5 teams, 5 wins. That's how the CONCACAF Champions League has started for Major League Soccer. Toronto FC joined Seattle, L.A., Colorado and Dallas as first round winners by defeating Tauro 2-1 on the road in Panama. Ryan Johnson and Julián De Guzman scored first half goals for the Reds and the Toronto defense held off Tauro the rest of the way conceding only a second half penalty kick. Milos Kocic, Toronto's Serbian goalkeeper, made 6 saves as a physical Toronto side (30 fouls, 5 yellow cards) survived being outshot 15-7.
