If ever there was a time that Toronto FC needed a big win Saturday night was it.
Mired in controversy on and off the field, TFC put a very trying week behind them with a well-deserved 2-1 win over D.C. United at BMO Field.
Deandre Kerr and Kosi Thompson both scored, while Lorenzo Insigne picked up his first two assists of the campaign.
With the win, Toronto (3-5-7) snapped a four-game winless skid in MLS and collected only its second victory in 12 contests in all competitions. The Reds also ended their goal drought in league play at 418 minutes.
Here are my three major takeaways from Saturday's game.
