VAR handed LAFC a last-gasp penalty that Carlos Vela converted in second-half stoppage time in a 1-1 draw with Toronto FC on Saturday night at Banc of California stadium.
Toronto opened the scoring after an end-to-end opening 20 minutes when Jozy Altidore picked up a loose ball at the top of LAFC's penalty area and played a nice pass to Tsubasa Endoh whose low shot crept just inside Tyler Miller's far post.
After Toronto FC squandered an early two-goal lead, Jonathan Osorio got the go-ahead score in the 70th minute for a 3-2 victory over the visiting Colorado Rapids on Sunday.
Toronto (12-10-9, 45 points) is tied with D.C. United for fourth in the Eastern Conference with three games left.
Colorado (10-15-6, 36 points) had won in its first three games with former Toronto assistant Robin Fraser as head coach. The Rapids are seven points out of the Western Conference playoffs with three games remaining.
