Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Dominic Oduro's tally late in the first half
was enough to lift the Columbus Crew to a 1-0 victory over Toronto FC on
Saturday at BMO Field.
Columbus was on the front foot early on and had several quality scoring
chances in the first half before finally breaking through three minutes before
On the play, Columbus quickly regained possession following a turnover in
midfield and the ball came to Federico Higuain, who lofted a ball over the
top, splitting the two Toronto central defenders and it fell right to the feet
of the onrushing Oduro, who took a quick touch and beat TFC goalkeeper Joe
Bendik with a toe poke.
Toronto sent recently-acquired veteran Bobby Convey on to start the second
half as they looked for an equalizer, but Toronto was unable to generate many
good opportunities in the defeat. Toronto has lost four straight and is
winless in their last nine consecutive matches.
