NASHVILLE — Hany Mukhtar scored in the 77th minute to earn Nashville a 2-2 tie with CF Montreal in Major League Soccer play Saturday.

Mukhtar took a loose ball in the box and sent it past the keeper.

Montreal's Mason Toye opened the scoring in the 13th minute. Zachary Brault-Guillard made it 2-0 at the 42nd by starting a midfield run down the right and putting a shot above the keeper scraping the bottom of the crossbar for his first MLS goal.
