The Dynamo could not get settled on a wet, artificial surface and allowed Andy Welsh to score from a set piece to give Toronto a rare win. Dwayne De Rosario, a native of Toronto suburb Scarborough, played his first MLS game in his hometown, but the rowdy, sell-out crowd of 19,123 cheered loudest for its new team and a 1-0 win.
