Toronto FC looked like they might be able to snap their nine-game MLS winless streak and give the few fans who still made it out to BMO Field on Saturday something to cheer about. Unfortunately for TFC, another late goal allowed provided yet another disappointing finish in a nightmare season.

Philadelphia Union defender Sheanon Williams delivered an 85th-minute equalizer, finishing off an Antoine Hoppenot pass to help the Union escape Toronto with a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

After a scoreless first half, it was Toronto that looked poised for a win when Eric Hassli finished off a Luis Silva pass in the 58th minute. The Union, which enjoyed the edge in possession for much of the afternoon, couldn't muster quality chances on goal until the 85th minute, when Hoppenot slotted a low pass toward the front of goal that found Williams for the equalizer.

The draw pushed Philadelphia's current winless streak to seven matches, and also marked the Union's fourth draw in five matches.

Here are the match highlights:
