Giovinco’s early goal holds for Toronto’s 1-0 win over DC
WASHINGTON (AP) — Sebastian Giovinco’s goal in the first minute stood up in Toronto FC’s 1-0 victory over DC United on Saturday.
Jozy Altidore got to the ball inside the box to the right of goalkeeper Travis Worra and rolled a cross that a sliding Marco Delgado reached and redirected a bit to his left and Giovinco was on the spot to tap it in for his fourth goal of the season.
That was enough for Toronto (2-2-2) to end a three-match winless streak as goalkeeper Clint Irwin made three saves. The toughest save came in the 30th minute when he got a hand on a tight shot by Patrick Nyarko out of traffic in front of the net.
DC (1-3-3) had 18 attempts but 10 were off target.
Toronto playing its sixth straight game on the road to open the season, had 10 shots, three on Worra.
