Bunbury’s Penalty Kick Gives Revolution 1-1 Tie With Atlanta United

Thursday, May 31, 2018

 

Teal Bunbury's penalty kick gives Revolution a tie

The New England Revolution rallied in the second half to play Atlanta United FC to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium.

“We want to get three points, so I wouldn’t say it feels like a win. Atlanta is a good team. They have a lot of key players but we kept pushing and we got a point. We’ll assess this game. Good thing we have a game in a couple days against the Red Bulls who are another great team, and a great matchup, an Eastern conference rival, and we’re looking to get three points in that game as well,” said Teal Bunbury after the game.

With the tie the Revolution fall to 5-4-4 on the season, while Atlanta falls to 8-3-2.

Revs Salvage a Draw

Trailing 1-0 late in the second half, Revolution forward Krisztián Németh drew a foul on the right side of the penalty area, resulting in a penalty kick.

Bunbury buried the penalty kick to tie the game at 1 in the 88th minute.

“Score. I could sit here and try to give you a line. You put the ball in the back of the net. You don’t really think about anything else for your team, to get a result. There’s a lot of guys that could have taken it, but I wanted to step up there and put it in the back of the net,” said Bunbury.

Bunbury’s goal was his seventh of the season, which brings him within two goals of his single-season career high of nine – a mark he set in 2011 with Sporting Kansas City.

The goal also keeps Bunbury within two tallies of the league lead, currently held by Atlanta’s Martínez with nine goals.

The teams would play to a draw.

For the Revolution, the draw was their second straight.

Next Up

The Revolution return to action on Saturday, June 2 when they host the New York Red Bulls.

Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
