On a night when Vancouver Whitecaps rookie Darren Mattocks served notice that he has every intention of being the MLS Rookie of the Year this season, it was a seasoned veteran who stole the show late.
Terry Dunfield punished the team that traded him away a year ago, scoring a stoppage-time winner to give Toronto FC a 3-2 victory over the Whitecaps at BMO Field on Wednesday.
Dunfield's last-second strike canceled out a memorable night for Mattocks, who scored two goals on the night, including a jaw-dropping header that saw him jump over two TFC players to score.
It was a good night for rookies, with TFC rookie midfielder Luis Silva finding the net to make the score 1-1 in the second half. Torsten Frings gave TFC a 2-1 lead with his own tally before Mattocks' acrobatic equalizer.
The Whitecaps looked set for a road point before Dunfield skied to head home a Frings corner kick for the winner.
The victory improved Toronto FC's unbeaten run in Canada to five matches.
Here are the match highlights:
