TORONTO - Doneil Henry’s winner five minutes after the half broke a lifeless Canadian championship semifinal wide open before Toronto FC’s eventual 2-0 first-leg win over the Montreal Impact at BMO Field Wednesday night.

After a recycled corner twice rolled across the box in the 49th minute, a deflected cross set up perfectly for Henry to strike a first-timer that sailed past Impact ’keeper Evan Bush and into the top corner to put the Reds in great possession to advance from next week’s return leg at Saputo Stadium.

In his first start of 2013, Andrew Wiedeman capped off a breakaway 10 minutes from full-time with a tally that will give TFC a little comfort heading back to Montreal.
