MONTREAL -- Marco Di Vaio wont be the only proven goal-scorer on the Montreal Impact any more. Winless in four games to open the Major League Soccer season, the Impact (0-3-1) sent 2012 first-overall draft pick Andrew Wenger to the Philadelphia Union for all-star Jack McInerney in a swap of forwards on Friday. The surprise move came a day ahead of the Impacts home game against another team searching for its first victory -- the New York Red Bulls (0-1-3). The 20,000-plus fans expected at Olympic Stadium on Saturday wont get to see the player known as Jack Mac however, as 21-year-old McInerney only begins training with his new team early next week. The 23-year-old Wenger would not have been available anyway, as he is serving a one-game suspension for drawing a red card in Montreals 1-1 tie at Philadelphia last weekend. He will miss the Unions game at Chicago. Wenger was the top pick in the SuperDraft when Montreal entered MLS in 2012, but has struggled to find regular playing time. Impact president Joey Saputo tweeted: "Thank you Andrew. You will always be part of our history." When McInerney is ready to play, coach Frank Klopas will decide whether to have him and Di Vaio on the field at once or alternate them in the one-forward system the team usually employs. "Im excited to play under his wing," McInerney said of Di Vaio. "Hes one of the best finishers MLS has ever had. "I dont know how it will play out on the field, but if we play together its a dream come true. Whether we play together or not, its a great learning experience." The Chattanooga, Tenn., native is in his fifth MLS season. Drafted seventh overall by the Union in 2010, he has a goal and an assist in four games this season and 25 goals and four assists in 95 career MLS games. McInerney had 10 goals in the opening 15 games in 2013, which earned him a chance to have Di Vaio as a teammate for a day at the all-star game. However, the five-foot-10 striker added only two more after returning from more than a month with the U.S. national team at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he didnt play and was released after the group stage. He said the inactivity affected his rhythm and his confidence. "My confidence was down and at the same time the team wasnt doing well and thats why it didnt go well for me," he said. He said he was surprised to be traded, but was excited to join the Impact. The Union opted to deal away a player whose contract is up at the end of this season and who was expected to seek a raise. The 2014 salary list is not out yet, but he earned $125,500 last season. McInerney has talked about moving to Europe, but said he would consider signing a new deal with Montreal. Impact sporting director Nick De Santis said McInerney has an option year on his contract and should be with the Impact until the end of the 2015 season. In return, Philadelphia got the six-foot 185-pound Wenger, a native of Lancaster, Pa., who moves back to his home state to pursue his bid to be an regular MLS starter. "Andrew is a young and talented attacking player who we think is a good fit with our style of play," Union coach John Hackworth said. Wenger, a converted defender, has six goals and three assists in 51 career games. He started the first three games this season while Di Vaio sat out a suspension and had one goal -- a header in a season-opening 3-2 loss in Dallas. Di Vaios importance to the Impact was underlined when he returned last Saturday. Only four minutes after Wenger was sent off, the Italian put a clinical finish on a feed from Justin Mapp to tie the game in the 80th minute give Montreal its first point of the season. There has been concern that the club was too dependant on their 37-year-old striker, so McInerney will give them another option. He and Di Vaio are similar players -- opportunistic, smaller forwards who let their teammates know about it when they dont get the ball. And Di Vaio is expected to retire at the end of the season. "Its important that you have not only one striker that is able to score goals," said De Santis. "We dont depend just on Marco, but hes scored so many goals and taken a lot of the load. "We get a quality player in Jack who has proven he can score goals at a young age. He gives us more firepower up front." It was the Impacts biggest trade since they sent former all-star goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts to Portland for Troy Perkins on Aug. 7, 2012. The move came as the Impact try to get back on course after a weak start. Four of their next five games are at home. Klopas former club, the Chicago Fire, visits Olympic Stadium next week, and the Impacts first game on the grass pitch at Saputo Stadium is April 26 against the Union, followed by a May 10 meeting with Kansas City. "Its an opportunity to gain some ground," said Klopas. The Red Bulls are hurting, with forward Tim Cahill (hamstring) and right back Richard Eckersley (ankle) going down in a 1-1 home draw with Chivas USA last week. Also, it was unknown if star forward Thierry Henry or centre back Jameson Olave will play because both often sit out games on artificial turf. It is expected that Impact captain Patrice Bernier and fullback Jeb Brovsky, both regaining fitness after injuries, will start from the bench for a second week in a row. Former Red Bulls left back Heath Pearce will likely get a second straight start. Jordan 12 Wholesale Shoes . However, it wasnt a problem on Monday night.

