The New England Revolution announced Thursday that it signed midfielder Ryan Guy. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Guy is expected to join the team following the Revs weekend trip to New York, where they play the Red Bulls on Friday.
Guy was drafted by FC Dallas in the second round (22nd overall) of the 2007 MLS SuperDraft, but instead played abroad for Irelands St. Patricks Athletic in February 2007. In four seasons with the Saints, the San Diego native made 139 appearances and scored 25 goals. Guy also scored St. Patricks first-ever away goal in Europe against Latvia's JKF Olimps during the first qualifying round of the 2008 UEFA Cup.
A University of San Diego alum, Guy appeared in all 79 of the Toreros games in his four seasons, starting 77 between 2003 and 2006. He was a 2004 NSCAA All-Far West honoree, and a three-time All-West Coast Conference performer, scoring 16 career goals and adding 24 career assists.
TORONTO - Drew Moor scored early and Sebastian Giovinco struck late and Toronto FC overcame a tight schedule turnaround to beat the New England Revolution 2-0 on Friday night.
Toronto was coming off a 1-1 tie Wednesday night in Montreal in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final. The Revs had been off since a 2-1 home loss to Chicago on Saturday.
Moor's 11th-minute goal looked to be enough, with Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono preserving the win with a save on Teal Bunbury's header in the 88th minute. But Giovinco added an insurance goal deep into stoppage time, bringing down a high ball before beating a defender and banging a left-footed shot home for his 50th goal in MLS regular-season and playoff action.
MLS leading Toronto (10-2-5) has won seven straight at home. New England (5-7-5) is 0-6-3 on the road.
Nemanja Nikolic and Luis Solignac scored and the Chicago Fire handed the New England Revolution their first home loss of the season, 2-1 on Saturday night.
Nikolic scored his MLS-leading 13th goal in the 18th minute, beating an offside trap and, after having his initial shot blocked by goalie Cody Cropper, firing in the rebound.
Three quick passes found Solignac in front of the goal as he finished from close range in the 61st for his fourth goal.
New England scored in the 70th when Juan Agudelo kept the ball alive with a header off a cross with Antonio Mlinar Delamea then heading in the ball for his first MLS goal.
New England, which outshot Chicago 24-8, spent the remaining minutes on the attack but failed to get the equalizer despite several frantic moments in front of Chicago's net.
New England (5-6-5) had five wins and two draws at home before the loss. Chicago (9-3-4) is unbeaten in eight matches.
