MONTREAL -- Matteo Ferrari went from being the first-half goat to the extra-time hero for the Montreal Impact. After accidentally scoring into his own net only seven minutes in, the veteran defender got it back with a goal off a corner kick in added time on Saturday as the Impact pulled out an unlikely 3-2 MLS victory over Real Salt Lake. "Actually, today I scored twice," the 33-year-old former Italy defender said with a laugh. "Its my doppietta (brace), as we say in Italian. "After the own goal, I had a good answer at the end. Im happy for the team because we showed the character we have." The goal completed a second half comeback after Salt Lake captain Kyle Beckerman put the visitors ahead 2-1 in the 77th minute. Only three minutes later, rookie Maxim Tissot started the play that saw Andrew Wenger tip a pass to Marco Di Vaio to tie the game. 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, as the 14,578 in the Saputo Stadium stands on a chilly afternoon went wild. "You could see in the second half he wanted to erase the black mark of the own goal," said coach Marco Schallibaum. "There was a lot of determination there, but thats what I like about this team." The victory kept Montreal (6-2-2) in the race for top spot in the Eastern Conference. Salt Lake (5-5-2), ended a two-game winning run, but not for want of chances to win. The visitors forward duo of Devon Sandoval and Olmes Garcia gave the Montreal defence fits all afternoon with their height and speed. Besides scoring twice, Salt Lake kept goalie Troy Perkins busy with 21 shots, including seven on target. Perkins had to reach out a hand to stop a glittering chance from Garcia 15 minutes in that could have given Salt Lake a two-goal lead. And he stoned substitute Joao Plata when the former Toronto FC midfielder was in alone in the 86th. "I still feel a lot of positive things about how Real Salt Lake approached this match and played this match," said coach Jason Kreis. "We were aggressive all match. "I think it was a pretty well-played match. We just have to look at how we finished, because if we had walked out with even one point, I think wed have felt pretty good about ourselves." Midfielder Felipe Martins scored in the first half for Montreal. The visitors pressured the Montreal defence early and it produced an own goal as Lovel Palmers pass into the middle was tipped in by Ferrari, normally the Impacts most reliable defender. Montreal got it back in the 39th as Jeb Brovsky sent Justin Mapp down the right flank and his low cross was put in by the sliding Felipe. Beckerman put Salt Lake ahead as he jumped on a loose ball after a corner kick and scored, only to see Di Vaio tie it up with his sixth of the season. Then Ferrari came up with his first MLS goal. "It was a big goal," said his fellow-Italian Di Vaio. "Its not easy for a defender to score, especially at the end of a game when youre tired. "It was a big win for the team." It was also a big day for Tissot, the Impact Academy graduate who picked up an assist in his first MLS start. He threw the ball in to Smith, who fed it back and then blocked out a defender so Tissot could rush toward the penalty area to feed Wenger for the tip to Di Vaio. "Most importantly, we got the win, but personally, it was a boost of confidence and its going to help me for the upcoming games," said Tissot, of Gatineau, Que. The victory kept the Impact unbeaten at home this season at 4-0-1, while Salt Lake dropped to 3-3-1 away. "Now weve officially established this place as a fortress," said Brovsky, the only Impact player besides Perkins to have played every minute of every Impact match in MLS this season. The Impact remain at home to face the Vancouver Whitecaps in the first leg of their Amway Canadian Championship series on Wednesday. Then they get a much-needed week off before playing host to Philadelphia on May 25. Salt Lake played the second of three straight road games. They play next week at Chivas USA. Salt Lake has never won in 10 MLS games in Canada. They have played six times in Toronto and three in Vancouver. It was their first visit to Montreal.

BERKELEY, Calif. -- Ivan Rabb has posted a double-double in all three games hes played this season, but after Cals 67-55 win over Southeastern Louisiana on Sunday, the sophomore forward said he still hasnt found his comfort zone.Honestly its still a little rough, said Rabb, an AP preseason All-American, who missed more than a month of practice time and the seasons first two games with a toe injury. I missed a lot of shots I normally make. My teammates tell me, `Dont get frustrated, keep your head up. Rabb had 17 points and 10 rebounds against the Lions.Charlie Moore scored 17 of his 22 points in the first half to set the tone and led the Bears (4-1) in scoring for the third time in the past four games. Moore, who entered the game as the Pac-12 Conferences No. 3 scorer averaging 19.8 points, made 4 of 6 from the 3-point arc.Gosh, hes got such a great future, Southeastern Louisiana coach Jay Ladner said of Moore. He was really the difference in the game.Grant Mullins added 13 points and Kingsley Okoroh had 10 points and nine rebounds for Cal.Davon Hayes led Southeastern Louisiana (4-3) with 11 points. Moses Greenwood added 10 points.Rabb returned to Cal after being projected as an NBA lottery pick, and through three games is averaging 16 points and 10.3 rebounds. But his game still appears a bit ragged.Ive had very limited practices, Rabb said. When you try to practice a few times and go and play, its night and day. The games are a lot faster. But Im starting to get into a groove and my conditioning is getting little better.Cal coach Cuonzo Martin said Rabbs uneven play is understandable. You miss that kind of time, youre a step slow, he said. My thing is defend, rebound and play hard. The scoring will come.Southeastern Louisiana was in a hole from the start. Guard Marlain Veal picked up three fouls in a span of 11 secondss and Cal led 11-1.ddddddddddddVeal, coming off a 20-point game at Colorado State, scored just two points before fouling out.For the second straight game, Cal led by 20 points in the second half then allowed its opponent to cut the margin to single digits. This time, the Bears missed 10 straight shots and the Lions pulled within 48-39 with 10 minutes left.I thought we played great in the second half. We made a game out of it, Ladner said. We got a little discombobulated there when Veal picked up three quick fouls to start the game. It took a while for us to get settled down.BIG PICTURECal: The Bears will be without junior center Kameron Rooks indefinitely after he injured his left knee Friday against Wyoming. Rooks, who started two of Cals first four games, was averaging 6.5 points and 6.8 rebounds. He is scheduled to undergo further tests.Rooks joins senior guard Jabari Bird on the shelf. Bird, a former McDonalds All-American, scored 14 points in Cals opener but has missed the past four games with back spasms. The timetable for his return is uncertain.Southeastern Louisiana: Turnovers have been a thorn for the Lions. They entered play Sunday tied for 263rd nationally at 17.2 turnovers per game, and they had three against Cal before scoring their first field goal. Southeastern finished with 16 giveaways.UP NEXTCal plays its fourth game in a five-game homestand on Wednesday against Louisiana Tech (3-2), whose two defeats this season were on the road to South Carolina and Nebraska.Having completed a three-game road trip through Texas, Colorado and California, Southeastern Louisiana returns home to play Wednesday against Maryland-Eastern Shore (0-6), which is playing its sixth road game in seven.
