COLUMBUS, Ohio — Maxim Tissot and Andres Romero scored and Montreal beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 on Saturday night for the Impact's first road win in 26 games.
It was Montreal's first win away from home since beating New England on Sept. 8, 2013.

Tissot tapped in a rebound 10 minutes into the second half to start the scoring. Goalkeeper Steve Clark saved Jack McInerney's hustle play and Tissot was there for the easy finish. Montreal made it 2-0 in the 79th minute when Romero chipped home a goal on a counter attack off a feed from Ignacio Piatti.
Montreal (4-4-2) won for the first time in Columbus in six attempts. Columbus (4-6-4) is winless in five games and has given up multiple goals in seven straight matches.
Columbus' Federico Higuain cleaned up a failed clearance in the first minute of second-half stoppage time to make it 2-1.
