And top-seeded TFC will be able to roll out its big guns — Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco — back from suspension when the series switches to BMO Field on Nov. Toronto had six shots in the first half and one in the second, all off the mark.

You may not be surprised to learn that this isn’t the first time that Stanford’s marching band has nearly gotten booed off the field for its antics. I hope that contempt was able to keep the team and their marching band warm on what was likely a very icy flight back to the Bay Area.

The night looked destined to be one of Toronto FC’s worst performances in recent history. Instead, it turned into one of the team’s biggest comebacks.

Yamil Asad scored twice, while Paul Arriola and Darren Matt had one apiece for United.

D.C. United arrived in Toronto with just one win in their last five games, while Toronto had lost just one of its previous four matches. And for a horrible first half, Toronto looked nothing like an MLS Cup champion in front of a disgruntled crowd of 23,011, disorganized on defence and out of sync on offence.

Asad scored in the 12th minute, finishing a string of a dozen D.C. United tic-tac-toe passes that sliced through Toronto’s jumbled defence.

Arriola doubled the visitors’ lead five minutes later on a counterattack. Toronto FC was pleading for a penalty after Osorio went down in the box, while United was racing the other way. Arriola headed in a cross from Zoltan Stieber, and then put a finger to his lips to shush the BMO Field crowd — an unnecessary gesture, as the crowd was already in stunned silence.
