New England vs. New York: Score, Grades and Reaction from MLS Game

New England 2-2 New York (New England win 4-3 on aggregate)

Charlie Davies scored twice as New England twice came from behind to ensure their place in the MLS Cup final next weekend and ruin what could be Thierry Henry's last professional match.

Tim Cahill had pulled New York back into the Eastern Conference semi-final when his 26th-minute opener made it 2-2 on aggregate.

But Davies gave the home side the advantage once more three minutes before the interval in a savage psychological blow to New York.

However, seven minutes into the second period, Peguy Luyindula restored New York's advantage, and the visitors looked set to build on the momentum and claim another goal to reach the final.

With 20 minutes left, though, Davies headed home a tremendous Chris Tierney cross to send New England through.

It was a sad end for Henry, too, with his New York contract set to end at the end of the season.
