Top 5 goals of 2012: Shalrie Joseph

By Olivia Cervantes

In nine years with New England Revolution, midfielder Shalrie Joseph scored a total of 37 goals in 261 games (254 starts) with the club. Then Joseph was traded on August 1 to Chivas USA, but it didn’t take long for him to begin scoring for the Goats, notching two goals in one game, a special one for the Grenada-born player.

Chivas USA travelled to Boston on August 29 for a mid-week match against the Revolution, Joseph’s first return since being traded earlier that month. Just when all seemed lost for the Goats after going down 3-nil by the 20th minute, Joseph scored.  As if one goal against his former club wasn't enough, Joseph notched his second of the night for the Red-and-White to make  the match 3-2.

In the last minute of the first half, Juan Agudelo made a pass to Joseph who with a left-footed shot from outside the box, put the ball into the back of the net to put the Goats back in the game. It was a real comeback game for the Goats who avoided leaving Gillette Stadium without any points; the match ended in a 3-3 draw after Miller Bolaños scored the third goal in the 47th minute.
