•Toronto comes into this match with a two-match undefeated streak following a 1-1 draw with Saint Louis FC

but in stoppage time Shaan Hundal popped up to score a late equalizer, salvaging a point.

•Toronto won possession, with 55.1 percent of the ball and led the shot count 13-8 but couldn’t get 
the goal until stoppage time despite those numbers.

against both the Eastern Conference's second-place Charlotte Independence and third-place 
Charleston Battery in the month of August.

to bounce back from defeat in their previous outing.

just three minutes later reopened the door for Rochester, which scored the resulting penalty through 
Wal Fall before Jochen Graf got the winner in the 55th minute.
