MLS: Toronto FC concede a late goal and settle for a draw


Kevin Arriaga scored in the 89th minute and Minnesota United drew 1-1 with Toronto FC on Saturday.

After conceding a goal from Lorenzo Insigne in the 58th minute, Minnesota got going late in the game.

Toronto central defender Aime Mabika denied Mender Garcia a goal from close range in the 87th minute. Toronto goalie Sean Johnson made a great save on a header, but the ball went to Arriaga, who dodged two defenders and fired a shot that deflected off midfielder Mark-Anthony Kaye.

The TFC held on for the tie as Minnesota attacked relentlessly in stoppage time.

Toronto took the lead in the 58th on a counterattack led by Federico Bernardeschi after Minnesota lost the ball near the TFC goal. The Italian charged in midfield with the ball which eventually found its way to Richie Laryea whose cross crossed the penalty area towards Insigne, who beat Canadian goalkeeper Dayne St. Clair for his second goal of the season .

Toronto FC squandered a chance to score their first victory on home soil this season. Toronto is 0-4-4 on the road.
