Revs Struggle To Score, Fall To D.C. United

Saturday, April 05, 2014

 

The New England Revolution traveled to the nation's capitol one week after a thrilling stoppage time win. The Revs could not manage the same magic this week though, falling 2-0 to D.C. United and falling to 1-3-1 on the season. The win for D.C. United breaks a 15-game winless streak, dating back to last season.

The first tally of the match came on an own goal from the Revolution. Captain Jose Goncalves found his own net on a cross attempt from D.C.'s Cristian Fernandez. Goncalves tried to clear the ball back behind the end line, but tucked it into his own net to give D.C the 1-0 lead.

The Revs had a great chance off the foot of forward Teal Bunbury in the 49th minute. Bunbury got in front of a D.C. United pass before curling a left-footed blast just over the net. Bunbury had another great scoring chance in the 55th minute when Chris Tierney set him up inside the box, but the Bunbury shot was just wide of the net, keeping the score at 1-0.

The Revs final scoring chance came in the 72nd minute as Diego Fagundez missed the net on a bicycle kick attempt on a cross by Chris Tierney. The cross came off a good set piece play set up by Lee Nguyen but the Revs were once again unable to find the net.

D.C. United was able to take advantage of the Revs attacking mindset in stoppage time when Fabian Espindola put a beautiful through ball in for Chris Rolfe. Rolfe put a good shot on net and trickled through the hands of Revs keeper Bobby Shuttleworth and make it 2-0.

The win was the first in the last 15 games for D.C. United. For the Revs, the scoring problems continue as they have only found the back of the net once in five games. The Revs will be back in action next Saturday as they welcome the Houston Dynamo to Gillette Stadium, trying to avenge a 4-0 season-opening loss to the Dynamo.
