Toronto FC opens Champions League with a 5-1 win over El Salvador's Aguila

TORONTO - Toronto FC had a hot start to its CONCACAF Champions League run on Wednesday, blowing out El Salvador's Club Deportivo Aguila 5-1 at BMO Field.

Reggie Lambe scored twice, while Luis Silva, Terry Dunfield and Ryan Johnson also scored for the Reds before a dismal crowd of 5,324.

Toronto temporarily leads its three-team group with three points. Mexico's Santos Laguna opens play at home to Aguila on Aug. 21.

After missing a connecting flight and spending the night in a Miami airport, Aguila didn't arrive in Toronto until a few hours before kickoff.

Toronto just missed tying a franchise record for most goals in a game, which was set with a 6-1 win over the Montreal Impact in the 2009 Canadian club championship.

Since only the group winner advances to quarter-final play, this was considered a must-win game for Toronto.
