DC United 1, Toronto FC 1 | 2017 MLS Match Recap

The MLS Eastern Conference's last-place team stymied the frontrunners at RFK Stadium on Saturday night, as Toronto FC were unable to break a 1-1deadlock with D.C. United despite playing more than half the match with a man advantage. 

United stormed out to a surprisingly dominant start and were fully deserving of their 1-0 lead, earned on a Kofi Opare header. But their solid early start vanished in a flash when Lloyd Sam saw a straight red card just before halftime for a high, two-footed challenge on Chris Mavinga. 

TFC drew level just minutes after the break on an ugly scramble in the D.C. penalty box that culminated in an own goal, and looked on course to grind down their hosts and find a late winner. But the Black-and-Red held serve with 10 men, breaking their six-game losing streak as a result.

Goals

  • 6' – DC – Kofi Opare 
  • 52' – TOR – Steve Birnbaum (OG)
