Mariners lose heartbreaker to Montreal in stoppage time
Montreal - Eduardo Sebrango's volley in the final seconds of stoppage time gave Montreal the 1-0 win over the Mariners Friday night at Claude Robillard Sports Complex and may have ended the Mariners' hopes for post-season play. The winning goal came just minutes after Impact keeper Greg Sutton was forced to make a spectacular diving save of a blast from Mariner John Barry Nusum from six yards out.
The Mariners played the Impact even and well through the game, going stride for stride with the USL First Division leader. Montreal was only able to outshoot the Mariners 12-11.
The Mariners travel to Toronto on Sunday to take on the Lynx at 6 p.m. The team returns home to the Sportsplex on Friday, September 2 and Sunday, September 4 to face Portland and Charleston. Kickoff for both matches is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday night's match will be preceded by a Mariners' Alumni Game at 5 p.m. Gates will open at 4:30 p.m.
