Jack Bussey and Sean Penkywicz also had tries for Toronto at Derwent Park in a game that was delayed over two hours. Workington players and the referee were late getting to the field because of a traffic accident nearby.
Gordon Maudling and Perry Singelton replied for Workington (5-6-0).
The Wolfpack led 28-6 at the half before reeling off five more tries in the second for the decisive win. Penkywicz, Brierley and Pownall scored within a five-minute span to cap the game.
Toronto, the sport's first transatlantic team, aims to win promotion all the way up to the elite Super League.
