MONTREAL -- The near-sellout crowd at Saputo Stadium was primed for a Montreal Impact victory, but it was the Colorado Rapids who stole the show. Tony Cascio scored on a counter-attack in added time as the Rapids pulled off a comeback 4-3 victory over the Impact on Saturday night. It was the first home defeat of the season for Montreal, which wasted leads of 2-1 and 3-2 in the second half. It was also their first loss to a Western Conference opponent. "It wasnt our greatest game," said Impact midfielder Patrice Bernier. Montreal had everyone up field for a corner kick when midfielder Davy Arnaud was stripped of the ball and the Rapids counter attacked. Chris Klutes attempt was blocked, but the ball bounced to Cascio, whose shot went off Bernier and past goalie Troy Perkins for the game-winner. The sudden reversal stunned the Impact and the 20,383 fans in the seats. "I just went in to help (Klute)," said Cascio, who had entered the game as a substitute in the final minute of regular time and ended up with his first goal of the season. "No one expects it to deflect back to you, but I was in the right place at the right time and I just shot it." Another late substitute, Deshorn Brown, had tied the game in the 77th minute. Atiba Harris and Dillon Powers also scored for the Rapids (6-7-5), who ended a three-game losing run with their highest offensive output of the season. Daniele Paponi, with his first two MLS goals, and Hassoun Camara scored for Eastern Conference-leading Montreal (9-4-2), who are now 6-1-1 at home. Arnaud was in his first MLS game in nearly two months after missing nine games with a concussion. The veteran midfielders hustle helped set up Paponis go-ahead goal in the 73rd minute, but it was his turnover that led to Colorados game-winning goal. "I was trying to come inside to make a play and I got caught," he said. "It cost us the last goal. "I take full responsibility for that." The Impact may have been wiser to play cautiously in added time and settle for the draw, but they felt they could go for the win and it backfired. "We feel like we can win every game at home," added Arnaud. "That last corner, we had numbers forward and maybe we werent organized like we should have been, but we want to win the game." It was a game of defensive breakdowns at both ends for two of the better defensive clubs in MLS. "We made a lot of mistakes that gave them opportunities," said Bernier. "I wont take credit away from them. "They played their game. But since we were doing so well offensively we thought we could go and score four or five. Sometimes we have to manage the game better so the defence can have a breather. But it happens. We werent going to play 34 great games (this season)." It was the second time in as many meetings that Colorado has pulled off a late win over Montreal. In Denver last season, the Rapids were down one man but still managed a 3-2 victory. The Rapids played defensively to start, and drew some boos by dallying and slowing play whenever possible, but they got the opening goal off a free kick in the 24th minute. Lanky former Vancouver Whitecap Harris stayed at the edge of the crowd in front of Perkins and headed Powers kick inside the far post for his team-leading fifth of the season. Camara got the equalizer in the 38th minute while on his back, as Andrea Pisanus corner kick ping-ponged inside the Colorado box and the Montreal fullback got a foot on it with a semi-bicycle kick and it went in. Edson Buddle had just tipped a Harris pass off the crossbar when Marco Di Vaio run up the middle on a counter-attack and fed Paponi at the edge of the penalty area. The Italian cut inside and bent a shot inside the post in the 42nd for his first MLS goal. Di Vaio, who leads the team with 10 goals, got his first assist of the season. The Impact defence was caught standing around as Powers took a pass from Nathan Sturgis and slid it in along the ground in the 59th. Arnaud kept a Felipe Martins pass from crossing the end line and chipped it in front for Paponi to push past Clint Irwin for a 3-2 lead in the 73rd. But Brown, only three minutes after replacing Buddle, ran straight up the middle to fire a Sturgis pass behind Perkins in the 77th. "Its what happens at the end thats important and it was a bad end for us," said Impact coach Marco Schallibaum. "Thats football. "Now we have Toronto and thats another game." The Impact have their second MLS meeting of the season with TFC Wednesday night in Toronto. For Rapids coach Oscar Pareja, the game was "a hard test against a good rival. And to be honest, I thought our team deserved the victory." Notes: Arnaud started on the bench but went in for Pisanu in the 58th. . . Sanna Nyassi (hamstring) sat out. . .

Captain Joel Selwood has called the work Geelong put into Hawthorns Sam Mitchell an attempt to influence the AFL star.One of the features of the Cats epic qualifying final win over Hawthorn on Friday night was a series of furious physical clashes, with key players such as Selwood and Mitchell frequently involved.At one stage, Selwood and his brother Scott went toe-to-toe with Mitchell in a push and shove.Scott Selwood was recalled specifically to tag the influential Hawthorn utility and it was an eventful duel.We obviously want to influence the players that we think set them up really quite well and Sam is one of those, the Geelong captain said.We have much respect for him.We sat Scott on him for fair periods of the game and then in other parts we let him run free.Asked about the Selwood brothers v Mitchell scrap, the Cats captain said it was not planned.Hawthorn captain Luke Hodge played most of the game with his head bandaged, typifying the games aggression.The match review panel will also probably look at a first-half clash between the Cats captain and Hawks onballer Jordan Lewis.I heard it after the game but Im not sure what the incident was, Selwood said.I dont know that he has too much to worry about.Selwood added the overriding emotion after the game was relief and he said the Cats got out of jail with the two-point win.It was the moost-watched game on free-to-air TV since last years grand final.ddddddddddddCats key forward Tom Hawkins called it one of the best games he had played in and Selwood said they were thankful to reach the preliminary final.Selwood also had sympathy for Hawthorn onballer Isaac Smith, whose shot at goal after the siren went through for a point.The Cats captain said immediately after the ball left Smiths boot, he thought it was a goal and they would have to play the semi-final next weekend against the Western Bulldogs.Hes a very good kick and I actually watched it from in front of him, Selwood said.It came off his boot really well but it just faded away.I did think it was going in.Im sure hed put his hand up to take that kick again one day.The Cats were 17 points behind in the third term and Selwood said they had plenty of room for improvement.We didnt picture the game like it was last night - we probably moved the ball a bit quick at times and allowed them to use the ball, use the game style they wanted, he said.It was a game of inches in the end.Theyre a good footy side and theyre going to hold momentum for a long time.For us, it was just about hanging on and then when we got our opportunities, just to take (them).
