TORONTO — Darel Russell capped a remarkable comeback with a goal in the 90th minute, giving Toronto FC a 2-2 draw with FC Dallas in a Major League Soccer match Saturday.
Russell hammered a right-footed shot from just outside the penalty area off the post and in to beat goalkeeper Raul Fernandez. It was redemption for the fullback, who was victimized on both Los Angeles goals in a 2-2 draw last weekend.
Substitute Justin Braun assisted on the tying goal after scoring one himself in the 85th minute when defender Matt Hedges failed to clear the ball.
Andrew Jacobson and Blas Perez scored for league-leading FC Dallas, which had won three straight, including two consecutive shutouts. Braun's goal ended the shutout streak at 272 minutes.
