Revolution icon nets his 100th goal on Sunday, also becoming the youngest MLS player to reach the 100-goal mark
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Taylor Twellman, the New England Revolution’s all-time leading scorer and a former Major League Soccer MVP, scored his 100th career MLS goal this evening in the team’s 4-0 victory at home against the New York Red Bulls, becoming the youngest player in MLS history to reach that mark at 29 years and 100 days, besting Jeff Cunningham’s previous mark (31 years, 360 days).
Twellman, who later added his 101st goal in the game, set the mark in just 174 games, fewer games by any of the previous four players to reach the century mark.
In tonight’s game, Twellman made just his second appearance of the 2009 season after missing the first nine games of the year – and the 2008 MLS Cup Playoffs - on-going medical issues, including severe whiplash stemming from a punch to the head he sustained while scoring a goal against the LA Galaxy on Aug. 30, 2008 at Gillette Stadium.
