Columbus goalkeeper William Hesmer became only the second keeper in Major League Soccer history to score a goal when he grabbed the injury-time equalizer in the Crew's 2-2 draw with Toronto on Saturday.

The goal came after a scramble in the wake of a Columbus corner kick. Hesmer settled the ball with a touch and fired home from seven yards out.

"I've seen in happen before back in England but I'm speechless," Toronto FC interim head coach Nick Dasovic said. Columbus had brought Hesmer up to the Toronto FC penalty area in an bid to gain a point.

"I've never gone into the box before, it's my first time ever," said Hesmer, who shot it past his counterpart Milos Kocic.

He became the first goalkeeper to score in an MLS match since New York's Danny Cepero did it against the Crew in 2008.

"You don't see that happen very often," said Toronto midfielder Scott Peterson who scored in the 38th minute to give Toronto the lead. "I thought we should have come out of the game with three points."

Maicon Santos scored the other goal for Toronto and Chad Marshall scored for Columbus.
