Twin blasts that rocked the Boston Marathon this week reached Major League Soccer on Tuesday.

Among the close to 200 injured in Monday’s terrorist attack were friends and family of New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis and defender Chris Tierney.

Reis’ wife, Nicole, was reportedly running the event for charity while her father, John Odem, was near the finish line when the blasts occurred, sending him to hospital in critical condition.

Tierney’s girlfriend was also injured, but is said to be in stable condition, according to nesn.com.

“What frustrates me the most is there are guys out there running a marathon, working really hard, families watching,” Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen said following Tuesday’s training.

“It’s just unbelievable that some person, some group, or whoever, could think about causing harm.”

As of Tuesday night, the death toll remained at three, but the residual effects around the sporting world were far-reaching.
