TORONTO -- Ryan Telfer scored on a volley in the 87th minute to give Toronto FC a 2-1 victory over Orlando City on Friday night.

Auro sent a long cross over the Orlando goal, and Telfer hammered the ball home for his first goal in four MLS starts.

Jay Chapman opened the scoring for Toronto in the 63rd minute, and appeared to make it 2-0 in 72nd, but substitute Tosaint Ricketts's goal was ruled offside after a late flag.

Cristian Higuita tied it for Orlando City in the 73rd minute. He fired a shot past Alex Bono from just outside the penalty box.

Toronto played without star strikers Sebastian Giovinco (suspension) and Jozy Altidore (foot injury).
