THE BRONX — Reserve Jacob Shaffelburg scored his first-career MLS goal at the 74th minute and Toronto secured its first point on the road this season with a 1-1 tie against NYCFC.

Shaffelburg scored off a through ball from Patrick Mullins at the 74th minute to help Toronto level the score.

Jesus Medina put NYCFC out front when he punched it in the 53rd minute after Toronto keeper Alex Bono failed to wrap up Gudmundur Thórarinsson’s ball on a free kick.

City plays their first home game at Red Bull Arena in New Jersey next Saturday when the club returns to action against Columbus.
