Revolution extend streak to ten games with 1-1 tie against Kansas City
FOXBORO, MA. - The New England Revolution extended their team record unbeaten run to ten games with a 1-1 tie against the Kansas City Wizards. The Revolution were without forward Pat Noonan and midfielders Steve Ralston and Clint Dempsey who were away with the US National Team, as well as Avery John who was with the Trinidad and Tobago National Team. Kansas City was without Kerry Zavagnin and Josh Wolff, also away with their national teams. Shalrie Joseph, listed as doubtful due to a broken nose received on Thursday, played the whole match.

The Revolution took control of the match early on and dominated the possession for most of the half. Their pressure on Kansas City’s backline paid off in the 17th minute, when Bermudian Khano Smith scored his first goal of the season. Smith, making his first start in place of Pat Noonan, hammered home a Jose Cancela corner kick from close range.

Taylor Twellman was denied a goal in the 36th minute, when his header off of a Cancela free kick beat goalie Bo Oshoniyi but was cleared off of the line by Jimmy Conrad.

It appeared the Revs had doubled their lead in the 39th minute, when Twellman sent home a James Riley cross with a diving header. Referee Alex Prus ruled the goal offsides. On replays it appeared Twellman was onside.

Kansas City tied the game against the run of play in the 51st minute, when Sasha Victorine headed home a Jose Burciaga, Jr. free kick. The bouncing header was just out of reach of a diving Matt Reis.

Twellman went down holding his left leg in the 67th minute. Last year Twellman was forced to miss six games with a right hamstring strain and with a left hamstring strain this time, according to the Boston Globe, he’s expected to miss six to eight weeks. Jamie Holmes replaced Twellman and made his first team debut for the Revs.

The Revs continued to pressure the Wizards as the match wore down but were unable to get another goal. Man of the Match Jose Cancela, who had provided a lot of the Revolution’s offense was surprisingly substituted out for Cassio, making just his second appearance. in the 79th minute.

“We like to win at home,” Head Coach Steve Nicol said after the match. “But we can’t be too disappointed. Kansas City are a well-drilled team. If you give them chances they’ll punish you. And the goal they got really just spurred them on, but we didn’t lose anymore goals and I think we more deserved a point.”

The undefeated Revs head off to Kansas City to once again face the Wizards next Saturday, with their national team players rejoining them. The game can be seen live at 8:00PM on WB56.
