Revs tie DC 2-2 on late equalizer
WASHINGTON, DC. Ė For the second time in a row, Revsí head coach Steve Nicol subbed in Andy Dorman in the last ten minutes of the match and once again Dorman proved to be a hero. After recording a goal and an assist against Dallas on Wednesday coming on in the 83rd minute, Dorman scored a late equalizer against DC just seconds after he entered the match. The New England Revolution (5-8-8) extended their unbeaten streak to 7 games with the tie against DC (6-8-7). The Revs are now in sole possession of fourth place in the East.

DC dominated the early possession as the Revs had trouble judging their passes in the rain from the approaching hurricane Charlie. Both teams saw a lot of chances, but every shot went wide or high as players had trouble keeping their footing on the wet surface

Five minutes after Alecko Eskandarian had a goal called offsides, Steve Ralston gave the Revs the lead. Pat Noonan sent the ball from the endline to Ralston at the top of the box. Ralston slipped, but managed to recover before taking the ball around Ben Olsen, making a nice run through the box and sending a left footed shot from 12 yards out into the upper left corner.

Less than a minute later, Dema Kovalenko ran through the Revolution defense before sending a shot on target that goalie Matt Reis saved, but the rebound fell to Jaime Moreno. Moreno cut around Avery John before sending a shot past a diving Reis and Brian Kamler.

The Revs came out a new team in the second half, controlling the possession and creating many chances. DC goalie Troy Perkins was called upon to deny Taylor Twellman and Pat Noonan on close range efforts.
DC took the lead against the run of play in the 56th minute when Kovalenko played a perfect through ball to Moreno allowing him to beat the Revolution defense. Moreno first took it around Reis and than faked out Ralston, sending the ball into the open net.

The Revs saw many good chances off set pieces before finally taking the lead. Avery John saw a header saved and a shot blocked. Shalrie Joseph also saw a shot blocked. Steve Nicol brought on Richie Baker and Felix Brillant in the 68th minute and Andy Dorman in the 85th minute. While Brillant didnít make much of an impact, Dorman and Baker did. Baker sent in a corner kick seconds after Dorman entered the game. The corner fell to Shalrie Joseph, who hit it back to Dorman. Dorman set a left-footed shot through a crowded box and into the far corner.

The Revs next face Kansas City on Saturday, August 21st. The match can be seen live on WB56 at 7:30 PM.
