Toronto FC II was unable to comeback from a 3-1 deficit, falling to Louisville City FC 3-2 at the Ontario Soccer Centre.
Mo Babouli and Jordan Hamilton were the goal scorers for the Reds.
With the loss TFC II’s record falls to 4-10-3.
With the win Louisville extends their winning streak to six games.
Louisville City FC leading scorer Matt Fondy had an unbelievable opportunity to open up the scoring early on but he skied his shot over an open net.
TFC II’s Mo Babouli opened up the scoring in the 21st minute of the match.
A miskicked clearance by Louisville City FC landed at the feet of Babouli who walked in and beat goalkeeper Scott Goodwin with a high shot at the near post.
A Louisville defender appeared to give up on the play believing Babouli was offside but replay showed that the ref made the correct call as the ball that was played to Babouli was off a Louisville foot.
Midfielder Kadeem Dacres put Louisville City FC on level terms in the 58th minute. Dacres made some space for himself and beat Roberts from the top of box with a well-taken low strike.
Ten minutes later Louisville took the lead. Niall McCabe got on the loose ball after their corner was cleared and smacked it on target beating an unprepared Roberts.
Roberts was livid and let the referee know as he was obstructed on the corner kick that led to the goal. Roberts was given a yellow card for his antics.
The visitors extended their lead through Bryan Burke in the 73th minute. Burke burst through three TFC II players on the right side of the pitch and beat Roberts short side with a low shot.
Your Reds got one back in the 81st minute from forward Jordan Hamilton.
Babouli pushed the ball out wide to Sal Bernal who put in a perfectly weighted left-footed cross that was met by a Jordan Hamilton header.
Louisville’s goalkeeper went to collect the header but it bounced off his hand and into the net.
In the end the visitors were able to hold onto the one goal lead and give TFC II it’s fifth loss at the Ontario Soccer Centre this season.
