Boyd scores late to salvage draw for Rapid Vienna

The young USA striker netted a late equalizer to help Rapid Vienna to a 1-1 home draw and stay within striking range near the top of the Austrian Bundesliga.
By Terrence Boyd's already-lofty standards, he had been mired in a slump. So much for that.

The 21-year-old USA striker netted an 87th-minute equalizer to lift Rapid Vienna to a 1-1 home draw with Wiener Neustadt Sunday.

Boyd, who had six goals entering the day, had not scored since Sept. 2, when he netted twice against Mattersburg. He endured a six-game drought across all club competitions since then until late Sunday, when he struck to highlight his 90-minute performance.

Boyd now has seven goals in 15 games in all competitions in his first season in top-flight soccer after scoring 20 goals for Borussia Dortmund's reserve team last year.
