After a frustrating loss to New York City FC, it was Toronto's big three that got the team back on track against the Montreal Impact. All three were dominant as they guided the reds to a dominant 2-1 win over their rivals to the north. In the most important 401 derby to date Toronto FC made a statement. The win puts them back above .500 on the season at 7-6-1.

Jozy Altidore scored the winning goal and created plenty of opportunities throughout the game as he returned to the starting lineup. Micheal Bradley set up Altidore's goal with a pin point pass, something he was delivering all match. Sebastian Giovinco capped it off with a penalty to make sure all three DPs got on the board. Ambroise Oyongo scored for the Impact.

Further analysis of this match will be up shortly, until then enjoy this incredible ball from Bradley that led to the Altidore goal that made all the difference in this match.
