TFC III went a goal down after only 10 minutes, yet pulled off a 6-1 victory over Toronto Skillz FC thanks to Shaan Hundal (25', 36', 48') and golden substitute Theodor Corbeanu (86', 88').
Toronto Skillz started the match off in a 3-4-3 formation against TFC III's 4-2-3-1.
The first chance of the match was created by Skillz and Felix Ngha (10') scored with a powerful shot from inside the box leaving TFC III keeper, Sebastian Sgarbossa, no chance.
TFC III came back on level terms as they hit the post and Afram Gorgees (19') found the rebound and slotted home the tying goal.
Six minutes later, a blunder by Skillz defender Mackenzy Kropa put Hundal in a one-on-one situation with keeper Andrew Shahrivar and Hundal rounded the keeper to give the lead to his side. Hundal doubled the lead in the 36th minute from the penalty spot sending the Shahrivar the wrong way.

In the second half Skillz changed their formation to a 3-5-2, but still played in the same way with many risky and unnecessary attempts in their own defensive zone and no clear plan to attack.
Just like the first 45 minutes, TFC III imposed their gameplan and scored three more times in this half.
Hundal completed his hat-trick in the 48th minute when he received a low pass from a corner and sent it into the far bottom corner with a precise shot. Then second half sub Corbeanu finished the game off with two strikes in as many minutes to comfortably give TFC III all three points.
Skillz ended the match with 10 men as Kropa was shown a straight red card for a violent conduct against a rival player.
