HARRISON, New Jersey (AP) — Benoit Cheyrou scored on a diving header in the 70th minute and Toronto FC salvaged a 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls on Friday, ending the Canadian team’s franchise-record winning streak at six games.

Toronto FC (7-1-5) had three good scoring chances in the final 10 minutes for the first seven-game winning streak in the MLS since the 2012 season. Jozy Altidore’s penalty kick was blocked by Luis Robles in the 81st minute. On the previous play, Altidore tried to chip over the goalkeeper but it went wide and Tosaint Ricketts was knocked down in the penalty area chasing the loose ball.

In the 84th minute, Ricketts controlled a long pass with his chest on a breakaway but his shot hit the crossbar. Then Ricketts appeared to score in the 89th but it was called back for an offside call.

New York (5-6-2) ended a three-game losing streak. In the 38th minute, Sacha Kljestan’s free kick was headed across goal by Fredrik Gulbrandsen and Wright-Phillips finished it with a bicycle kick to open the scoring.
