Saturday's battle for the worst team in Major League Soccer ended with the Toronto FC defeating the Philadelphia Union, by a score of 1-0.

The man who claimed that Toronto FC was the worst team in the MLS, ironically was the difference in the game. From The Brotherly Game:

Danny Koevermans, Toronto's Designated Player striker, managed to put away a rebound off of a Chris Konopka save to put the home team ahead in the 88th minute. The former Dutch international had lamented during the week leading up to the game about how Toronto was the world's worst team, but he helped to end the team's MLS troubles with two shots on goal.

Toronto out-shot Philly 18-11, including 7-2 in shots on goal. Fouls were fairly even at 13-12.

Despite the loss, the Union won the time of possession battle.
