New England Revolution players celebrate the winning goal by Gustavo Bou during a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Impact in an MLS Cup play-in game Friday night in Foxborough, Mass. Stew Milne/Associated Press


MLS: Gustavo Bou scored on a long shot in the 95th minute to give the New England Revolution a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Impact in the play-in round of the MLS Cup playoffs.

The Revolution will play in the first round Tuesday night against either top-seeded Philadelphia or No. 2 Toronto FC.

Carles Gil volleyed home his first goal of the season in the 38th minute to open the scoring for New England. Gil, the MLS newcomer of the year last season, had surgery on his left Achilles tendon in August.

Romell Quioto tied it in the 61st minute, heading in a free kick.


Ending her 10-month break from racing, Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. is set to go first in a World Cup slalom Saturday in Levi, Finland, while the Sweden team has gone into quarantine and will miss both races this weekend.

According to the official start list released by FIS on Friday, Shiffrin was given No. 1 during the bib draw for the slalom season opener.

Another women’s slalom on the Black Levi course is scheduled for Sunday.

Shiffrin, a double Olympic and three-time overall World Cup champion, hasn’t raced since January.

The American’s season was cut short in February as she took a five-week break from racing following the death of her father, Jeff Shiffrin, and then the remainder of the season was canceled amid the coronavirus outbreak.


ATP FINALS: Novak Djokovic reached the semifinals and eliminated Alexander Zverev by beating the German 6-3, 7-6 (4), ensuring the top four players in the world advanced at the season-ending event in London for the first time since 2004.

The top-ranked Djokovic set up a semifinal against Dominic Thiem on Saturday as he goes for a record-tying sixth title at the tournament, and a first since 2015.

Rafael Nadal will take on Daniil Medvedev in the other semifinal.


PGA: Robert Streb birdied his last two holes on the Plantation course at Seal Island and matched his career low with a 9-under 63, giving him a two-shot lead over Camilo Villegas in the RSM Classic at St. Simons Island, Georgia.

Villegas had an even better finish to stay in range going into the weekend. His tee shot on the par-5 18th on the Plantation course hit a cart path on the right side of the fairway and bounced enough that he only had a 9-iron left over the water to a front pin. He was urging it to clear the water, and it landed just on the green and left him about 12 feet away for a closing eagle and a 66.

The final two rounds move to the Seaside course, which Joel Dahmen lit up Friday for a 9-under 61 that took him from outside the cut line to just outside the top 10.

Streb was at 14-under 128 at the only tournament he has won on the PGA Tour. It was the fourth time he shot 63, the most memorable in the second round at Baltusrol in the 2016 PGA Championship.

LPGA: Sei Young Kim, making her first start since winning the KPMG Women’s PGA a month and half ago for her first major title, shot a 5-under 65 to take a one-stroke lead over Ally McDonald in the Pelican Women’s Championship at Belleair, Florida.

McDonald, who won her first LPGA Tour title late last month in the tour’s most recent event, shot a 66 to move to 7 under through two rounds.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Jacques Blaauw shot an 8-under 63 to take a one-stroke lead over fellow South African Wilco Nienaber in the weather-delayed Joburg Open in Johannesburg.

Blaauw, ranked No. 476 in the world, was 13 under through two rounds. Nienaber followed his first-round 63 with a 67.


GERMANY: American youngster Gio Reyna has extended his contract with Borussia Dortmund.

Reyna, the youngest American to play in the Bundesliga, signed a new deal through June 2025, the club said. Reyna turned 18 on Nov. 13, a day after making his debut for the U.S. national team.
