Carlos Vela converted from the penalty spot deep into second-half stoppage time for his MLS leading 29th goal of the season to help LAFC salvage a 1-1 draw against Toronto FC at Banc of California on Saturday night.
Vela converted after Chris Mavinga scissored down Latif Blessing inside the penalty area. Referee Ted Unkel initially awarded only a corner, but changed his ruling following a Video Review. The Supporters' Shield leaders are still in a skid of sorts, winless in their last five while drawing four.
Jozy Altidore set up Tsubasa Endoh early for Toronto, who still clinched their place in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs via the Montreal Impact's loss across town against the LA Galaxy.
The Reds are now unbeaten in their last eight MLS matches, their longest such stretch since going 11 without a loss in the 2017 campaign season that ended with TFC claiming their first MLS Cup title. But five of the eight results are draws.
