Jeremy Brockie opened his MLS goalscoring account for Toronto FC on Wednesday night.

The 25-year old New Zealand international, on loan from Wellington Phoenix, equalised for TFC in the sixth minute of their eventual 3-3 draw with Montreal Impact in the Canadian derby at BMO Field.

Brockie received a pass from Bobby Convey in the middle of the penalty area before taking a strong touch which moved him out of danger and into a great scoring position where he fiercely slapped the ball past Impact keeper Troy Perkins with his left foot.

That goal made it 1-1 after Andres Romero’s first-minute opener before the Reds went into half-time with a 3-1 lead thanks to goals from former Celtic pair Steven Caldwell and Darren O’Dea, also netting their first in MLS.

Caldwell’s powerful header from inside the six-yard box came from a lovely cross from Brockie who chased down a loose ball on the right flank near the touchline.

However, the match did not pan out the way that Ryan Nelsen and his Toronto charges would have liked with Hassoun Camara and Marco Di Vaio scoring for Montreal in the 69th and 70th minutes, forcing TFC to settle for a single point and a third draw in their past five outings.
