MLS Game Summary - Vancouver at Toronto FC



(Wednesday, July 16, 2014)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: Vancouver 1, Toronto FC 1

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Vancouver Whitecaps FC and Toronto FC traded second-half goals in a 1-1 draw at BMO Field on Wednesday as TFC's Jermain Defoe scored the equalizer from the penalty spot in the 64th minute.

Vancouver's Darren Mattocks put his side in front five minutes after halftime, but Defoe leveled the match from the spot after he was tripped inside the area by the Whitecaps Nigel Reo-Coker.

Toronto had a few chances to win the match in the closing minutes, but the team instead had to settle for its third draw in five games.

The best chance for either side in the first half came in the 40th minute when a shot from Toronto's Jonathan Osorio was saved by Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted, allowing Defoe to score on the rebound. However, the goal was ruled out for offsides and the two teams entered the half scoreless.

The Whitecaps broke the deadlock in the 50th minute when Russell Teibert worked his way down the left wing and delivered a low ball into the area for Mattocks, who beat three defenders to the pass and fired home a first-time shot.

Toronto answered 14 minutes later when Defoe was tripped by Reo-Coker inside the box, and the Englishman picked himself up and sent Ousted the wrong way from the spot to level the contest.

There were two chances for Toronto to win the game in the closing minutes as Michael Bradley's free kick found Nick Hagglund inside the box for a diving header that went just over the crossbar.

Gilberto also had an opportunity to be the hero, but he turned a header just over the net from eight yards after a cross from Defoe.
