Latif Blessing scores his first goal of the season for Los Angeles FC

Ghanaian winger Latif Atta Blessing registered his first goal of the season for Los Angeles FC in Major League Soccer on Saturday morning.

Los Angeles FC extended their unbeaten streak to six game after recording a 4-2 home victory over Montreal Impact at Banc of California Stadium 
 
In the seventh minute, Impact goalkeeper Evan Bush tried to clear a ball out of the back and banged it off a lurking Christian Ramirez, resulting in a bizarre opening goal. It would be the first of three goals in the opening 45, with MLS Golden Boot leader Carlos Vela involved in the next two.
 
In the 28th minute, Vela took a lovely throughball from Eduard Atuesta, carried toward goal, and slotted past Bush for his 15th goal of the year. Then less than three minutes later, he worked the opening leg of a triangle, finding Diego Rossi on the left post, who reached Latif Blessing in front of goal with the assist; Blessing backheeled the pass in for his first goal of the year.
 
After several early false alarms after the break — including an apparent Vela goal called offside — Vela connected with Tristan Blackmon on a 55th-minute corner kick; the right back's header in front of a celebratory throng in the 3252 grew the lead to 4-0. 
 
The Impact did get one back in the 70th minute, with Maximiliano Urruti's tight-angle shot missing the target but bouncing off Eddie Segura for the own goal as Saphir Taider scored from the spot to end the match in 4-2.
 
Blessing has scored one goal with two assists in his 15 appearances.
