MONTREAL -- Taking two weeks off after a devastating loss will be unbearable for Impact defender Heath Pearce. Montreal blew a lead and conceded four first-half goals in a 4-2 defeat to D.C. United on Wednesday at Saputo Stadium. "Its torture," said Pearce, whose team wont play again until the end of the month due to Major League Soccers World Cup break. "Its torture to go two weeks without a game. The good thing about this sport is usually you play every week and you get a chance to correct things. "Weve seen what it takes for us to be good, the tools that we have and what happens when we dont implement them." Pearce and the Impact backline were sloppy on Wednesday, giving D.C.s forwards and midfielders too much space and time with the ball in the final third. On the opener in the sixth minute of play, striker Fabian Espindola tricked Pearce and centre back Wandrille Lefevre with a no-look pass to Luis Silva, who put away his first of the season en route to a first-half hat trick. Espindola caught the Impact ball watching again in the 23rd minute as he sent a seemingly harmless low cross into the box. The pass evaded three Montreal defenders and fell right to Nick DeLeon, who tied the game 2-2 with an easy tap-in. Silva gave the visiting team the 3-2 lead with a breathtaking strike from about 30 yards out in the 39th minute. Unchallenged, and with Montreals back four dropping off, D.C.s attacking midfielder curled a shot just past a diving Troy Perkins fingertips. The 25-year-old, who had gone nine games without a goal prior to Wednesday, completed his hat trick from the penalty spot after Steve Birnbaum being brought down Hassoun Camara. "What do you want me to do?" asked Impact manager Frank Klopas. "Jump on the field and play for them? Im a very competitive person, and this is not the team I want. I want a team thats going to go on the field and compete. I want a group of players that will go out there and leave everything on the field." Klopas said he likely wouldnt shuffle his backline during the break given the string of good performances over the last few weeks. Fresh off its Amway Canadian Championship victory, Montreal came into the match unbeaten at home in its last three games in all competitions and riding consecutive clean sheets. Klopas men hadnt conceded at Saputo Stadium in 206 minutes. The stretch of positive results after a devastating start to the season made the loss to D.C. United tougher to swallow. "We would be foolish to think that we werent going to have more setbacks along the way," said Pearce. "You dont correct a system overnight. But that result was unacceptable for us. In any league, on any team, you have to have enough guys on any single day having good games. Today we didnt have enough, if any." D.C.s win, the teams seventh in its last 11 games, propelled United (7-4-4) to the top of Eastern Conference standings. At the other end of the table, the Impact (2-7-4) are dead last with only 10 points from 13 games. Jack McInerney and Andres Romero gave their team a chance to take points from Wednesdays encounter, scoring back-to-back goals to give the Impact a 2-1 lead. McInerney found the back of the net in the 12th with a tight-angle shot that grazed the post to goalie Andrew Dykstras left before Romero gave the Impact a short-lived lead in the 21st with a great individual effort. Down 4-2, Impact captain Patrice Bernier had a golden opportunity to ignite a comeback in the 76th minute, but his penalty shot hit the post, went off Dykstras back and trickled out of play. The shot came after Davy Arnaud was called for a hand ball. Pearce tried making the most out of the loss. "As bad as it is, it gives us a chance to really reflect, and each guy to go home and take a look in the mirror individually and think about what we can do better and how we can help the team more, all of us, from A to Z," he said. Notes: This was only the second time Montreal conceded four goals at home in the MLS era. a Justin Mapp missed the game with a groin injury. a Three Montreal supporters were expelled from Saputo Stadium during the second half for igniting flares in the stands. The same three individuals were reprimanded last week for a similar incident. a The Impact signed Spanish midfielder Gorka Larrea prior to the game on Wednesday.

Calgary finished atop the CFL standings with a 14-4 record and earned the right to host the West Division final at McMahon Stadium on Nov.SHANGHAI - Shanghai Masters winner Roger Federer was so rusty in his first match back this week after a month-long break that he was close to packing his bags and heading home.The Swiss star had racked up 57 unforced errors against Leonardo Mayer in the second round and fought off five match points before finally pulling through well after midnight.Four days after his narrow escape, however, he captured his fourth title of the year with a 7-6 (6), 7-6 (2) win over Frances Gilles Simon in Sundays final.I got very, very lucky, Federer said. I know what a privilege it is to be here today.Its been a banner year for Federer despite the fact hes fallen just short at the majors, including a heart-breaking loss to Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final. Federer leads the tour this season in match wins (61), top-10 wins (13) and final appearances (nine). And on Monday, he will leap past Rafael Nadal to No. 2 in the rankings for the first time in more than a year.Though Djokovic is still far ahead in No. 1, Federer also got his third win of the year against the Serb in the semifinals. He put on such a dominant display that Djokovic said in an unusually brief post-match news conference that it was the best Federer has ever played against him.A year ago, it was a different story. Bothered by back problems, he fell to a number of lower-ranked players and only won one title.The biggest concern was to be healthy this year, Federer said. Thats something Im just so pleased about, to see that the hard work I put in last year is paying off. Not only is it paying off, but Im feeling good, Im waking up normal. Im not half broken like I was last year.Im enjoying myself on the tennis court, he added. Im playing the way I was hoping I could play again.Fedderer didnt play the cleanest match on Sunday, though, even with the roof on the stadium closed due to the extremely windy conditions.ddddddddddddThe 17-time major winner finished with 36 unforced errors to 21 winners, but he was the more aggressive player, constantly attacking the net behind crisp approach shots and forcing Simon to try to pass. He won 24 of 35 points at net.He still has the same strengths, this fantastic serve and this huge forehand, Simon said. Now I know him, so Im not scared anymore when I have to play him. But its still so hard to beat him.Federer played a very loose service game to start the match, misfiring badly on his forehand to give Simon an immediate break for 1-0. Before the final, he had only dropped serve three times all week.Simon couldnt capitalize on Federers mistakes, though. Serving for the set at 5-4, his steady baseline game suddenly fell apart and he made several consecutive errors to allow Federer to break back and level the score.The Frenchman had chances to take the match to a third set, getting two break points on Federers serve at 5-6, but he missed a return wide and then hit a forehand well long to squander both.Every time he has an opportunity, hes really good at taking it, Simon said. When you play a close match with him, maybe he just has this feeling that he will somehow survive the match every time.The No. 29-ranked Simon was attempting to become the lowest-ranked player to win a Masters title since No. 50 Tomas Berdych captured the Paris title in 2005.The Frenchman fell out of the top 20 in February for the first time since 2011, but after a solid week in which he defeated two top-10 players — No. 4 Stan Wawrinka and No. 7 Berdych — hell vault back up to No. 19.
