The New England Revolution's 18 year-old striker Diego Fagundez scored 13 goals this season, the fifth-most goals across MLS in 2013. Vancouver Whitecap's Camilo won the MLS Golden Boot with 22 regular season goals this year.
New England's young leading goal scorer also added seven assists for the team, took the most shots on goal (29) and won club MVP for his achievements in 2013.
Fagundez, a native of Uruguay who grew up in Leominster, Mass., is Major League Soccer’s all-time leading scorer as a teenager - the only teenager in league history to score 10 or more goals in a season.
The Revolution signed Fagundez in November 2010 as the team’s first-ever Homegrown player after he spent a year-and-a-half playing with the Revolution Academy’s youth teams. This October, Fagundez gained permanent resident status from the U.S. government and will now count as a domestic player on the Revolution’s roster.
With a 1-0 win over Columbus Crew in the Revolution's regular season finale on October 26, Fagundez helped lead the team to its first playoff berth since 2009. New England (14-11-9, 51 pts.) finished the season with the club’s second-best season point total in team history.
The Revolution will now play Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinal Series against Sporting Kansas City at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 8 p.m. ET.
