New England's Tierney fined, suspended

The MLS Disciplinary Committee announced Wednesday that it has suspended New England Revolution defender Chris Tierney one game and fined him an undisclosed amount for a reckless challenge that endangered the safety of his opponent.

The challenge came in the 90th minute of New England's victory over the Philadelphia Union on Saturday with Tierney committing a dangerous tackle on Sebastien LeToux.

Tierney will serve the suspension Thursday when New England plays at Jeld-Wen Field against the Portland Timbers.
