Ghana forward David Accam was on target for Columbus Crew as they were held 2-2 by Toronto FC in the Major League Soccer on Saturday night.

Toronto FC attacker Jonathan Osorio stunned the home fans with his 42nd-minute goal.

But Pedro Santos drew parity for the hosts three minutes after recess.

Columbus Crew fans at the Mapre Stadium went into a jubilant mood in the 82nd minute after David — who replaced Connor Maloney in the 80th minute — drove his low shot pass goalkeeper Quentin Westberg after receiving a simple pass from compatriot Harrison Afful.

But the visitors fought back to equalize through Jozy Altidore’s effort on the 90th-minute mark.

Jonathan Mensah and Afful played the entire duration for the Crew while Ritchie Laryea came on in the 49th minute for Toronto FC.
