The Houston Dynamo slumped to their fifth successive defeat in Major League Soccer on Sunday night with a heavy 3-0 loss at the Montreal Impact.

Jack McInerney headed Montreal in front three minutes before the interval before adding a second, shooting on the turn, in the 77th minute.

Substitute Marco Di Vaio wrapped things up three minutes later as the Impact claimed only their third win of the season to move within three points of Houston in the Eastern Conference.

In the day's other match, the Columbus Crew and FC Dallas played out a goalless draw.
