TORONTO — Reggie Lambe scored in the 83rd minute and Toronto FC won its fourth straight Canadian Championship, beating the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 on Wednesday night.
Toronto, 0-9 this season in MLS play, won the two-game, total-goal series 2-1. The Reds will represent Canada in CONCACAF Champions League play.

Both teams played a man down after Toronto's Julian de Guzman and Vancouver's Sebastien Le Toux were ejected in the second half.
