TORONTO – Friday was Toronto FC’s annual “Fan Appreciation Night,” but the Reds didn’t give their suffering supporters much to appreciate.
A solid opening 45 minutes by TFC gave way to a dire second half in which they were thoroughly outplayed before suffering a 1-0 defeat to Inter Miami before an announced crowd of 27,703 at BMO Field.
TFC seemed destined to earn a draw before Gonzalo Higuaín scored in the 86th minute to seal the victory for the visitors. The Reds have now lost four in a row, and are winless in five.
Already eliminated from playoff contention, Toronto (9-17-7) looks set to finish 13th in the Eastern Conference (out of 14 teams) with only one game remaining in the campaign.
