Revolution Vs. Toronto: Brettschneider Claws One Back For New England, Down 2-1

It took 71 minutes, but the New England Revolution finally made their chances count against Toronto FC and managed to put one in the back of the net. Substitute Blake Brettschneider cleaned up a rebound to give the visitors a way back into the match at 2-1.

Benny Feilhaber received the ball in space about 22 yards out. The ball bounded slightly, but he unleashed a blistering half-volley anyway that forced Kocic into a falling parry. He didn't manage to get it away, though, and Blake Brettschneider was on hand to clean up the trash around the net. Toronto players had shouts for offside, but in the end Brettschneider was awarded the goal.

New England switched up their tactics a bit prior to the goal, bringing on Brettschneider for Clyde Simms and morphing into a high-tempo, aggressive 4-3-3 with the substitute playing as a target forward.
