A first half brace from Kei Kamara was abruptly cancelled out by a three-goal explosion from the Montreal Impact, who sent the New England Revolution to a 3-2 defeat on Saturday at Stade Saputo in Montreal.

Kamara tallied in the 18th and 32nd minutes – his first two for the Revolution in league play – before Michael Salazar answered with a double of his own in the 41st and 48th minutes. Ignacio Piatti put any hopes of a Revolution road point out pasture when he scored from the spot in the 51st minute.

The last time the Revolution opened up a two-goal lead and lost came in a 4-3 defeat at Vancouver on Jun. 15, 2013.

Saturday’s scoreline doomed the Revolution to their second straight defeat, and dropped them to 4-6-7 (19 points) at the halfway point of the season. The match concluded a five-game road swing across all competitions for the Revolution, who last played in front of the Foxboro Faithful back on May 28.

The Revolution return to action on Wednesday when they host New York City FC for the first time this year. The locals went 2-1-0 against City last season.
