Player Ratings: Houston Dynamo 3-0 Montreal Impact

The Montreal Impact were overwhelmed by a motivated Houston Dynamo side on Thursday night. Dom Kinnear's side put forth another classic playoff performance.

    Made a handful of stellar saves to keep the clean sheet.

    Eric Brunner

    He and Boswell did well to keep Di Vaio to a limited number of chances

    Warren Creavalle

    Played in Clark's shadow, but that's not a bad thing. Kept things simple and deferred to bigger impact players.

    Kofi Sarkodie

    Put in a couple of good crosses in the first half.

    Bobby Boswell

    Wrapped up Di Vaio as well as can be expected.

  • Brad Davis

    Brad Davis

    Wasn't as influential as he can be, but he didn't really need to be. Still a solid outing from the veteran.

  • Ricardo Clark

    Ricardo Clark

    Clark had a monster first half. His passing was spot on throughout.

  • Giles Barnes

    Giles Barnes

    Combined well with Clark and Bruin, especially in the first half. Probably should have had a goal.

    B. García

    Lively. Will need to focus his energy as Houston progresses.

  • Will Bruin

    Will Bruin

    Bruin was a handful for the Impact defenders from the opening whistle, and his finishing was equally impressive.

    Andrew Driver

    Didn't really have much to do in his 7 minutes on the pitch.

    Omar Cummings

    Got into a bit of a scuffle with Montreal's backline, but didn't have enough time to do much else.

    Troy Perkins

    Can't be blamed for any of the goals.

    Nelson Rivas

    In his first game in over a year, he sees yellow in both halves and is sent off. Horrible night for the volatile defender.

  • Jeb Brovsky

    Jeb Brovsky

    He showed rust, but was serviceable.

    Hassoun Camara

    Joined in on the attack a few times, and looked okay while defending.

  • Matteo Ferrari

    Matteo Ferrari

    Looked bad on both of Bruin's goals, which defies his solid play otherwise.

  • Collen Warner

    Collen Warner

    Largely invisible outside of a good early run down the middle.

  • Justin Mapp

    Justin Mapp

    One of the few Montreal players who looked interested in the match from start to finish.

  • Hernán Bernardello

    Hernán Bernardello

    His needless tackle led to Houston's penalty kick.

    Andrea Pisanu

    Struggled throughout his time on the pitch. First player to be subbed out.

    Marco Di Vaio

    Was caught offside a ton of times, but did get a couple of good shots on goal. Stupidly lost his head at the end of the match.

    A. Wenger

    Completely impotent as the second striker.

    Felipe Martins

    Should have started. He couldn't do much as the Impact were already defeated by the time he entered the match.

  • Andrés Romero

    1.50

    Andrés Romero

    Was subbed into to provide an offensive spark, instead he got sent off for a reckless foul.

    Daniele Paponi

    Looked okay coming off the bench.
