The game in 100 words (or less)Sebastian Giovinco.

That’s two words, we know. The 30-year-old TFC superstar bagged another couple goals, one aided by Jozy Altidore, and cued the USMNT man up for another as the Reds rebounded from a road loss to Dallas with a road defeat or Orlando City. TFC moves back into first before Chicago plays late Wednesday, and Orlando remains in the Top Six despite defeat. Carlos Rivas scored the Lions’ goal.

The goals

18′ — Too much team speed — Orlando City center back Jonathan Spector has been pretty darn good for the Lions, but Giovinco and Altidore were too much to handle.

46′ — Giovinco darts to Altidore’s side — Altidore’s run already had him on the precipice of a second goal, but his Italian friend arrived on the scene for a deft finish and 2-0.

65′ — Giovinco’s laser-light show — Cue your corny fireworks joke saved from the 4th, and enjoy another gorgeous shot from the 2015 MLS MVP. For Giovinco, that’s 57 goals and 34 assists in 89 games with the Reds.
