Toronto beats New York 2-0

Jun 25, 2009 - 4:25 AM TORONTO(AP) -- Dwayne De Rosario and Pablo Vitti scored either side of halftime to give Toronto FC a 2-0 victory over the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday.

In Major League Soccer's other match, the Colorado Rapids drew 1-1 with FC Dallas at home.

The home side opened the scoring in the 28th minute after a moment of indecision by Danny Cepero allowed forward Vitti to outjump the Red Bulls goalkeeper and nod the ball into the net.

Toronto doubled its lead in the 59th minute when Chad Barrett's cross found De Rosario behind the Red Bulls' defenders. De Rosario easily beat Cepero for his team-leading fifth goal.

The Red Bulls showed their frustration in the 77th minute when Adrian Serioux and Richards clashed at midfield. Both players were issued yellow cards for unsportsmanlike behavior.

The Red Bulls haven't won away from home since a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Galaxy on May 10, 2008.

Toronto, which also beat last-place New York 2-1 on June 13, moved into sole possession of second place in the Eastern Conference.

Omar Cummings scored the equalizer for Colorado in the 84th minute as the Rapids extended their franchise-record unbeaten streak to eight.

David Ferreira opened the scoring for Dallas in the 37th minute, before Cummings, who has four goals in his last five games, dribbled the ball inside the penalty area, where he fired a low shot past goalkeeper Ray Burse.
