MONTREAL -- Luis Silva scored three first-half goals and D.C. United beat the Montreal Impact 4-2 on Wednesday night to take lead in Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference.

Nick DeLeon also scored for United (7-4-4).

Jack McInerney and Andres Romero scored for the Impact (2-7-4).

Silva gave the Washington club a 3-2 lead in the 39th minute with a strike from about 30 yards, curling a shot just past diving goalkeeper Troy Perkins' fingertips.

The 25-year-old midfielder completed the hat trick from the penalty spot seconds before halftime, sending Perkins the wrong way with a well-placed shot in the top right corner of the net.
