FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Chris Pontius delivered another gem for the LA Galaxy on Saturday night.
The Galaxy midfielder scored a brace in Los Angeles' thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind victory over the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium. Pontius notched the team's opener off a stunning volley and then helped them complete a remarkable comeback in stoppage time with a finish off a dish from Romain Alessandrini.
"Chris Pontius had a very good game tonight. Chris has been a great addition to our club this year. He's a good pro, and he comes out every day and works hard," Galaxy head coach Sigi Schmid told Spectrum SportsNet after the match. "Today, he played on the right wing, at center forward, and in the midfield, and he came through in all the positions for us."
Pontius has been red-hot for the Galaxy as of late with either a goal or an assist in his last seven matches for the club. During that span, Pontius has notched four goals and four assists.
Despite his recent resurgence, the always team-oriented Pontius stressed that the Galaxy have work to do before they take on his old club, the Philadelphia Union next week.
"We're a work in progress," he said. "A lot of this team was brought in this year. We need to start to get things to gel a bit better in terms of our style of play."
