Union clinch playoff spot

Sebastien Le Toux scored in the 43rd minute to lead Philadelphia

to a 1-1 draw against Toronto FC on Saturday, good enough to clinch

the Union’s first playoff berth.

Le Toux scored his team-best 11th goal after receiving a crisp

open pass from Justin Mapp, and the Union extended their unbeaten

streak to eight games (3-0-5).

Ryan Johnson scored for Toronto FC (6-13-14) in the 57th minute.

Toronto FC dropped to 1-9-7 on the road.

The match was played before a crowd of 19,178, tying a PPL Park


All-Star goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon returned for Philadelphia

(11-7-15). Mondragon broke his right ring finger at Real Salt Lake

on Sept. 3.
