MONTREAL (AP) — Orji Okwonkwo scored twice in his first game back from a leg injury to help the Montreal Impact beat the Portland Timbers 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Okwonkwo missed the last three games for Montreal (9-3-7) after the injury against Los Angeles FC on May 25. He opened the scoring in the 28th minute and broke a tie in the 66th.

Tomas Conechny scored for Portland (5-8-2) in the 53rd.

The start of the games was delayed 45 minutes because of a thunderstorm.
