FC Dallas beats Toronto FC 1-0 behind Urruti, Gonzalez
TORONTO (AP) Maxi Urruti scored in the 11th minute and Jesse Gonzalez made a series of big saves in FC Dallas’ 1-0 victory over Toronto FC on Friday night.
Gonzalez got a hand to Jonathan Osorio’s shot to preserve the victory as seven minutes of added time made for a wild finale. Referee Chris Penso issued three yellow cards to Dallas (5-1-5) for time-wasting, two in stoppage time.
Defending MLS champion Toronto (3-7-1) dominated long stretches, but couldn’t beat Gonzalez.
