Nguyen, Rowe lead Revs in rout of TFC
Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Lee Nguyen and Kelyn Rowe each scored a goal and assisted on another as the New England Revolution rolled to a 3-0 win at Toronto FC on Saturday.
Nguyen scored inside of two minutes and then assisted on a goal for Rowe midway through the opening half. Rowe then had a hand in Teal Bunbury's 58th- minute tally as the Revs collected their seventh point from the past three matches.
Toronto is headed in the opposite direction as the side has now earned just one point from its three most recent contests.
The home team couldn't have gotten off to a worse start as an errant pass in the back allowed Nguyen to collect the loose ball and dribble toward goal before firing a low shot inside the far post.
Rowe then delivered a rocket in the 21st minute that left TFC goalkeeper Joe Bendik with little chance after he took a pass from Nguyen.
Nguyen threatened again after the break with a shot that just sailed past the post before Bunbury applied the finishing touch on a nice build up in the 58th.
Rowe played Charlie Davies in behind the Toronto defense and he waited patiently to lay a pass off for Bunbury to tap into the empty net to close out the match.
