The Impact had the better of the play for the first 30 minutes, but the momentum switched when Brek Shea scored in the 33rd minute to bring Inter Miami even at 1-1.
James Pantemis, who is filling in for absent goalkeeper Clément Diop, was caught out of position when Shea scored on what appeared to be a harmless shot from outside. The shot was deflected by a Montreal defender, but this was not a good goal.
“We were thinking, again?” said Henry, who has seen his team squander leads on several occasions this season. “We were in total control and we concede a goal like that. It happens but, this time, instead of reacting, we acted in the second half … and we got a brilliant play to score the second goal.”
But Pantemis came up big in the latter stages of the game when he made two saves against Argentine international Gonzalo Higuain.
