A late goal from Ryan Telfer lifted Toronto to a 2-1 win over Orlando City in MLS on Friday.
Without suspended star Sebastian Giovinco, reigning MLS Cup champions Toronto claimed a much-needed win at BMO Field.
Cristian Higuita had cancelled out Jay Chapman's second-half opener, but the hosts found their winner through Telfer three minutes from time.
After Chapman put away a rebound in the 63rd minute, Orlando equalised through Higuita – who struck from 20 yards.
