VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Fredy Montero scored twice and the Vancouver Whitecaps beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Wednesday night, giving Toronto FC the top spot in the MLS round-robin portion of the Canadian Championship.

Montreal needed a victory to top the three-team competition. Toronto will face the winner of the Canadian Premier League finale between the Forge FC of Hamilton, Ontario, and HFX Wanderers of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Cristian Dajome also scored for Vancouver (4-7-0). Romell Quioto scored for the Impact (5-5-1). On Sunday, the Impact beat the Whitecaps 4-2 in Montreal.
