Final Score:.....Toronto FC Reserves.....2.....FC Dallas Reserves.....0......

Attendance started off at about 30 and finished with about half that as the weather continued to get colder and windier to about 4 Celsius. This game was played within 45 minutes of the main MLS game ending. (Attendance at that game was declining since before Dallas scored their second goal and those people missed TFC's two goal comeback for a tie).

At 19 minutes Mark Anthony Kaye replaced Emery Welshman (who had not played in the main game). Welshman must have been injured as Kaye came in about two minutes after Welshman had to leave. Kaye is from the TFC Senior Academy team (thanks to one of the few fans for supplying me with that info).

The start of the second half had TFCR Logan Emory hurt in the ankle kicking a ball at the same time as an FCDR player and was upset that it took so long to stop play. Two minutes later TFCR Kaye and FCDR Alex Dominguez were both hurt in each other's sliding tackles as they crashed together. All players ended up continueing the game.

Both teams defenders coverered well; clearing dangers when the ball came into the box. Stefan Frei had only one great save to make at 80 minutes when FCDR Bradlee Baladez blasted a low 12 yard shot from the left that he dived and pushed the ball over the bar.

Ashton Bennett came in at 55 minutes replacing Kaye. While he did score at 84 minutes, he fired shots from about the same distance both before and after the goal well off target.

Rocket Robin

FCD Fabian Castillo (11) and FCD Bradlee Baladez (13) take opening kickoff.

TFC Taylor Morgan (28) wins ball.

FCD Fabian Castillo (11) curls freekick into box.

FCD Bobby Warshaw (16) is in the best position to make this defensive play.

Handshakes after the game.
