Salt Lake City, UT - Former Cal State Fullerton goalkeeper Sam Reynolds has had a successful debut in Major League Soccer as he made several outstanding saves to help Toronto FC tie the Kansas City Wizards, 1-1, Sunday evening at Arrowhead Stadium, and then played well before being injured late in Toronto's first road win of the year, a 2-1 decision Wednesday over Real Salt Lake.
In his debut, Reynolds made four of his six saves in the second half when Toronto played the final 15 minutes a man down. Two of them came in stoppage time. On Wednesday, he came well out of the box on at least two occasions to make brilliant stops only to take himself out of the match in the 84th minute with a leg injury.
Reynolds played in the 2001-04 seasons for the Titans and was the starter most of the latter three years. He began his professional career with the Portland Timbers of the USL in 2005. Reynolds' hometown is Davis, California.
