TORONTO — Tim Cahill scored twice, including a header in the 89th minute, to give the New York Red Bulls a 2-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday.
Cahill's tiebreaking goal came off a cross by Thierry Henry and gave New York (4-4-2) its second straight win and third in its past four matches.
Jonathan Osorio had the tying goal for Toronto (1-3-4) in the 83rd minute. Ryan Richter played the ball back to Osorio, who paused to tee up a high shot that sailed over New York goalkeeper Luis Robles and glanced off the cross bar and in the net.
"It's not a jinx, it's not a hoax or anything like that, we need personalities to go and clear the ball, and win the ball ... strong personalities who want it in the back," Toronto FC coach Ryan Nelsen said.
Toronto came in off four straight draws in MLS play, including three in which it gave up a lead in injury time. However, Toronto beat Montreal 2-0 on Wednesday in the Canadian Championship series.
