TFC doesn’t have much time to prepare for its conference semifinal with first-place New York City FC

Toronto FC had a choice to make after giving up a game-tying goal to D.C. United in injury time Saturday night: wallow or win the game.

The Reds opted for the latter approach in their first-round playoff match, putting four goals past Wayne Rooney and company in the first half of extra time to write their ticket into the Eastern Conference semifinals at New York City FC on Wednesday night. The game will be played at Citi Field instead of Yankee Stadium, New York’s usual home park.

“You always get knocked down, you’re always going to have controversy, but it’s how you respond and we responded very well,” Reds midfielder Nick DeLeon said.
