Larson: Game wrap on TFC’s weekend

TORONTO - Danny Koevermans’ Lambeau Leap into BMO Field’s south stand established how much Toronto FC’s first points of the MLS season meant to the struggling target man — and to the loyal contingency that continue to support the embattled Reds.

“It’s a big relief,” head coach Aron Winter said of TFC’s 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union Saturday. “Finally some other questions from (reporters).”

Those questions changed two minutes from full-time when Koevermans met Nick Soolsma’s near-post cross for an easy finish after his initial attempt came back off Philly ’keeper Chris Konopka.

The reaction from those in attendance was as telling as the Dutchman’s celebration. Despite TFC opening the season winless in its first nine games — one short of matching Salt Lake for most consecutive losses in a row — the 18,227 in attendance reacted as if Koevermans’ winner came at the close of a Cup final.
