MONTREAL (AP) — Matteo Ferrari scored in extra time to give the Montreal Impact a 3-2 victor against Real Salt Lake on Saturday.

Ferrari's own goal in the first half gave RSL a 1-0 lead.

Salt Lake captain Kyle Beckerman put the visitors ahead 2-1 in the 77th minute.

Three minutes later, rookie Maxim Tissot started a play and Andrew Wenger tip a pass to Marco Di Vaio, who tied it.

With time almost expired, rookie Blake Smith got the ball to Ferrari off a corner kick and the central defender put a sliding shot low past Nick Rimando.

The victory kept Montreal (6-2-2) in the race for top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Salt Lake (5-5-2) snapped a two-game winning streak.
