Philadelphians Abroad: Wenger puts Montreal ahead

Photo: Michael Long

Sometimes it’s easy to write about the success of Philadelphia-area players in leagues across the continent, such as when Reading-native Corey Hertzog has a fantastic week in which he scores a goal and two assists on loan with the Wilmington Hammerheads, or when Bryn Mawr lad Jimmy McLaughlin makes the most of his own loan by scoring his first goal with the Harrisburg City Islanders.

Other times it’s tough.

Enter Andrew Wenger. This Saturday, the Lancaster-native and Montreal Impact forward scored his fourth goal of the season at the expense of the Union. Marking his first game back as a starter since suffering a thigh injury back in June, Wenger opened Montreal’s account late in the first half. In what started as a short corner from Union alum Justin Mapp, it would be Impact midfielder Patrice Bernier’s perfectly floated ball that would find Wenger ready to deliver a glancing header. MacMath had no chance to react, the Impact had the lead. and once again Philadelphia’s weakness on set piece defense was exposed.
