Toronto FC and the Vancouver Whitecaps split the spoils in a 2-2 all-Canadian MLS clash on Saturday.

Jonathan Osorio scored the late equalizer in the 83rd minute to ensure Toronto a share of the points.

After Toronto scored the opening goal – from a free-kick into the box with defender Luke Singh cleaning up a blocked shot to record his first career goal – the Whitecaps took the lead in the second.

First, Vancouver's Lucas Cavallini was taken down in the box with Cristian Dajome scoring from the spot.

Then, Any Rose put Vancouver ahead with a well placed header.

With the action in high gear, Osorio pounced on a loose ball to level the game at 2-2.

Vancouver had a chance to win in stoppage time but Toronto keeper Alex Bono managed to get a diving touch to deny Ryan Raposo - who came racing down the middle to get a shot off from inside the box - at the death.
