Two If By Sea...?

The signings of two Gambian youth internationals, Sainey Nyassi and Abdoulie Mansally, have yet to provide the added firepower New England is looking for. Instead, the Revs have relied on the likes of Jeff Larentowicz (a true defensive midfielder) to add to the offense. Larentowicz has not disappointed - in fact he led the charge in the Open Cup semi final against the Carolina Railhawks in early September.
With his team down a goal late in the first half, Larentowicz became visibly frustrated by the lack of offense from his team. You could see it unfold on the pitch - Larentowicz intercepted a ball, and played it off to Adam Cristman in the corner and started running straight to the goal. Cristman quickly fed it to Noonan on the side of the box, and Noonan put it thigh - high, square across the front of the goal for the on-rushing Larentowicz, and with an amazing dive, he headed it fiercly into the goal.

It was only Big Red's third goal of the season, but each of the goals have been spectacular. His last league goal from a free kick against Real Salt Lake that he blasted by the wall and the keeper and everyone else came in Late July. The first goal of the season was a Crouching Tiger kick (but without the wires) off of a Ralston corner kick against Chicago that Larentowicz rose into the air in a horizontal position and met the ball feet first (if anyone has a picture of this let me know).
