Toronto FC have finally made it back over the line.
Using goals from Marky Delgado and Justin Morrow, TFC came from behind to defeat the Montreal Impact 2-1 Saturday night at BMO Field. It marked the first time Toronto has jumped among the top seven Eastern teams since May 6.
Playing their first game under new head coach Wilmer Cabrera, the Impact broke the deadlock five minutes into the second half when former Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic ripped a 25-yard shot past a diving Quentin Westberg to open his MLS account.
Toronto did not back down, and the equalizer finally came. Second-half substitute Alejandro Pozuelo sent a dangerous ball into the box that Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush punched away, but the ball fell to Delgado, whose shot from outside the box found its way through Bacary Sagna's legs and in.
The home side took the lead with less than 10 to play, when Michael Bradley, Jozy Altidore and Justin Morrow combined on a quick play, resulting in Morrow's shot going over the goal line after Bush nearly saved it.
- THE BIG PICTURE: Toronto's late push continues -- now having taken points in six of their last eight (4-2-2) -- and finally jumping over the playoff line for the first time since May 6. Montreal, however, have now slid below the line. They've scored first in three of their last four games, though only have one point to show for it.

- MAN OF THE MATCH: Toronto had well-balanced attach with 10 players getting shots off, but Morrow's persistence in going forward paid off with his game-winner.
