Watch: Jozy Altidore scores twice for Toronto FC in win over Orlando City

Monday April 27th, 2015

Back in his home state, Jozy Altidore got back on the scoresheet for Toronto FC for the first time since the club's season opener.

Altidore, raised in Boca Raton, Florida, scored two second-half goals against Orlando City SC at the Citrus Bowl Sunday, leading TFC to a 2-0 win that snapped a four-game losing streak. 

The U.S. men's national team forward, who scored two goals in TFC's a 3-1 triumph over the Vancouver Whitecaps on March 7, snapped a deadlock in the 50th minute. Off a quickly taken restart, Altidore worked a give-and-go with fellow Designated Player Sebastian Giovinco, weaved through three Orlando City defenders and hit a low shot that Orlando goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts got a hand on but couldn't prevent from going in the goal.

Altidore doubled his tally in the 83rd minute, putting the game on ice by taking down a long pass from Benoit Cheryou, dancing around and faking out Ricketts and center back Seb Hines and then having a somewhat fortuitous touch, as Hines's chance to clear bounced off Altidore's leg and into the vacated net.

Altidore's four goals are tied for second-most in the league. Columbus's Kei Kamara and Vancouver's Octavio Rivero each have five goals to lead MLS.
