CF Montreal celebrated its return to the Quebec metropolis with a dramatic match, full of action and twists. The new faces made a difference and the Wilfried Nancy men came back from behind and won Saturday night from 5 to 4 p.m.
Montreal fans could not have asked better or were able to back up such an outcome to this meeting. Mason Toi and Ahmed Hamdi both won doubles.
The Egyptian quickly became a favorite of Montreal audiences. Hamdi Nacho aired Piati in the 74th minute, dribbling the Cincinnati defense to tie the game at 4-4. By the end of the game, he had once again let his magic speak for CF Montreal to score three points.
When he first left the campaign, Joaquin Torres was hired as a striker along with Toy. Argentina proved their mettle by scoring in the 34th minute. His American friend spark plug for every return of the local team (21st and 76th, on penalty).
James Pantemis moved a lot, especially at the beginning of the game. Cincinnati scored four goals in the first 46 minutes, four of the opening shots. The Quebec goalkeeper played a trick when Brenner stole a ball from him when he hesitated for a moment.
The Brazilian striker found the back of the net twice, with Harris Medunjanin and Gustavo Vallesilla doing it once.
It was the first victory for the Montreal team over Cincinnati in four duels. The club finally lowered its pet.
