Revs Still Scoreless, Fight To Draw With Whitecaps FC

Sunday, March 23, 2014

 

The good news from Gillette Stadium was the New England Revolution extending their unbeaten home-opener streak to eight games (6-0-2). The bad news, the Revolution were once again held scoreless, making it zero goals in their first three games of the 2014 season.

Despite not scoring, the Revs fought to a scoreless draw with Vancouver Whitecaps FC, picking up[ their first point of the season (0-2-1). For Vancouver, the draw gave them points in each of their first three games, giving them five total (1-0-2).

The Revs starting XI once again saw a lot of changes, including the return of captain Jose Goncalves to the starting lineup. Saer Sene and Kelyn Rowe also saw a return to the starting lineup after Rowe missed the Revs last game due to injury and Sene was relegated to coming off the bench after a leg injury late last season.

Although the Revs were unable to score their attack dominated Whitecaps FC all day, putting 17 shots in direction of the net with three on target. The Revs first opportunity came in just the 5th minute when midfielder Andy Dorman put a header on target off of a well-placed Chris Tierney corner kick. The header was turned away by Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted.

Ousted was forced to turn the Revs away twice more in the first half as Saer Sene and Diego Fagundez both put good shots on net. For Whitecaps FC, their best opportunity came in stoppage time of the first half as Kenny Miller put a blast on net, but Revs keeper Bobby Shuttleworth made a great save to keep it scoreless heading into the second half.

Both teams played with tempo in the second half, but neither was able to get a shot on target. The Revolution will be back on the road next week as they travel to San Jose to take on the Earthquake next Saturday.
