Toronto FC carried on right where they left off before the all-star break. Red hot. In the eighth minute, Sebastian Giovinco, from over 30 metres deep dipped a ball from the right side of the field, which floated and curled right into the bottom left corner of the net. The goal was credited to Tsubasa Endoh, who very lightly deflected the ball, prompting Giovinco to pretend to hit Endoh, making him flinch before embracing each other in celebration.

Giovinco continued to have his finger prints all over the game, scoring just 16 minutes later off of a beautiful give-and-go with Canadian, Jay Chapman. The Italian celebrated, sticking his tongue out to the crowd before emphatically jumping in the air and celebrating with his teammates.

Designated player, Jozy Altidore, played the role of the lethal substitute once more as he came into the game in the 57th minute for Jordan Hamilton. He looked strong for Toronto and put the cherry on the cake for TFC in the 87th minute, scoring his first goal of the season.

After the game, the team celebrated winning the Trillium Cup with the supporters in south end of the stadium. This is the team's second cup of the year after winning the Amway Canadian Championship in dramatic fashion in Vancouver.

With the win, Toronto FC now sits tied for third-place in the MLS's Eastern Conference behind the two New York squads. TFC will be back in action on Wednesday night at BMO Field against Real Salt Lake at 7:00 p.m.
