TORONTO - A nightmare of an MLS season came to a not-so-merciful end for Toronto FC on Sunday.

TFC ended up closing out its domestic campaign on a six-game winless skid (three losses) after suffering a 3-1 defeat to D.C. United at BMO Field. Although Toronto put forth a valiant effort, the final score wasn’t an accurate reflection of how close this match was, as D.C. outplayed their hosts and was unlucky not to win by a larger margin.

The loss means Toronto (6-18-10) finished in second-last place in both the Eastern Conference and overall standings - this from a team that competed for the Supporters’ Shield only a year ago. TFC’s 28-point season total is the third-worst in club history, and lowest since the 2013 MLS campaign when they collected 29 points. The Reds’ six wins is their lowest tally since 2013 (also six wins). With 66 goals against, this was Toronto’s worst-ever defensive campaign.
