MLS Game Summary - New York at Toronto FC



(Saturday, June 30, 2012)

From The Sports Network

Final Score: New York 1, Toronto FC 1

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Toronto FC is not a pushover anymore.

Danny Koevermans had his eighth goal of the season as Toronto FC tied Red Bull New York, 1-1, at BMO Field to extend its MLS unbeaten streak to four matches.

Toronto (2-10-3) started the season with nine straight losses, but has totaled all nine of its points over its last six games - the last five under new coach Paul Mariner.

Toronto defeated the Montreal Impact, 3-0, on Wednesday for its first win with Mariner as coach and followed that with a draw against New York, which started the night tied atop the Eastern Conference.

New York (9-4-4) extended its own undefeated run to three matches, but slipped two points behind D.C. United in the East table. D.C. downed Montreal, 3-0, on Saturday.

Both goals were scored inside 6 minutes, as Jan Gunnar Solli directed a cross from Brandon Barklage into the right side of the net less than 4 minutes into the match for New York and Koevermans answered just minutes later.

Torsten Frings swung a corner kick in from the right side to the far post, and Koevermans reached the ball and headed under the crossbar for his fourth goal in his last three matches.

Both sides had a few chances to secure full points, as Ryan Johnson had a shot cleared off the line for TFC and Kenny Cooper hit the post for New York, but a draw was in the cards after an even second half.

Toronto visits FC Dallas on Wednesday for its next game, while New York visits the New England Revolution on July 8.
