New England Revolution 1, Toronto FC 1 | 2019 MLS Match Recap

In a vital Eastern Conference clash as the playoff race heats up, Toronto FC and the New England Revolution had to settle for a point each, as the teams tied 1-1 at Gillette Stadium. 

Gustavo Bou's 86th minute equalizer rescued a point for the Revs, though it's one Quentin Westberg will want back. Bou took aim from 20 yards out but his shot was right at Westberg at a comfortable speed, though it got through the keeper's grasp into the back of the net. 

Nicolas Benezet's first MLS goal opened the scoring in the 74th minute, as the winger headed home from close range on a rebound after Matt Turner denied Marky Delgado.

Turner had kept his side in the game before TFC's breakthrough, making an astonishing double save in the first half. The American keeper was left 1v1 with a surging Alejandro Pozuelo, but Turner swatted a hard-hit shot with his left hand before palming away Benezet's curling shot 10 seconds later. 

Toronto were without both Jozy Altidore and Justin Morrow (quad strains).
