Final Score:.....Toronto FC......1..........Colorado Rapids.........0......

Attendance was announced as 21836 on this hot afternoon with a bright sun in the south. This game was played very early in the day because the CBC network that was broadcasting this game was committed to showing the World Cup 3rd Place game later in the afternoon.

TFC were really hanging on at the end of the game and brought back reminders of their bad habits of last year of giving up goals in the last 15 minutes of games and ultimately missing the playoffs last season.

Man of the Match (who is always a TFC player) was Dan Gargan for his stong defensive work. Before the game Nick LaBrocca was named the Esquire Player of the Month for his charity work.

TFC stretch their unbeaten run in all competitions to ten. This was a very important win because it marks their first win (after three ties) in their home stretch. Their next game is away against the expansion team Philadelphia Union.
