Adam Buksa helped spearhead the New England Revolution's come-from-behind, 3-2 win over D.C. United on Wednesday night, earning MLS Team of the Week honors for his one-goal, one-assist showing at Audi Field.
Buksa sparked the Revolution's comeback with their first goal in the 61st minute, burying an unstoppable header to register his 14th goal of the season and his sixth in his past eight MLS appearances. Just 18 minutes later he picked up an assist on the eventual game winner, playing a cheeky backheel to Gustavo Bou to set up his team-leading 15th goal of the campaign. Buksa also recorded five shots to set a new Revolution single-season record (102).
It's the third time in his MLS career that Buksa has registered both a goal and an assist in the same game, and this marks the fourth time this season he's been named to the MLS Team of the Week.
Revolution goalkeeper Matt Turner was also recognized with a place on the bench, making seven saves to keep the Revs within striking distance until their late attacking outburst. Turner now has 16 wins on the season, tying the Revolution's single-season club record also held by Matt Reis (2005) and Bobby Shuttleworth (2014).
