Tied heading into the 80th minute of Saturday’s clash, a rookie made all of the difference in the New England Revolution’s meeting with the Seattle Sounders.
Femi Hollinger-Janzen scored the game-winning goal on Saturday, leading the Revs to a 2-1 victory over the Sounders while also claiming honors as SBI MLS Rookie of the Week.
Hollinger-Janzen’s decisive moment came from distance. After recovering a mishit clearance, the Indiana product recovered from a slip on the Gillette Stadium turf before uncorking a shot from outside of the box. The shot skimmed into the far post, giving the rookie his second goal in three games while earning his side a late win.
The goal proved the latest Hollinger-Janzen contribution to the Revs, while earning the forward honors as SBI MLS Rookie of the Week over Jonathan Campbell, Keegan Rosenberry, Tony Alfaro and Rodrigo Saravia.
