(Reuters) - The New York City FC topped the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Saturday for their second straight win, the first two-game win streak in franchise history.
David Villa opened the scoring in the 31st minute with his team-high fourth goal, while Mix Diskerud padded the lead in the 76th minute.
Montreal cut the lead late on a goal by Wandrille Lefevre in the 88th minute, before Kwadwo Poku restored the two-goal lead in the 90th minute.
The result left New York and Montreal in a three-way tie for last place in the Eastern Conference.
The third team in that tie is Chicago Fire, who lost 2-0 to the New England Revolution on Saturday, on goals by Charlie Davies and Diego Fagundez.
In other matches, Seattle Sounders topped FC Dallas 3-0, while LA Galaxy tied Columbus Crew 1-1.
