Toronto FC Vs. New England Revolution, MLS 2012: Revs Pull Out Point At Death

Chris Tierney was able to run onto a header in the 4th minute of stoppage time as the New England Revolution pulled out a 2-2 tie against Toronto FC on Saturday. TFC had built a 2-0 lead early in the first half on goals by Danny Koevermans and Ryan Johnson, but were on their heels for much of the second half.

It was the second time in four days that TFC had blown a two-goal lead and allowed the equalizer to come in the waning moments. On Wednesday, they led the Houston Dynamo 3-1 at halftime but settled for a tie after allowing a goal in the 90th minute.

The Revolution probably deserved to win this one, in fact. In the second half alone, they created numerous scoring chances and only a combination of TFC goalkeeper Milos Kocic and the woodwork keeping TFC ahead as long as they were. Kocic came up with seven saves, which doesn't include one shot that Benny Feilhaber hit off the post. They broke through with their first goal when Blake Brettschneider converted in the 71st minute.

The first half, though, was all TFC. Koevermans scored his third goal of the week on the 4th minute off a cross from Ashtone Morgan, who also set up Johnson in the 42nd minute.
