Altidore, Giovinco help Toronto FC beat Orlando City 2-1
ORLANDO (AP) — Jozy Altidore scored in the 86th minute, Sebastian Giovinco had two assists and Toronto FC beat Orlando City 2-1 on Wednesday night.
Toronto (12-7-7) won its sixth game during a seven-game unbeaten streak and moved past New York City FC atop the Eastern Conference.
Altidore slipped behind the defense and tapped a feed from Giovinco past goalkeeper Joe Bendik near the top of the box before rolling a left-footer into an open net.
Tosaint Ricketts broke away down the right flank, ran onto a throw in from Giovinco and slipped a right footer past Bendik, inside the near post in the seventh minute to give Toronto a 1-0 lead.
Cyle Larin headed a cross from Kevin Alston off the right post and into the net to tie it in the 56th. Larin has 30 goals in 50 career MLS games.
Bendik had five saves, including a pair of diving stops in the second half.
Orlando City (5-7-13) is winless in its last four.
