  • Print

MONTREAL - Luis Silva scored three times in the first half as D.C. United beat the Montreal Impact 4-2 on Wednesday to take lead in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference.

Nick DeLeon also scored for United, while Jack McInerney and Andres Romero scored for the Impact.

Silva gave the Washington club a 3-2 lead in the 39th minute with a strike from about 30 yards, curling a shot just past diving goalkeeper Troy Perkins' fingertips.

The 25-year-old midfielder completed the hat trick from the penalty spot seconds before halftime, sending Perkins the wrong way with a well-placed shot in the top right corner of the net.

At Portland, Oregon, Pa Modou Kah scored in stoppage time as the Timbers came back for a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas in the last game before the MLS takes a break for the World Cup.

Fabian Castillo and Blaz Perez scored for injury-depleted FC Dallas in the first half, but Will Johnson equalized for Portland from a penalty in the 79th minute in a testy match that saw two Dallas players sent off.
