TFC defeats D.C. United after extra time to advance in MLS playoffs - Sportsnet.ca
Toronto FC is headed to the Eastern Conference semifinals following a 5-1 win over D.C. United after extra time at BMO Field on Saturday in their first-round playoff matchup.
Richie Laryea, Nick DeLeon and Jonathan Osorio, who completed a brace, wrapped up the victory in the first half of extra time after Lucas Rodriguez's 93rd-minute equalizer for D.C. Marky Delgado opened the scoring for TFC.
TFC emerged victorious without forward Jozy Altidore and defender Omar Gonzalez, who both missed out on Saturday's game due to injury. However, the Reds will have an added concern after centre-back Chris Mavinga limped off early in the second half of extra time.
Toronto will now face the East's top seed, New York City FC, on the road on Wednesday night in the conference semis. The winner of that match will progress to the Eastern Conference final on Oct. 30.
