TORONTO (AP) Toronto FC’s CONCACAF Champions League game with FC Dallas was halted at halftime Wednesday night as lightning forced the game to be postponed.
The game will be replayed Thursday from the start despite FC Dallas holding a 1-0 lead when play was stopped.
Play was stopped for 40 minutes in the first half due to the threat of lightning and other bad weather. The second half never started as conditions worsened and officials decided to call the game.
It’s the second time bad weather has affected a Toronto game this season. The second leg of the Nutrilite Canadian Championship final between Toronto and Vancouver was abandoned May 25 due to lightning and rain. The game was replayed in June.
