A look at the milestones in Toronto’s FC’s late comeback win at Orlando City

By The Canadian Press on April 28, 2024.

A look at some of the milestones achieved by Toronto FC in its 2-1 comeback win at Orlando City on Saturday:

– The late goals from Tyrese Spicer (87h minute) and Prince Owusu (90 minute) marked the second time in club history that TFC has scored both the game-tying and game-winning goals in the 87th minute or later. The club previously did it on July 27, 2013, in a 2-1 win over Columbus (Jonathan Osorio in the 87th minute and Andrew Wiedeman in the 94th).

– Prince Owusu has now scored goals in four consecutive matches (Charlotte FC, New England Revolution, Simcoe County Rovers and Orlando).

– Federico Bernardeschi recorded two assists in a single match for the second time in his TFC career (he also did it March 18, 2023, against Inter Miami).

– The comeback goals, in the space of two minutes 46 seconds, mark the club’s fastest back-to-back MLS strikes since Bernardeschi and Lorenzo Insigne scored a pair in the space of one minute 40 seconds against CF Montreal on Sept. 4, 2022.

– Saturday’s result marked the club’s its first comeback road win since a 2-1 decision at Columbus on May 10, 2017, its first victory after conceding the game’s first goal since a 2-1 win over visiting Philadelphia on April 16, 2022, and the first come-from-behind win since beating Chicago 3-2 at BMO Field on May 28, 2022.
