DeLeon opened the scoring in the 54th minute, and Luke Moore tied in the 60th.

Bradley had a good scoring chance in the 34th minute, but the U.S. midfielder’s shot went wide.

"I felt good, excited to be back," Bradley said. "I’m disappointed that the game went the way it did, because this was a big game against a team close to us in the table and it would have been nice to capitalize."

United improved to 8-5-4, and Toronto dropped to 6-5-3.

Whitecaps 1, Sounders 0 • In Vancouver, British Columbia, Sebastian Fernandez scored on a long shot in the 12th minute in the Vancouver Whitecaps’ 1-0 victory over the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night.

Fernandez took a pass from Pedro Morales and launched a shot about 30 yards out that sailed past goalkeeper Stefan Frei. It was Vancouver’s first goal since June 7, ending a two-game scoring drought.

Major League Soccer-leading Seattle dropped to 11-3-3 with the loss that snapped its winning streak at three games. Vancouver improved to 6-3-7.

The Whitecaps pressed for most of the first half and created several good scoring chances.

In the 19th minute, Morales lofted a free kick from a sharp angle that landed in the box. The ball sat tantalizing for a few seconds, but was cleared before a Whitecap could touch it.
