Football: Kaka pots two as Orlando City routs Montreal

LOS ANGELES,(APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -8th Sept,2016) - The MLS postseason race is bringing out the best in Orlando City FC as they routed the Montreal Impact 4-1 in a one-sided battle between playoff contenders on Wednesday.

Kaka scored twice and Carlos Rivas tallied a goal and two assists for Orlando City who kept their postseason hopes on track with a strong performance on the road at Saputo Stadium. They were coming off a 2-1 win over first-place New York City FC in their most recent contest and beat the Impact by the same 2-1 score in the last meeting between the two Eastern Conference clubs on May 21.

Brek Shea also had a goal and goalkeeper Jack Bendik had four saves for Orlando City. They managed for the most part to keep the Impact's dynamic duo of Didier Drogba and Ignacia Piatti in check.

Drogba did bust loose to open the scoring two minutes into the contest as the teams traded early goals. But Shea tied the game 1-1 two minutes later with a goal off an assist from Rivas in front of the crowd of 17,400. Kaka gave the Lions a 2-1 lead at intermission, with the first of his two off another assist from Rivas.
