Late goal gives Union a draw in Toronto

Posted: September 17, 2012

SHEANON WILLIAMS' goal in the 85th minute gave the Union a 1-1 draw with host Toronto FC on Saturday.

"It was kind of a free-kick opportunity, the ball got bounced around and we played it out to the other side," Williams said. "Antoine [Hoppenot] made a good run down the side and I just went where the ball was and it went through a couple of bodies and off my foot and into the goal."

Union coach John Hackworth wasn't happy with his team's performance.

"We didn't play very well today, it might have been one of our poorest first-half performances this year," Hackworth said. "It's a little bit frustrating because it felt like our team was ready to play much better than that after the break and we had a good 2 weeks of training. But you have to give credit to Toronto because they made it very difficult on us."

Williams said Hackworth gave the team a piece of his mind at halftime. "Yeah, he let us have it like he should have," Williams said. "We didn't play well in the first half and we know that. He didn't need to say much for us to know that we didn't play the way we are capable of playing."

Eric Hassli scored for Toronto in the 58th minute.

The Union (7-6-13) next plays at PPL Park on Thursday against DC United.
