Toronto FC vs. FC Cincinnati: 3 takeaways

On the sixth anniversary of winning the Supporters' Shield on home soil, Toronto FC helplessly watched on as FC Cincinnati clinched its first regular-season championship at BMO Field on Saturday night courtesy of a 3-2 victory. 

Toronto (4-17-10) has now lost 14 of its last 15 games in all competitions, including four in a row, and been outscored 36-9 during this run.   

"First and foremost, congrats to FC Cincinnati on a terrific season. They're a very good side that's well balanced. They don't give you a ton and keep coming and punish mistakes. They're a top, top team and have found a way to win in this league," TFC interim coach Terry Dunfield said after the defeat. 

Here are my three major takeaways from Saturday's match.
