[AMERICANS ABROAD] Terrence Boyd scored his fifth goal in the last three games when he had what proved to be the gamewinner in the 34th minute of Rapid Vienna's 2-0 win over Wacker Innsbruck on Sunday.

Boyd leads Rapid with 14 league goals, putting him tied for fifth in the Austrian Bundesliga.  He also scored five goals in Europa League play to give him 19 goals overall.

The season came to an end for Tijuana's Americans as Xolos fell to Toluca, 3-1, on Sunday to exit the Torneo Clausura playoffs by the same score on aggregate. Edgar Castillo started while Joe Corona came off the bench in the second half. Sacramento-born Miguel Ponce broke the 1-1 tie in the second half.

Saturday ...

Juan Agudelo
scored third goal since moving to FC Utrecht on loan from Stoke City with the gamewinner in FC Utrecht's 2-1 win over Vitesse on the final day of the Eredivisie season.

Agudelo slipped in to put away a loose ball in the 78th minute to give Utrecht the win that moved it to 11th place in the final standings. He also had an assist on Utrecht's first goal scored by Steve De Ridder.

Aron Johannsson did not play for AZ in its 1-1 tie with Feyenoord. He finished third in the Eredivisie with 17 goals -- and had 26 goals in all competitions for AZ.

Tim Howard's Everton saw its Champions League bid end when it fell to Manchester City, 3-2. The win kept City in the driver's seat to snatch the EPL title from Liverpool.

Leading Scorers (2013-14):
26 Aron Johannsson (AZ)
19+1 Terrence Boyd (Rapid Vienna)
9 Sacha Kljestan

    I would love to see an in from Boyd, Agudelo, or Johannsson teamed up with Dempsey. I hope they all get a call up for the WC camp.
