The Young Reds scored three unanswered goals to beat South Georgia Tormenta FC on Friday afternoon

Toronto FC II

Toronto FC II bounced back from their defeat in Tucson, dominating South Georgia Tormenta FC at the BMO Training Ground last Friday afternoon.

Toronto FC II were the better team in the opening half hour, and were rewarded in the 28th minute. After an inch-perfect cross from Griffin Dorsey, Matthew Srbely brought the ball down, stepped around a defender, and fired the ball into the top left corner to open the scoring.

The Young Reds doubled their lead less than ten minutes later.

After running onto an excellent through ball by 16-year-old Jayden Nelson, Jordan Perruzza took a few steps toward the goalkeeper before curling the ball into the bottom corner.

South Georgia came close to scoring a couple of times, but were mostly limited to long-distance efforts that didn't trouble TFC II goalkeeper Yann-Alexandre Fillion.

Toronto FC II kept threatening, however, and sealed all three points in the 78th minute.

After receiving the pass from a corner, Griffin Dorsey curled a cross over the South Georgia backline, finding Patrick Bunk-Anderson. The Danish centre-back got a foot to the ball, putting it in the back of the net for his fourth goal of the season.

Toronto FC II's next game is on Friday, July 19th, against Lansing Ignite FC. It will be played at the BMO Training Ground, with kickoff scheduled for 4 pm.