Cheap Jordan 12 For Sale .com) - Delon Wright scored 17 points and No.ORLANDO, Fla. -- Matt Every is finally a winner on the PGA Tour, and hes still not sure how it happened. He was nine shots behind Masters champion Adam Scott going into the weekend at Bay Hill. He was still four back of the Australian he referred to as a "stud" going into the final round Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Every figured even par over the last three holes would do the trick. He made two bogeys. Even after a hearty handshake from the tournament host and a shiny trophy an arms length away from, Every summed up this wild day with just the right words. "I ... I ... I cant believe I won," he said. "I just ... I really cant." The tee shot that he feared might be out-of-bounds on No. 9 somehow bounced along a cart path and led to an unlikely birdie. He surged to a three-shot lead when Scotts touch with the putter vanished. Even with two bogeys on the last three holes -- he missed a 4-foot par putt on the 18th -- Every still closed with a 2-under 70. The last bogey made him sweat out the finish. Keegan Bradley, who birdied the 16th and 17th holes, had a 30-foot birdie putt on the 18th that would have forced a playoff. It was similar to the putt Tiger Woods has made so often to win at Bay Hill. Bradleys putt stayed left of the hole, and he finished one shot behind. Every finished at 13-under 275, one shot ahead of Bradley, who needed two late birdies for a 72. Scott was third. David Hearn (74) of Brantford, Ont., finished in a tie for 52nd at 1-over par. In his 92nd start as a pro on the PGA Tour, Every finally won at just the right time and just the right place. The 30-year-old who grew up 90 minutes away in Daytona Beach used to come to Bay Hill as a kid to watch the tournament. And he beat the Masters champion to earn his own spot in the Masters next month. "Being close to winning out here, it can be kind of discouraging because if you dont win, you just wonder if its ever going to happen," Every said. "And sometimes you tell yourself, Well, maybe its meant to be somewhere else, somewhere better. I dont see how it could get much better than this -- being so close to where I grew up and all the fans out there that were cheering me on. It was awesome." It was a nightmare for Scott. He shattered the Bay Hill record by taking a seven-shot lead after 36 holes and still led by three shots over Bradley going into Sunday. His putting stroke betrayed him. Scott made only five bogeys over 54 holes. He made five on Sunday alone. And he didnt make a birdie over the last 14 holes for a 76. "t;Im annoyed that I didnt do better today," Scott said.dddddddddddd "Sometimes youve got to be hard on yourself. Sometimes you dont. And I think I was getting into a really good spot, and an opportunity here to run away with an event and really take a lot of confidence. Im taking confidence anyway, from just some good play. But some opportunities youve got to take." Cocky by nature, Every choked back tears when he realized he had won. "Its hard," he said, stopping to compose himself. "Its tough, man. You just never know if its going to happen. You get there so many times. Its nice to get it done." He made it hard on himself. Every had a three-shot lead on the par-5 16th hole -- the easiest at Bay Hill -- when he drove into the woods, hit a tree trying to pitch out, laid up short of the water to play it safe and had to grind out a bogey. Scott, playing in the final group behind him, drilled 6-iron to 20 feet for an eagle putt that would have tied him for the lead. He three-putted for par. It was the second time in six tournaments that Scott lost a big lead on the last day. He had a four-shot advantage in the Australian Open and lost on the final hole to Rory McIlroy. This time, he didnt even have a realistic chance playing the 18th. "I really think the putting has let me down on both of those occasions," Scott said. "Today was a bit shaky. But this course was asking a lot of everyone today, and my short game just wasnt there. So that needs to be tightened up and probably shows that I need to do a bit more work on it to hold up under the pressure." Scott finished alone in third. He had to win Bay Hill to reach No. 1 in the world ranking when he arrived at Augusta National. Now, the No. 1 spot that Woods has held for the last year will be up for grabs at the Masters among Woods, Scott and Henrik Stenson, who tied for fifth at Bay Hill. Until Sunday, about the only time Every made news on the PGA Tour was when he was arrested and jailed on a misdemeanour drug possession charge at the 2010 John Deere Classic after agents were called to a casino hotel because of a strong odour of marijuana coming from the room he was in. Every paid the price with a three-month suspension that kept him from retaining his PGA Tour card. He once said earning his card back was his greatest achievement, though that sure takes a seat back to his win at Bay Hill. "Its just cool that I can say that I won on the PGA Tour," Every said. "But I always felt like my game was plenty good enough to win out here."
