Morrow scores pair to help keep TFC's home unbeaten record intact

Justin Morrow scored a pair of second half goals to lead Toronto FC past the Portland Timbers 4-1 on Saturday night.

Victor Vazquez and Marco Delgado scored the other goals for Toronto (13-3-8), which remains unbeaten at home this season (9-0-3). The Reds are also unbeaten in six straight overall (3-0-3).

Diego Valeri spoiled Alex Bono’s bid for a clean sheet with a goal in the 89th minute for Portland (9-9-7), which had its three-game unbeaten streak snapped.

The Timbers had an opportunity to open the scoring early in the 55th minute off a nice one-touch header from Darren Mattocks, but David Guzman put his shot, from just inside the area, over the bar.

TFC responded two minutes later as Morrow picked up the loose ball outside the area and put his left-footed strike up and over Portland goalkeeper Jeff Attinella for his fourth goal of the season.

Vazquez gave Toronto a 2-0 in the 72nd minute by re-directing a Sebastian Giovinco cross past Attinella for his fifth goal of the season.
