interest of the club. Just from an energy standpoint, we didnt do enough. We did too much, we were tired, the heat - those are all excuses." Of the 16,665 people in attendance at Saputo Stadium on Saturday, several hundred donned red and white TFC jerseys and made a lot of noise throughout the match. "The support was absolutely amazing," said Nelsen. "If theyve travelled up from Toronto -- or wherever theyve come from -- all the guys and the coaching staff are so appreciative of what they did and they really made themselves heard. When you play on a Wednesday, in hot conditions, that really helps." Montreal plays its first CONCACAF Champions League match against El Salvadors FAS at home on Tuesday. Notes: Dilly Duka, 24, acquired from the Chicago Fire in exchange for Sanna Nyassi on Tuesday, came on as a substitute in the 74th minute. Forward Anthony Jackson-Hammel, who will be 21 on Sunday, made his first appearance with the Impact since signing a professional contract on Friday. The last time these two clubs faced each other, Montreal recorded a 1-0 victory at home to repeat as winners of the Amway Canadian Championship. Evan Longoria Jersey . Colton Sissons also scored for Milwaukee (19-12-Cool, which went ahead with a two-goal third period. Wade MacLeod and Greg McKegg replied for Toronto (23-12-4). Matt Duffy Jersey .

The 18-time champions, who havent won the title since 1990, moved two points behind Arsenal after the leaders were stunned 6-3 at Manchester City on Saturday. Defending champion Manchester United trails Arsenal by 10 points after winning 3-0 at Aston Villa to avoid a third successive league loss.SHIMA, Japan - Morgan Pressel shot a 5-under 67 on Friday in the Mizuno Classic to take a one-stroke lead over 51-year-old Laura Davies and Chella Choi.Pressel had five birdies at Kintetsu Kashikojima.It was tough out there with the winds. Especially early, some of those holes played really tough, Pressel said. I didnt get myself in a lot of trouble and when I did I made a good putt for par. I definitely putted well today and I think thats why I ended up at 5 under.The American won the last of her two LPGA Tour titles in 2008.It would mean the world, Pressel said. I havent had the best year, but I feel like I have been playing better recently, certainly in the other few events I played here in Asia. I feel like I can play well the rest of this week and the next two closing events and then enjoy the off-season.Davies won the last of her 20 LPGA Tour titles in 2001. The Englishwoman also has 45 victories on the Laadies European Tour. Drew Smyly Jersey. I still think Im good enough, Davies said. I still think I can win tournaments and, while I still think I can win, Im still going to play. The only thing holding me back is putting and thats what I believe and thats why I keep going. The fact that Im 51 is irrelevant really. If you can walk, you can play golf.Choi, from South Korea, birdied four of the last seven holes.I like this course, Choi said. I played good last year so I have a good thing here. A lot of people like me and are cheering. The golf course is not too far. You just have to focus on each shot.Japans Kotono Kozuma was two strokes back at 69 along with South Koreans Ilhee Lee and Mi Hyang Lee and Thailands Pornanong Phatlam.Second-ranked Stacy Lewis, the 2012 winner, was at 70 in a group that included Australias Karrie Webb and Japans Sakura Yokomine.
