MONTREAL – Belgian defender Laurent Ciman scored off a header in the 88th minute to give the Montreal Impact a 1-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night at Saputo Stadium. Ciman connected off Marco Donadel’s free kick for his second goal of the season. “It was tough because we had chances and we just couldn’t put them away,” Ciman said. “We were mentally and physically solid, and we took advantage of it.” Montreal (7-8-3) won for the sixth time in seven home matches and scored at home for the 21st consecutive game dating to Aug. 2, 2014. Former Impact goalkeeper Troy Perkins made five saves for Seattle (10-10-2). “We did a pretty good job overall, except for that one slip,” Perkins said. “It’s a punch in the gut certainly. But it’s also a wakeup call. Those are the games we have to see out.” The Sounders did not have a shot on target all game and last scored 272 minutes ago. The 29-year-old Ciman had three shots, two tackles and 74 passes for the Impact.
