Toronto FC knocks off Montreal, Whitecaps advance in Canadian Championship

Toronto FC accomplished something on Wednesday night that they have failed to do in nearly two months: they won a game.

Toronto was victorious for the first time in a match across any competition since the middle of March, topping the Montreal Impact, 2-0, at BMO Field in the second leg of their semifinals series in the Amway Canadian Championship. The first leg, played last Wednesday, ended in a scoreless draw.

Toronto FC played down a man for 73 minutes of the game after Richard Eckersley was shown a red card, but they advanced to the tournament final for a fifth straight year thanks in part to first-half goals from Reggie Lambe and Ryan Johnson.

The Reds' opponent for the tournament final on May 26 will be the Vancouver Whitecaps, who beat NASL club FC Edmonton, 3-1, at BC Place on Wednesday night. Vancouver rode a pair of goals from Sebastien Le Toux and an insurance tally from Darren Mattocks to claim the result that saw them advance on aggregate, 5-1.

What do you think of Toronto FC's win over the Impact? Do you see them building on this victory? Expecting the Whitecaps to defeat TFC in the Canadian Championship final?
