Foxborough, MA (SportsNetwork. Austin Gomber .com) - Charlie Davies netted a pair of goals, including the series-winner on Saturday, as the New England Revolution battled the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw in the second leg of the Eastern Conference Championship at Gillette Stadium and advanced to MLS Cup final via a thrilling 4-3 aggregate victory. The Revolution entered Saturdays second leg in decent shape, having taken the first leg at Red Bull Arena, 2-1 a week ago. But the momentum from the opening leg was quickly erased as the Red Bulls drew first blood. Thierry Henry, playing on an artificial surface for the first time in his MLS career, sent and excellent ball over the top to Tim Cahill in the 26th minute and the Australian international did well to outmuscle Revs defender Jose Goncalves and poke it past goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth. But New England pulled it level on the day at 1-1 and a 3-2 aggregate lead in the 41st minute when the home side elected to play a short corner kick to Chris Tierney and his cross was knocked off Davies and in behind Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles. New York battled back to make it 3-3 on aggregate in the 52nd minute when Lloyd Sam sent a speculative ball into the box that fell kindly to the feet of Peguy Luyindula and the Frenchman fired it home to make it 3-3. With the match at 3-3 on aggregate, the tie would have gone to extra time if the result held, but Davies came to the rescue with 20 minutes to play. The goal came to cap a spell of relentless offensive pressure from New England as Tierney again got free on the left wing and served a great ball into the box where Davies was there to nod it home and give the hosts a 4-3 aggregate lead. As the clock crept toward 90 minutes New York surged forward knowing another goal would send them through via the away goals tiebreaker, but the Revs back line held firm to secure the clubs first trip to the MLS title game for the first time since 2007.

Here are some of the best from Week One and some to watch in Week Two: TOP PERFORMERS Anthony Allen, RB, Saskatchewan (176 YDS, 2 TD, 30 touches vs. Hamilton) - Powerfully-built back burst onto the scene in his CFL debut, after a couple of years in the NFL, playing 21 games with the Baltimore Ravens. Edmundo Sosa . In the Brewers six games this season, no starter has allowed more than three runs. "We see the guy in front of us do a great job and we want to do even better," Gallardo said after the Brewers beat the Red Sox 4-0 on Sunday, his second straight scoreless start. http://www.custommlbcardinalsjersey.com/custom-tony-cingrani-jersey-large-1531q.html . PETERSBURG, Fla.Englands seamers must exploit any lateral movement on offer in Sundays World Twenty20 Final against West Indies to boost their chances of keeping Chris Gayle in check, says Nasser Hussain. Gayle smote an unbeaten century as West Indies powered their way to a six-wicket victory over Eoin Morgans men in Mumbai, swelling his world record of T20 international sixes to 98.Left-armer David Willey looked dangerous at the start of that match, dismissing Johnson Charles for a duck, but didnt bowl a single ball to Gayle in his first two overs. By the time he returned to the attack in the 16th over, Gayle had his eye in and hit him for 16 off four balls. Chris Gayles numbers from his innings against England in the Super 10s What you need against the West Indies batsmen is lateral movement, otherwise the likes of Gayle just hit through the line and if he gets going, therell be plenty of atmosphere, said Hussain.West Indies are not a one man show, as India found out in the semi-final; even if you get Gayle early there are other guys who can come in and hurt you.Gayle got away from David Willeys end in that first match; Willey was swinging the ball beautifully but Gayle never got down to his end. Player of the World T20? Vote for your favourite from Nassers XI If its gun-barrel straight to Gayle, as it was in Mumbai, hes outstanding at hitting through the line whereas hell find it tougher if Willey is swinging it here.Look at how Kagiso Rabada and Jasprit Bumrah got him out, bowling full and straight at the stumps.Then if he does get in, bowl wide at him; Englands seamers did that very well the other day against the New Zealand batsmen - Chris Jordan and Ben Stokes bowled those wide yorkers. Chris Jordan and Rob Key practice bowling the perfect yorker However, West Indies are not a one-man side - its not a case of get Gayle out, win the game, something they proved against India when their guys in the middle order got a hit.Thats why [West Indies captain] Darren Sammy is confident.England, who have played their last three games in Delhi, will encounter vastly different conditions for Sundays final at Eden Gardens and while Hussain says its too early to say with any certainty how the pitch will behave, he reckons Morgann might name an unchanged line-up at the toss. Andrew Knizner. Rob Key and Nasser Hussain take a look at the pitch ahead of Englands ICC World T20 final against West Indies. Its completely different from Delhi, which had a little bit of pace, but I think there will be a little bit of grass on the surface, he said.England will be happy with that as it means they dont have to change their plans and can stick with their seam attack and two spinners.If it was an absolute spitting cobra, though, theyd have to think about bringing in Liam Dawson, their third spinner, to make his debut in a World Cup final.Hussain added: I think both captains [Eoin Morgan and Sammy] are very relaxed individuals. Watch the West Indies players celebrate in style after their World T20 semi-final win over India They arent going to be putting pressure on their teams and say: Do you know how important this game is, how many people are watching and what it means to the country?They will be the polar opposite, trying to make out its just another game of cricket, even though its a little bit more than that. It will come down to how many gun players in your side perform on the day.Watch the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 Final between England and West Indies live on Sky Sports 2 this Sunday from 1.30pm.
