One For The Ages!
What a game! What a night! It truly was one for the ages and a real nail biter to boot! After years of having to put up with all the jokes and scorn about how we’ll never be anything, TFC have finally arrived.
Last night it took extra time, but it also took a lot of resilience and never give up attitude. After losing in Montreal 3-2 last week all we had to do was to win 1-0 in front of a sold-out BMO Field crowd. Twice Montreal almost spoiled the party, but when it ended 3-2 for TFC we were left with another 30 minutes, plus the possibility of penalties, to decide who would be the Eastern champions. We took over in extra-time and with two goals in two minutes the tie was all but over. Even losing Giovinco in extra time to injury didn’t stop us.
Now on to the MLS Cup Final at BMO on Saturday 10 December against Seattle. It’s going to be another great night!
If you missed the game, or want to relive it again, here are the highlights:
