A dubious late-game ejection undid an otherwise solid road showing for Toronto FC Saturday afternoon in Philadelphia.

The Reds will feel hard done by referee Sorin Stoica’s decision to produce a second yellow card against Ashtone Morgan two minutes from time at PPL Park, leading to TFC completely unraveling in the final moments before a 1-1 finish.

Playing with a first-half caution, Morgan entered into a 50-50 header in the 88th minute with the Philadelphia Union’s Sheanon Williams, who immediately went to ground clutching his head deep in TFC’s end.
