Jonathan Osorio scored two of Toronto FC's four goals in the first half of extra time, as the hosts recorded a 5-1 victory over D.C. United in an Eastern Conference opening-round playoff match on Saturday.

Richie Laryea and former D.C. United defender/midfielder Nick DeLeon also tallied in extra time to help fourth-seeded Toronto FC rebound after Lucas Rodriguez forged a tie off a set piece in second-half stoppage time.

Marco Delgado scored in the 32nd minute, and Quentin Westberg made five saves for Toronto FC, who will carry an 11-match unbeaten streak (5-0-6) into their conference semifinal contest at New York City FC on Wednesday. TFC went 1-0-1 against NYCFC during the regular season.

Laryea broke the 1-1 tie, capping a nifty passing sequence from Michael Bradley and DeLeon in the 93rd minute. Osorio's right-footed shot from close range doubled the advantage just two minutes later.

Osorio completed the brace with a shot from the center of the box in the 103rd minute, and DeLeon capped the scoring three minutes later with a bending rocket into the top right corner.

Toronto FC played without star striker Jozy Altidore and defender Omar Gonzalez. Altidore sustained a quad injury in the regular-season finale against Columbus, while Gonzalez failed a fitness test prior to Saturday's match due to a hamstring injury.

The loss for fifth-seeded D.C. United spelled the end of the MLS career of Wayne Rooney. The former Everton and Manchester United star announced in August that he'll be going back to England to be a player and assistant coach second-tier Derby County.

After posting five straight clean sheets to end the regular season, D.C. United goalkeeper Bill Hamid (12 saves) was unable to control Alejandro Pozuelo's shot from outside the box in the first half. The ball squirted right to Delgado, who converted from the doorstep to open the scoring.

Rooney's attempt for the equalizer was denied in the 64th minute. The veteran was able to carve out some breathing room between two defenders at the top of the box, but his shot from distance was denied by a diving save with the right arm by Westberg.

Westberg also came up big in the 77th minute, denying Ola Kamara's left-footed shot from in close to preserve the one-goal advantage.

Rodriguez ultimately tied it by slamming home a loose ball in the box off of a Rooney corner kick.
