Saturday was a day of milestones for Toronto FC, but one mattered more than the rest as the Reds earned their first victory of the season with a 2-1 decision over D.C. United.
TFC’s first victory under new coach Bob Bradley was secured, in part, via goals from Jonathan Osorio (his 50th in all competitions for the club) and Alejandro Pozuelo (his 25th).
