Toronto Ties Vancouver 2-2
Disaster struck for the Vancouver Whitecaps allowing Toronto FC a 2-2 draw in last night's opening game of the Canadian Championship final.
Vancouver defender Doneil Henry headed a ball into his own net late in extra time to give Toronto the tie.
Henry was trying to clear a ball chipped across the goal from Jozy Altidore while defending the on rushing Tostaint Ricketts.
It was a shocking end for the Whitecaps who looked to have the game in hand after second-half substitute Erik Hurtado gave Vancouver a 2-1 lead in the 84th minute.
Toronto midfielder Jonathan Osorio and Vancouver striker Kei Kamara had exchanged first-half goals less than two minutes apart.
The Whitecaps were forced to play with 10 men when midfielder Felipe was shown a red card in the 46th minute following a tackle on Toronto's Marky Delgado.
That produced a loud chorus of boos from the crowd of 16,833 at BC Place Stadium.
