A dominant first half by the Union could not translate to more than one goal, and Toronto capitalized in the second half.
The Philadelphia Union entered BMO Field underdogs on the road against the best team in the Eastern Conference.

The Union's road trip continues as they head to Canada to face the best team in the East.

Union head coach Jim Curtin spoke with the media about Ken Tribbett's return to the lineup, CJ Sapong's long scoring slump, and new signing Kevin Kratz.
This weekend, the Philadelphia Union will limp across the border looking for their first win in four games. Awaiting them is a tough Toronto FC team, which beat the Union in Chester a little more than a month ago.
