Toronto FC lost their starting goalkeeper and best player to injury late in the game, and then they were stunned by a penalty in the final minute of stoppage time in a 3-2 road loss to Orlando City SC at Camping World Stadium on Saturday night.

The visitors thought they escaped with a draw after Justin Morrow scored in the 90th minute to tie the score, 2-2. But with a second-half water break and the injury to Toronto goalkeeper Clint Irwin, there was plenty of stoppage time, and in the eighth minute of stoppage, Toronto’s Drew Moor was called for pulling down Julio Baptista in the box. The referee pointed to the spot, and — after Toronto’s Josh Williams was shown a red card for protests — Kaka blasted the penalty into the roof of the net in the 100th minute of play to give Orlando the win.
