Revolution Vs. Impact Update: Lee Nguyen's Stunning Strike A Possible Own Goal, But Still Ties It 1-1

The New England Revolution may have gone down early in their Wednesday night match against the Montreal Impact in Canada, but they managed to tie it up to go into the halftime break with something positive to talk about. Lee Nguyen combined with an unwitting Donovan Ricketts to bring the scores level and give the Revs the momentum at the interval.

With the Revs driving down the field, Kelyn Rowe cut inside with the ball before playing it to Lee Nguyen, lined up centrally as a sort of second-forward behind Saer Sene. Nguyen strode forward in space and, spying Ricketts off his line, decided to try his luck from about 40 yards. This was no lofted chip; Nguyen drilled his shot and got enough top spin to dip it and put it on target. The ball beat Ricketts, but not the crossbar, until it bounded down and off Ricketts' back to nestle into the net.

It will probably be scored an own goal, but the goal was all Nguyen regardless.
