NYCFC upsets Toronto FC 3-1, advances to MLS quarterfinals

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Jesus Medina scored in the fifth minute, Valentin Castellanos doubled the lead early in the second half and Maxi Moralez provided the clinching goal late as New York City FC beat Toronto FC 3-1 on Sunday night to advance to the quarterfinals of the MLS is Back tournament.

NYCFC was the last team to qualify for the knockout round of the tournament thanks to Houston's draw against the LA Galaxy in the next-to-last match of the group stage. A late Galaxy goal knocked out the Dynamo and kept NYCFC in the tournament as the final third-place team to advance.

Despite being the last team in, NYCFC was the dominant side in the round of 16 matchup. NYCFC had just two goals all season and started with four straight losses before beating Inter Miami in the final group stage game. They doubled that goal total in less than an hour against Toronto and got a bit of revenge for losing to the Reds in last year's MLS Cup playoffs. (MORE)
