                  === TFC tops RBNY to snap losing streak ===
 
 Toronto,  ON (SportsNetwork.com)  - Toronto  FC got  back to  winning ways  on
 Saturday,  snapping  a three-game slide  with a 2-0  victory over Red Bull New
 York at BMO Field.
 
 Jermain  Defoe struck  12  minutes  into Saturday's  affair  when Bradley  Orr
 collected  a giveaway  in the midfield and released the Toronto striker with a
 well-weighted  through ball. The Englishman took the chance with great aplomb,
 smashing his shot past Luis Robles into the roof of the net.
 
 The  Reds  made sure of  the win late  on when Luke  Moore, on his club debut,
 capitalized  on some miscommunication between Robles and Chris Duvall to steal
 the loose ball and slot a shot into the empty net.
 
 It  was Toronto's  first win over New  York since 2009 and one that lifted the
 Reds (4-4-0) to 12 points on the season.
 
 The Red Bulls (3-4-5) have lost two on the bounce to remain on 14 points.
