Atlanta United was eliminated from the MLS Playoffs last night after falling at home 2-1 to Toronto FC.

One of the biggest moments was in the 11th minute when Pity Martinez drew a penalty kick and Josef Martinez had his attempt at goal saved.

Atlanta United Analyst Jason Longshore felt that was the moment that changed the game.

"It has two effects, it's deflating to Atlanta and gives Toronto life in a match where they didn't look like that had a lot of answers. From there they're able to figure out what they need to do defensively. In this game you made two mistakes, not closing down on long range efforts and don't take advantage of your chances, and you're going home."
