Toronto FC rallies to tie New York City FC 2-2

National Sports

TORONTO (AP)Richie Laryea and Alejandro Pozuelo scored in the second half to help Toronto FC tie New York City FC 2-2 on Saturday night.

Santiago Rodriguez and Ismael Tajouri-Shradi scored for New York City (8-5-4) in the first half.

Toronto interim coach Javier Perez replaced captain Michel Bradley and star striker Jozy Altidore with Ralph Priso and Ifunanyachi Achara to open the second half. The 34-year-old Bradley had played every minute of the previous 17 games.

The moves gave Toronto (3-9-6) an immediate boost, with Laryea scoring in the 49th minute and Achara setting up Pozuelo in the 55th. Priso, who turned 19 last week, played a key part in both goals.

NYFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson had to make a point-blank save on substitute Nick De Leon to preserve the tie.
