Louisville City FC holds off Toronto 3-2, notches 6th straight win

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Louisville City FC wrapped up a string of road games with a 3-2 win in Toronto FC II on Saturday afternoon. 

After falling behind 1-0 in the first half, Louisville rallied in the second half for the second week in a row to take the lead.

Kadeem Dacres netted the first goal off a back heel layoff from Matt Fondy as the two criss-crossed into Toronto's box. 

Both teams seemed frustrated with the officiating of center referee Alexis Vaughan, but both may have benefited from frustration over what may have been perceived as missed calls. 

Toronto keeper Quillan Roberts drew a yellow card for confronting Vaughan after Niall McCabe notched Louisville's second goal. 

Bryan Burke earned the team's third goal when split Toronto's defenders and beat Roberts on the near post. 

Toronto was able to pull one back with ten minutes to go, but City held off the Reds' attack and escape with the team's 6th win in a row. 

With the win, Louisville remains in second place in the Eastern Conference behind Rochester. Their next game will be Wednesday at Louisville Slugger Field against FC Montreal. The game will begin at 7:30 p.m.
