Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.

New England Revolution's Chris Tierney retires after 11 seasons

New England Revolution's Chris Tierney retires after 11 seasons

After 11 seasons with the New England Revolution, Chris Tierney announced his retirement on Thursday.  It marks the end of a special career in club history.  The Wellesley native played his entire MLS career for his hometown team and is the Revs' longest-tenured field player. In franchise history, he ranks third in league appearances, fourth in assists, and second in game-winning helpers.    

The fullback started at least 20 matches for eight straight seasons (2010-2017).  2018 might have been another season of 20-plus starts, but a torn ACL cut his season short on May 30.  

His left foot was lethal.  Over the course of his career, he delivered quite a few highlight reel free kicks.  Brad Friedel will remember the last one he made. Tierney's stoppage-time goal against Colorado helped the first year head coach earn his first win in the second game of the season.  

His most memorable goal may have come in 2014 MLS Cup.  His 79th-minute equalizer pushed the championship match to extra time before Robbie Keane scored the game-winner.
