THREE GOALS weren't enough for the Union at Montreal on Saturday night.

Jack McInerney, Antoine Hoppenot and Sebastien Le Toux scored but the Union lost, 5-3, to the Impact (7-2-2).

"You can't let this one linger for too long. We still have a lot of games left," McInerney said of the 5-5-3 Union. "Obviously, we have a game on Tuesday and a big game next Saturday on the road, so it's time to regroup - and I think we'll be OK. We'll recover."

The Union has a busy week. It plays tomorrow night (7:30) against the Ocean City Nor'Easters in a U.S. Open Cup game at PPL Park. And on Saturday, the Union returns to Canada to play Toronto (6 p.m., The Comcast Network).

"It's good for our confidence; losing certainly isn't, but being able to put chances in the back of the net is good because you need goals to win games," McInerney said. "Getting goals on the road is a good sign, but when we give up so many chances in the back like we did tonight we are not going to get the results. So now it's about going back to work and locking that down."
