MONTREAL, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Andrew Wenger scored in the first half Saturday and the Montreal Impact took its fourth straight home win with a 2-0 decision over Philadelphia.

Wegner's tally in the 44th minute came off a set piece in which Justin Mapp found Patrice Bernier on a corner kick and he in turn crossed to Wenger. The Impact striker then headed the ball past Zac MacMath for his fourth of the season.

Montreal (10-13-3) doubled its advantage in the 78th on a Felipe Martins score off a Hassoun Camara cross.

The Impact's win put them two points out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Union fell to 7-12-2 with the setback.
