Live Commentary

  • Thanks for joining our live commentary. I'm Rudi Schuller (@RudiSchuller on Twitter) and it was my pleasure to bring you commentary from this exciting clash.
  • Game over! 3-3 at BMO Field. Probably a deserved result, but the hosts have to feel like they'll never be able to hold on to a lead again.
  • 90' + 1'
    Near disaster for TFC as Caldwell nods back to Bendik, who JUST gets to the ball before an onrushiong Impact attacker. Would have been two huge gifts in this match by Toronto.
  • 90' + 1'
    Four minutes added.
  • 89'
    OFF THE POST! Brockie gets himself into space 25 yards from goal and his shot beats Perkins but knocks out off the right post! Unbelieveable.
  • 86'
    SubstitutionDaniele Paponi Blake Smith
  • 86'
    The party atmosphere at BMO Field from earlier on has subsided. Now there a tense buzz amongst the 21,700 in attendance.
  • 84'
    SubstitutionReginald Lambe Danny Koevermans
  • 83'
    TFC's living a charmed life right now. Giving up a lot of chances at a time when they traditionally concede.
  • 82'
    CLOSE CALL! Di Vaio curls a free kick around the wall and JUST past the TFC post. Unlucky for Montreal there.
  • 78'
    BIG SAVES! Bendik makes the double save to deny Di Vaio and Felipe. Huge by the TFC 'keeper.
  • 77'
    SubstitutionDarel Russell Jeremy Hall
  • 76'
    The game has come to life as bit as Montreal smells blood. Neither side is very convincing either way, but it's making for some really entertaining football.
  • 75'
    SubstitutionLuis Silva Justin Braun
  • 70'
    Goal Marco Di Vaio
    DI VAIO! Just like that it's all level as the Italian sneaks onto a great through ball into the Toronto area. Montreal has shifted the momentum considerably in the last couple of minutes.
  • 69'
    Goal Hassoun Camara
    Camara pulls the Impact to within one when a long ball gets bobbled around in TFC's area, leaving the Montreal defender with the entire net to shoot at. Game back on.
  • 67'
    More TFC attack, as Brockie gets a nice ball in from Lambe at the top of the 18. The Kiwi's shot is high, though.
  • 66'
    SubstitutionPatrice Bernier Collen Warner
  • 65'
    Free kick to Toronto from 35 yards after Borckie gets hauled down. Silva steps up and fires just past Perkins' right post.
  • 62'
    Yellow Card Jeb Brovsky
  • 62'
    Toronto applying all kinds of pressure now.
  • 61'
    SubstitutionDavy Arnaud Sanna Nyassi
  • 61'
    CLOSE CALL! Russell gets a good strike on Perkins, who parries just past Brockie inside the 6 yard box. The Kiwi was a few inches from tapping in his second of the match.
  • 60'
    TFC using the full width of the field in attack. O'Dea looks to put a cross in, but the ball is blocked and falls to Laba, who shanks it from 35 yards.
  • 54'
    GOAL! Di Vaio sneak in behind everyone in front of TFC goal and easily puts in a shot past Bendik. But no... the striker is OFFSIDE! Still 3-1.
  • 50'
    Free kick to Toronto after Lana was pulled down by Bernier. O'Dea steps up to take it... and his curling shot goes a couple of yards high.
  • 47'
    Yellow Card Gale Agbossoumonde
  • 46'
    Back underway.
  • I'm taking a bit of a food break. Back in a bit!
  • That's the half! It's 3-1 Toronto FC over the Montreal Impact in a shocking game.
  • 45' + 2'
    Felipe is down again, and is not a crowd favourite in Toronto at all.
  • 45' + 1'
    Two minutes added on, although Nesta is still down so there might be more.
  • 45'
    Yellow Card Bobby Convey
    Convey kicks Nesta hard as he tried to get to a loose ball. The Italian is down and requires attention.
  • 41'
    BMO Field crowd getting on the officials for consistently calling against TFC. Toronto's definitely been the more physical of the two sides, so it was bound to happen.
  • 37'
    Yellow Card Darel Russell
    Yellow card to Darel Russell for sliding through Andres Romero. Definitely a foul, but the card is a bit harsh from up here.
  • 34'
    Now Felipe is down at the halfway line. It's a bit early for Montreal to be feeling the effects of this game.
  • 33'
    Bit of a break now as Camara looks to have taken a knock. Nothing serious, though. He's back on the pitch within a minute.
  • 31'
    Toronto's high pressure is putting Impact under all kinds of duress.
  • 27'
    TFC is flying high right now, but you can never count out this potent Montreal offence. There's still LOTS of soccer left to play.
  • 24'
    Goal Darren O'Dea
    3-1 TORONTO! Silva puts O'Dea alone on goal and the captain makes no mistake with his left footed effort! Montreal's backline is in absolute shambles right now.
  • 21'
    Goal Steven Caldwell
    2-1 TFC! Caldwell gets his head on a cross and puts the home side in front. What a barnruner we're getting here tonight.
  • 19'
    CLOSE CALL! Toronto gets a good passing sequence starting with Brockie to Russell, who puts Silva through on goal. The second year player tries to get off a quick snapshot, but Perkins does well to cut down the angle, and Silva's attempt goes just wide.
  • 18'
    Both sides still struggling to connect with passes.
  • 14'
    The action is a bit sloppy so far but end-to-end. There definitiely seems to be more goals in this one.
  • 13'
    Fans still filing into the stadium on a brutal traffic night in Toronto. Most have puzzled reactions as they realize that two gols have been scored already.
  • 6'
    Goal Jeremy Brockie
    As I finish typing that, Brockie finishes a good spell of possession for a TFC goal! 1-1 and game on at BMO Field.
  • 5'
    The match has settled down after that comical start, but Toronto's starting XI has one goal in 2013 so far. Montreal has to feel good here.
  • 1'
    Goal Andrés Romero
    We're barely underway here at BMO Field and already Montreal has gone ahead 1-0! Shocking stuff from TFC here.
  • 1'
    O'Dea tried to head back a ball to Bendik, but his effort went straight to a charging Paponi, who spin around and shot past Agbossoumonde (who had rushed to the goal line in a last ditch attempt to stop the goal.
