What a finish.

With the score tied 1-1 (2-2 on aggregate) and the match in the fifth minute of time added on, who else would you expect to step up for Toronto FC?

Sebastian Giovinco.

Sebastian Giovinco was the hero, as his late goal gave Toronto FC a 2-1 win over the Montreal Impact, and their second straight Canadian Championship.

The goal was Giovinco’s second of the match, having also scored in the 54th minute to level the match 1-1.

“It was an important win, because we were playing in front of our fans,” said Giovinco after the match. “It was a perfect ball, and a perfect score, so it’s good.”

I’ll say.

Giovinco won the George Gross Memorial Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the 2017 Canadian Championship, for obvious reasons.

The win marks the sixth time TFC has won the Canadian Championship, more than anyone else, in the 10-year history of the tournament. They beat Vancouver in last year’s final, also with late match theatrics.
