MONTREAL, June 19 (UPI) -- Felipe Martins and Marco DiViao scored first-half goals Wednesday in sending Montreal to a 2-0 triumph over Houston.

The Impact won for the fourth time in five outings to increase their lead in the Eastern Conference to four points over idle New York.

It was the MLS-leading ninth win of the season for Montreal, which has two games in hand over New York.

Houston (6-5-4) has seen its winless streak reach five games. The Dynamo had played to a draw in their previous two contests.
