Boyd nets double as Rapid held by Genk

Terrence Boyd continued his solid scoring form for Rapid Vienna in their 2-2 Europa League draw with Genk on Thursday night.

The American striker netted both Rapid goals as they were eventually held by the Belgians to move up to third on the Group G table of Europe’s second tier club competition.

Boyd headed home a rebound in the 40th minute to cancel out Modou Mbodji’s earlier penalty before giving Rapid the lead on the stroke of half-time when he nodded home from a corner.

However, Genk hit back through Thomas Buffel on the hour-mark to remain top of the group on eight points, five clear of third-placed Rapid and one ahead of Dynamo Kiev in second.

Boyd has now scored three goals in Europe this season, adding to his seven in the Austrian Bundesliga for the third-placed Hutteldorfer.
