And to -- draft from. Ontario Canada where the revolution had just time. Move in -- style story. -- -- -- -- -- The -- really took it to Toronto in the second half battling back creating chance after chance and finally got their just reward. The 94 minute with the tying goal they did they are pushing now why didn't cross after cross after cross. Finally -- is balance act like you said. Double great prices too great finishes the ball off the one point while the man of the moment is the guy who scored that goal in stoppage time. Left back Chris Tierney with his second goal of the year. Chris are congrats guys really deserve to get back into that game the way it did and now you made it count the hatter late in the match. Yeah it was a it was a tough match tough first half forest you know you have to -- that we relation of south. We're happy with the fight back Darren what we'll take the point. I'm wrong and get through next -- prison if they feel looks like you have a lot of space and both have to get down the left wing. Field seem slick with that he anything going on out there. You know that they went down just for the game so it's little office to get our fifa. Yeah -- in the reason wise this is vote might have been. -- finally in the second half for Saturday from good service and and start getting some real chances Chris you tweet it out earlier that you love this city affect your your first two career assists. Here the MO field coming into the league a few years ago and now you scored this important goal talk us through the -- and tell us why you like to -- the or first on the goal it was a serious a great ball and. From -- that I think you saw a lot of room sort of crashing toward the near post so I try to make my run. You know kind of -- towards him in certain prey upon us and headed down. But -- of course. We have played in Toronto I've always -- playing a great atmosphere. It's always fun you know these fans and I get behind their team and it's it's always fun though to -- it sounds. Or Chris are great performance good result and appreciate the time okay thanks for us. Yea you know it's impressive to see Tierney your lockdown -- left back position now for pretty much the whole season. There are some people who doubted his ability to be a starter in this league he's not. Track meet faster ways that his counterpart on the reds -- Kevin Alston is he's really midfielder by trade. Played six or seven positions for the revolution but he just has that game since toughness can when he said. Crushed a ball his left foot and he's a great cross. -- plays come to a zone this series like you -- solidified that left back position. There's there's two different types of backs in the league there's a defensive one B one type of -- back and then there's an offensive overlapping run he seems that he's definitely. He has the one side and he's done a ton better on his defensive one B once -- Are with us now is the head coach Jay heaps. Even though you want to three points away from home the way that unfolded with you guys banging on the door and rescue your point have to feel good going in the locker room with your team. But no it doesn't mean it was tough to ask for us in the first half we we literally gave them two goals. They teaching it to scored two goals and so. You hate to do that yourself what you know halftime we had a pretty spirited talk cannot. It in that the key to this team was don't give up with the most points it was not to rush too much you could see is we were patient. Sort of blew them -- one -- in their half with a not a little bit and finally there is behind the flow he would sight here on certain sides. But he said it -- -- out that definitely the way it looked the only way to break him down was to open up that spaces but we'll that a great second half of -- a lot of good crosses and Tierney on the and then on the left side as well. That night it was it was a good performance from both backs. You know unfortunately Kevin goes down and -- flood and it was time to warm ups flow like it goes in there. And it showed that guy he's really you know when you have to have some positioning to put someone in it can change a game like he did and that's really important. Jay you coach against a Paul matter for the first time. And has been terrible feeling the Toronto locker room. Of for them -- -- two in a row but the over the glass half full -- a look at this and now drawing games and maybe they. Yours to lose can you see a difference since Paul took over the Toronto team not absolutely each and see how they come out and in. The first -- we were the most thing we talked almost the start of the game I guess they're spirited team. And and instill with -- remains an end in you could see DePaul sort of pushed him back tired now. He's got out of action Morgan pushing tiny put two Great -- and create two goals and that's often Paul you know having a good energy -- pushing outside players to give pause and their big time players. Yeah I was definitely is hard to pick between the two are you two the most competitive guys in history event well as they say that technical Larry is a congratulations on the result in thanks for the time I think that's. Well it's it's a funny game you know two weeks ago after the match. GA not surprisingly subdued. In the press conference this time you could see there's a little buzz and it's a different -- when you get the point away from home like you said. In the closing of the live telecasts are let's take a look at the highlights their -- even going back to the fourth minute when -- -- did -- Conceded rather -- Good morning getting bored and I. Over Lindsay is a danger to find. -- I don't know. -- first started the year four. Another good -- You bird and the red with the breakdowns do not think 71 minute opened -- first thing today. Rick Snyder this job and that's the best two more. Behind. And we'll study period period it just drifted right -- that are close. It would make it more. At the time. Grab some putts. -- with a big second half ended up with -- bad shots fourteen to eleven and shots on goal. Nine minutes has 6062 are trying to chop up the game 141000 total. Before yellow cards shooting. Each team as the reds with the overall possession. Percentage advantage. 6535. So pretty comprehensive reforms of the -- other than the fact that.
