The Puerto Rico Islanders and Montreal Impact battled to goalless draw to rap up regular-season play in the United Soccer Leagues First Division before a paid attendance of 12,233 at Saputo Stadium Sunday night.
The Impact outshot the Islanders 15-4, but could not beat goalkeeper Justin Myers, who repeatedly came up big in the final minutes as the home side tried in vain to end things with a goal for its 13th win of the season.
The teams went into what was a meaningless game in terms of the coming playoffs. The Islanders finished first overall in the 11-team league and will have a bye through the first round. The third-place Impact, 12-12-6, will face the Seattle Sounders in the two-game, aggregate-goals quarterfinal with the series opening in Seattle on Friday.
