Clark dug Marc Rzatkowski’s pass out of his feet, pushed Marky Delgado back and fired a blast into the side net in the 77th minute to equalize. He also made history in the process.

Alejandro Pozuelo put Toronto FC in the lead in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot, placing his low kick to the right of a entrenched Ryan Meara after Dru Yearwood dealt with Ayo Akinola’s attempt in the box.
The Red Bulls pushed for the equalizer and had several chances with an apparent 33rd minute equalizer from Yearwood recalled when Tom Barlow was in an offside position while Barlow and Florian Valot also squandered clear opportunities.
But Clark wouldn’t fail, and his stunning is what earned the Red Bulls a valuable point.
- 23 ‘- TOR – Alejandro Pozuelo (PK) | REGARDER
- 77 ‘- RBNY – Caden Clark | REGARDER
- THE BIG IMAGE: Toronto got used to winning 1-0 – that was the score three times in a five-game winning streak that was interrupted on Wednesday night. How much will these lost points cost in the shield race? For the Red Bulls, a star was born with Clark getting a well-deserved draw.
- TIME OF THE MATCH: There could be nothing other than this miracle of the prodigy. Enjoy it again (unless you are a TFC supporter).
- MAN OF THE MATCH: Clark was decisive in taking his chances, stepping off the bench to “bail us out again,” interim coach Bradley Carnell said after the game. However, Tim Parker is pumping the brakes on the Clark drive train.
Great result! But instead of making noise @iamcadenclark for his goal, let’s encourage him to do his homework
