Toronto FC took on the Montreal Impact on Wednesday evening in front of over 22,000 fans at BMO Field. The preliminary round of the Amway Canadian Championship was everything fans could have wanted - and then some.
With Toronto's three designated players out, many expected it to be an uphill battle, with a line-up fueled by the club's youngsters. To the delight of the Toronto FC faithful, the Reds came out strong, with two first-half goals by Jonathan Osorio. The second half was much of the same, as Jordan Hamilton stepped up to the plate and scored his first two goals in competitive play for TFC. They proved to be the game winner and the icing on the cake. The Impact went on to score two late goals in the final five minutes of play, with the game finishing a 4-2 victory for Toronto FC.
