Final Score:.....Toronto FC......1..........Arabe Unido.........0........

Attendance was not announced but CONCACAF listed 10385. The crowd looked only about the size of the Canada vs China women's friendly September 30th when 5000+ was announced except tonight the south end was filled. The weather was cold and some of the AU players wore gloves.

Players are not announced for Concacaf games and there are no national anthems played. A rendition of "O Canada" was started up by the fans.

There were four players that began at the TFC Academy at the beginning of the season. Doneil Henry and Nicholas Lindsay have moved up to the full first team. Oscar Cordon and Ashtone Morgan were also here within a week of the Academy playing two CSL quarterfinal playoff games to end their season. All these players played well tonight. Television commentators said that Arabe Unido used six players on their own team that were under 21 for this meaningless game as both teams knew they were eliminated from advancing to the next round of the Concacaf Championships.
