Boyd score twice; Friedel sets record
[AMERICANS ABROAD] Terrence Boyd scored two goals to give him 10 for the season in all competitions and help Rapid Vienna
earn a 2-2 tie with Belgian club Genk. Brad Friedel set a Europa League record as the oldest player to start in the competition as he was in goal for

games to spare.
