TORONTO - Toronto surrendered two separate leads Saturday and settled for a 2-2 draw with the Chicago Fire at BMO Field.

Gilberto gave Toronto a 2-1 lead in the 78th minute, but the home side was unable to hold on as Quincy Amarikwa tied it at 2-2 in the 90th minute.

A Fire own goal in the first half accounted for Toronto's other goal on the night while former TFC forward Robert Earnshaw had the lone goal for Chicago (4-6-14).

TFC (9-8-6) forward Luke Moore sprung Gilberto, who stepped around Chicago keeper Sean Johnson before depositing his fourth goal of the season.

However, Amarikwa put a cross from Lovel Palmer past a diving Joe Bendik in the final minute to earn the draw.

Earnshaw, who was making his Fire debut, erased a 1-0 deficit in the 70th minute after being subbed in for Sanna Nyassi. On a Grant Ward cross, Earnshaw dove through the area getting his head on the ball to tie the game 1-1.
