Nguyen’s Late Goal Lifts Revs Over Earthquake

Sunday, March 30, 2014

 

The New England Revolution traveled to San Jose and came away with a thrilling 2-1 win on the road to pick-up their first win of 2014. The Revs got their first three points thanks to a Lee Nguyen goal in the 93rd minute. The goal was the first of the season to come off a Revolution player's foot.

The scoring got started in a rather unconventional way as the Revolution took a 1-0 lead in the 35th minute off of an own goal from Victor Bernardez. The goal marked the first of the season for the Revs, even though it came on an own goal.

Although the Revs did not put the goal in on their own, the goal and the 1-0 score was indicative of the flow of the game, which had been controlled by the Revolution.

The next goal came off the foot off Earthquake forward Chris Wondolowski in the 69th minute. Wondolowski got the ball within the box and hammered home a finish while in traffic. Much like in the first half, the Earthquake goal was indicative of the flow of the game, as the Earthquake had been on the attack most of the 2nd Half.

The final tally came in stoppage time when Lee Nguyen netted the first goal of the year for a Revolution player off the counter attack. The goal came in dramatic fashion, being scored in the waning moments of the game and propelling the Revs to their first victory of the year.

The win ends San Jose's 21-game home unbeaten streak and is also the Revs first win at San Jose since 2009. The Revs now have four points with a 1-2-1 record and will travel to RFK Stadium to take on D.C. United on Saturday.
