TFC II fall late in Georgia

A stoppage time goal denied the Young Reds a point

South Georgia Tormenta FC

Despite leading for a large part of the match, Toronto FC II lost their second straight match on Sunday night.

Toronto FC II took the lead in the 14th minute, as Jordan Perruzza scored an excellent left-footed strike from just inside the 18-yard box. It found its way into the top corner, giving the visitors an early lead.

Charlie Dennis responded for the home side in the 28th minute with a hard, low shot that TFC II goalkeeper Kevin Silva couldn't control.

Just eight minutes later, Patrick Bunk Andersen gave the Young Reds the lead again with a rising header that is up for USL League One Goal of the Week, and TFC II entered the break up 2-1.

Marco Micaletto would tie the game for Tormenta FC again in the 72nd minute from the penalty spot, giving the home crowd a boost of energy.

After TFC II defender Terique Mohammed was shown a red card a few moments later, Tormenta kept pushing for a winner and in the third minute of stoppage time, they'd find just that:
