U.S. international striker Terrence Boyd picked up right where he left off in the 2012-13 season, scoring twice as Rapid Vienna easily defeated 10-man Wiener Neustadt 4-0 on Saturday.
The visitors' task was made very difficult when Dennis Mimm picked up a straight red card in the 18th minute. Rapid took advantage, as a first-half brace from Guido Burgstaller put the home side up 2-0 at halftime.
Boyd put the game beyond reach in the second half, scoring in the 53rd and 79th minute to seal a comfortable win, his side's first on the young season. Rapid began Austrian Bundesliga play last week with a 2-2 draw against RZ Pellets WAC.
The 22-year-old had a strong debut season with Rapid last year, as he scored 13 goals in league play. He has been capped nine times by the U.S. national team.
