Ahmed Hamdi’s brace wins CF Montreal in opposition to FC Cincinnati

Ahmed Hamdi scored two late goals as CF Montreal put back two goals on Saturday and scored a 5-4 win over visiting FC Cincinnati.

Hamdi equalized 4: 4 in the 74th minute and put Montreal in the lead in the 87th minute from just above Tormund.

Playing on their home field for the first time this season, Montreal (6-3-4, 22 points) won its third game in a row.

Brenner scored two goals for Cincinnati (3-6-3, 12 points), breaking off his unbeaten streak of four games. The Orange and Blue lost to Montreal for the first time in four all-time games.

Montreal midfielder Joaquin Torres almost gave the home crowd an early boost when his second-minute shot hit the crossbar.

But it was the visitors who would strike first in the end. Haris Medunjanin shot a Luciano Acosta cross and hit the right when goalkeeper James Pantemis made it 1-0 with a free kick in the sixth minute.

Montreal had two chances a few minutes later, including a Torres post in the 10th minute, but it was the guests again who took advantage of the capital.

Pantemis brought the ball back to his defender only slowly and a fast Brenner stormed in to double the lead to 2-0 in the 14th minute.

Mason Toye steered a header after a cross from Lassi Lappalainen from goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer to make it 2-1 in the 21st minute.

Vermeer parried Victor Wanyama, but the ball was loosely in front of him and Torres beat defender Nick Hagglund to equalize 2-2 in the 34th minute.

Gustavo Vallecilla deflected midfielder Alvaro Barreal’s free-kick in the 42nd minute, giving Cincinnati a 3-2 lead.

In the 46th minute, Brenner restored the two-goal lead with a back-and-back kick and sent the ball from defender Joel Waterman and Pantemis.

Toye shortened it to 4-3 after a penalty in the 72nd minute.
