Toronto FC won their first match of the MLS season, 2-0 against Inter Miami on Saturday night at BMO field.  Canadians Jonathan Osorio and Mark-Anthony Kaye each scored in the second half to give the Reds their first W, to go along with two draws and a loss. The team currently sits in the eight seed of the Eastern Conference with 5 pts.

Toronto netted their first goal in the 48th minute on a beautiful finish by Osorio. Mark-Anthony Kaye sent one into Federico Bernardeschi on the edge of the penalty box and the Italian patiently waited for Richie Laryea to fly past before getting him the ball. Laryea in turn was able to flick one low across the goal where Osorio was able to chip it in. It was Osorio’s 59th career goal for TFC.

Mark-Athony Kaye iced the game with a 69th minute goal, via a redirection off a Bernardeschi free kick. From there the match was relatively quiet with the Reds winding out the clock to post a 2-0 shutout.

Miami came into the match with a record of 2-2-0 and had only conceded one goal in their first three games.  

As the team’s first win of the season, the match was pivotal for hopes of Toronto making the postseason. Italian star winger Lorenzo Insigne and Norwegian forward Adama Diomande remained sidelined for the match and are expected to miss a couple more weeks at the least. The fact that the Reds could post a win without two of their most important players bodes well for them going further in season.
