TORONTO - Toronto FC snapped two embarrassing streaks on Saturday afternoon and finally rewarded its loyal backers with a victory.

First came the end of a 423-minute scoring drought — that’s more than seven hours — when Jonathan Osorio finally struck for the Reds in the 87th minute to level the match against the visiting Columbus Crew.

Then, even more stunningly, came the winner, from the feet of Andrew Wiedeman in the 94th, giving Toronto a 2-1 win, its first league victory at BMO Field since July 18, 2012. Wiedeman scored the decisive goal in that one, too.

This time, the little-used striker dove feet-first and directed a Bobby Convey shot to the left corner. Many of the Reds thought the attempt was heading wide — including Wiedeman himself — but it found its mark.
