2018 Canadian Championship Recap | Vancouver Whitecaps 2, Toronto FC 2

Vancouver Whitecaps FC thought they held the edge in the 2018 Canadian Championship final, as they were leading late in stoppage time, but an own goal at the death left them level with Toronto FC 2-2 in the first leg at BC Place on Wednesday.

Vancouver earned a penalty in the first half when Tosaint Ricketts handled the ball on a corner kick, and Kei Kamara stepped up to convert the spot kick.

But Toronto found an immediate answer, as Jonathan Osorio found a pocket of space and turned in Marky Delgado's cross to tie up the game just two minutes later.

Vancouver were dealt a blow just before halftime, as Felipe was given a straight red card for a studs-up challenge on Delgado.

The game largely slowed down in the second half, but for the second game in a row, Erik Hurtado came off the bench and scored a crucial goal late, as his 84th-minute tally gave Vancouver the lead after the first leg.

It wasn't the winner, however, as Doneil Henry scored a headed own goal in the 96th minute to leave the game level and give Toronto the upper hand heading into the second leg next week.
