The game in 100 words (or less): The chances weren’t pouring through Friday night’s clash at BMO Field, but when they come mount for the visitors, Alex Bono was there to save the day for Toronto FC. The TFC goalkeeper entered the match after starter Clint Irwin went down with an apparent knee injury. Sporting KC was the more threatening of the two sides, but the Western Conference club continued its struggles to find a final finish, which the team has only done twice so far this season.
Three moments that mattered
53′ — Bono keeps game scoreless after unexpected entrance — Dom Dwyer was gifted a chance from Michael Bradley after giving it away out of the back but keeper Alex Bono made himself big and kept the shutout.
59′ — Giovinco nearly breaks the deadlock — The Atomic Ant typically does what he wants when he wants, and this was nearly one of those occasions.
70′ — Bono does it again — Sporting KC definitely had the better chances of the two sides but the TFC keeper was always in the right spot to make the save.
Men of the match: Alex Bono
