You lose a game to your local rivals 4-nil in a game where you’re not sure the score line reflected it, but at the same time they put four past us and we didn’t score any on them. It wasn’t good enough from us,” Alistair said after the match.Next for Montreal is a home league match against Charlotte on Sunday.
