The reigning league MVP had a bit of a slow spell, for his standards, in June. But Giovinco has found his form once again, scoring seventimes in his past four games, including a hat trick against the New England Revolution on Saturday evening.
Giovinco delivered his first goal after a scramble following a corner kick. A blocked Michael Bradley shot fell to Giovinco at an odd angle, but he blasted it past Bobby Shuttleworth all the same to give Toronto FC a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute.
The Italian attacker was at it again nine minutes later as he took the space given to him by the Revolution defense and beat Shuttleworth again with a curler from distance to double his side’s advantage.
Giovinco finished off his hat trick by converting a second-half penalty.
The brace gives Giovinco 15 goals on the season which is currently good for the league lead by two over New York City FC's David Villa.
Toronto won the contest 4-1, as Jozy Altidore also found the back of the net for the hosts.
