The Fire drew a point out of Toronto after trailing 2-0 at half time. A shaky first half featured a disallowed Toronto goal thanks to VAR and Bastian Schweinsteiger was denied on a penalty kick attempt.
Chicago charged back in the second with TFC running out of gas after a mid-week CCL loss in Mexico. The officiating crew decided not to overturn, or apparently even look at potential interference from an offside Nemanja Nikolic on the Fire's first goal and that led to a wild finish with the Fire pushing to equalize.
A little over a minute after Schweinsteiger's pass to Alan Gordon resulted in a mad scramble that came inches from tying the game, the same duo hooked up again to earn the point. Gordon put home a 94th minute shot to get the result.
