Yet, after taking a 1-0 lead at the half, thanks to a net from Deandre Kerr, the crowd favorites left their rivals of the day, tied the game, and then took the lead, in less than a quarter of hour.

Carlos Teran tied the game first, before seeing Kacper Przybylko give the visitors the lead.

Alejandro Pozuelo took matters into his own hands afterwards. He easily converted a penalty in the 70th minute before beating goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina with a shot with major league precision. His powerful shot, in the 78th minute, hit the underside of the crossbar head-on. The ball immediately bounced just inside the net, before coming out immediately.

The Ontario team climbed to 12th place in the Eastern Conference – out of 14 teams – with 15 points in 14 games.

In short

In New York, a brace from Brazilian Luquinhas helped the Red Bulls beat DC United 4-1. The New York team thus has the same number of points as CF Montreal in the standings, 23 in 14 duels.

At Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Columbus Crew scored twice in the first half to defeat Atlanta United 2-1.

At Gilette Stadium, the New England Revolution extended their unbeaten streak to five games as they played out a 1-1 draw against the Philadelphia Union.
