Im­pact signs Cana­dian mid­fielder Pi­ette

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

The sign­ing of Cana­dian na­tional team mid­fielder Sa­muel Pi­ette adds to the grow­ing lo­cal flavour on the Montreal Im­pact.

The na­tive of Re­pentigny, Que., who signed a two-anda-half year con­tract with an op­tion for 2020 on Thurs­day, gives the club seven play­ers from Que­bec.

They in­clude mid­field­ers Pa­trice Bernier and Bal­lou Tabla and for­ward Anthony Jack­son-Hamel, who play reg­u­larly. Back-up goal­keeper Max Cre­peau and mid­field­ers Louis Be­land Goyette and David Choiniere are also on the squad. That’s not to men­tion de­fender Wan­drille Le­fevre, who was born in France but moved to Montreal as a teenager and is con­sid­ered a “home­grown” player.
