HOUSTON (AP) — Macoumba Kandji scored twice to lead Houston to a 3-0 win over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night to extend the Dynamo's unbeaten streak to six games.
Bobby Boswell also scored to help the Dynamo (9-5-7) win their third straight and move into third place in the Eastern Coference. Kandji had his first two-goal game since Oct. 24, 2009, when he was playing for New York.
Montreal (7-13-3) has lost two of three and five of its last seven.
Kandji put the Dynamo up 1-0 in the seventh minute, knocking in the rebound of his own shot off Montreal goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts and Zarek Valentin and inside the far post.
Boswell extended Houston's in the 84th minute with a header from inside the 6-yard box to just inside the far post off Brad Davis' corner kick. Kandji capped the scoring in the 89th minute.
