MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Impact remained winless in Major League Soccer to start the season after dropping their home opener to the Seattle Sounders 2-0 on Sunday.
Lamarr Neagle, who spent the 2012 season with Montreal before being traded to the Sounders, headed a Gonzalo Pineda free kick out of a crowd and it hit the crossbar and deflected off Montreal goalkeeper Troy Perkins for an own goal in the 8th minute.
Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins then put the Sounders ahead 2-0 with a header in the 58th.
Montreal was without Italian striker Marco Di Vaio, who was serving the last match of a three-match suspension with midfielder Andres Romero for getting into a shoving match with several Houston players at the end of a playoff game in October.
Both players will be back for Montreal's game Saturday in Philadelphia.
In Sunday's other MLS match, the New York Red Bulls drew with the Chicago Fire 1-1 in a game played in 28 degree Fahrenheit (minus 2 Celsius) temperatures.
Chicago midfielder Jeff Larentowicz headed Harrison Shipp's corner kick past goalkeeper Luis Robles from 8 yards out in the 6th minute.
Dax McCarty got the equalizer for New York in the 21st.
