Extra-time Goal Gives Toronto Tie At First-place Atlanta

MLS goal-scoring leader Josef Martinez scored twice for Atlanta United, but an extra-time goal from Tosaint Ricketts helped visiting Toronto FC to earn a 2-2 tie Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Atlanta United controlled the match for most of the second half, but a late run by Toronto FC made things even. Ricketts took a cross from Jonathan Osorio after the 90th minute and converted on a sliding shot well out of the reach of Atlanta FC goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Tempers escalated at the final whistle as Toronto FC defender Chris Mavinga was given a red card for a shove to the head of Leandro Gonzalez Pirez and could be facing additional league discipline.
