Toronto Arrows rally for last-gasp win over San Diego in Major League Rugby play
The Toronto Arrows brought pro rugby downtown on Sunday, delivering a nail-biter in a 23-19 victory over the San Diego Legion.
Steven Ng’s 79th-minute try capped the comeback at Lamport Stadium, ending the Legion’s six-game unbeaten streak in Major League Rugby play.
“My first try of the season. No other way to do it than a game-winner,” Ng, a 21-year-old hooker from Ottawa, said with a wide smile.
The two teams exchanged the lead late in the game.
Trailing 12-9, Toronto went up a man in the 65th minute when San Diego scrum half Nate Augspurger was sin-binned for a high tackle. The Arrows took advantage immediately with Uruguayan international Leandro Leivas crossing the line in the 67th minute.
