The greatest story since the start of the CF Montreal season continued to be written with efforts, second efforts, praise and now goals and assists.

During the darkest moments in 2023, Mathieu Choinière wanted to be the beacon. That faint glow under the darkened skies. Now that the sky has cleared, he remains the anchor.

After scoring the insurance goal the previous week, the Quebecer rattled the ropes again and the Impact took the measure of Sporting de Kansas City 2-0, Saturday night, to sign a third consecutive win, in all competitions. .

Choinière started the first game of the campaign on the bench, a victim of his versatility and his status as an unestablished player. Then, his versatility served him as he helped out all over the field given the injuries to executives. After the second game, he was started in all subsequent games.

Now he is a tenor. A landmark in the register of efforts when these were not quite provided by its partners.

What’s more, he was decisive on almost all of the Bleu-blanc-noir’s goals this season in MLS. In addition to being the spark plug for the three CFM nets against the Philadelphia Union, he obtained the assist on the first net of the meeting, that of Bryce Duke.

It is no surprise that the native of Saint-Alexandre sits at the forefront of the scorers and accomplices of the Montreal eleven. However, it is his self-sacrifice that has mainly caught the attention since the start of the campaign.

Choinière and his teammates racked up a second shutout in as many games, scored for the first time this season on the road and earned their first points on the road.

CFM will pick up the slack again next Saturday as it hosts a visit from Orlando City.
