Harden Hospitalized, Garcia To Be Assessed

TORONTO – Toronto FC’s win over Montreal Impact at BMO Field Wednesday night came at a cost. Ty Harden and Nick Garcia both left the match in the first half due to injury.

Harden was injured in a scramble for Toronto FC’s first goal scored by Dwayne De Rosario. He was taken to hospital to get stitches for a gashed leg. Coach Preki told the media after the match that he expects that Harden could be out of action for a while. Harden returned to BMO Field following the end of the match having received 22 stitches.

Nick Garcia was hurt in an incident that saw Impact striker Roberto Brown sent off for violent conduct. The veteran defender appeared to take a blow to the head and will be assessed further on Thursday.
