The contest exploded into life on 35 minutes following a relatively tentative start from both sides when Davies tapped home from one yard out.
The opener proved to be the first in a trilogy of low points for Toronto in the minutes leading up to the half-time whistle.
In the second half, Davies almost added his second goal of the game when he latched on to a cross from Rowe, but his effort was saved by Joe Bendik.
Diego Fagundez almost unlocked the Toronto defence when he raided to the edge of the box and fired a low strike towards the bottom corner, but Bendik made an impressive diving stop.
Davies did notch his second strike of the match when he turned the ball in from close range after Fagundez's free kick was deflected into his path in front of goal.
New England tried to restore their three-goal advantage before the full-time whistle, but Juan Agudelo's over-head kick sailed inches past the post.
