Toronto FC ended their 12 game winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Red Bull New York in a tense affair that saw both sides go down to 10 men in the 2nd half.

After Maurice Edu's goal in the 18th minute put Toronto ahead for the 3rd straight game, the Reds scored on an own goal by New York defender Chris Leitch that proved to be the winner in the game for Toronto. Dane Richards pulled a goal back with 15 minutes to play. Both New York's Joe Vide and Toronto's Andrew Boyens were sent off 3 minute.

Chicago Fire has clinched a tie with Toronto FC after their draw with Chivas USA last weekend.

Toronto go on the road to face Colorado Rapids on Sunday and Los Angeles Galaxy on October 13 and will finish off the regular season against New England Revolution on October 20.
