Gilberto, seen here against The New England Revolution, found the net himself nine minutes after the break, snapping TFC's six-game winless skid.
Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) -
Gilberto scored a goal and assisted on another as Toronto FC coasted to a 3-0 win over Chivas USA at BMO Field on Sunday.
Gilberto set up the opening goal for Jackson in the 23rd minute, and after Luke Moore made it 2-0 to the hosts on the stroke of halftime, Gilberto found the net himself nine minutes after the break, snapping TFC's six-game winless skid.
The result moves Toronto to within three points of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, while Chivas has lost its last six games.
It was a clever backheel from Gilberto in the 23rd minute inside the area that allowed Jackson to take a touch and drive a shot toward goal that took a deflection on its way past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.
