Twellman, Revs stun D.C.
Foxboro, MA. – The New England Revolution began to distance themselves from the chasing pack with a 2-1 comeback win over defending champs D.C. United. DC dominated a lot of the possession and got off to an early lead, but the Revs managed to come back and get the win.

Taylor Twellman thought he had given the Revs the lead in the 15th minute, when he headed a Jose Cancela free kick over goalie Nick Rimando. Twellman was ruled offside on the play.

DC United took the lead in the 36th minute when Christian Gomez passed the ball to Santino Quaranta at the top of the box. Quaranta hammered it into the upper right corner of the net past goalie Doug Warren for the 1-0 lead.

Warren, who was making his first MLS start for the Revs, made 4 saves on the night to keep the score at 1-0.

DC gifted the Revs a goal in the 47th minute, when a long ball intended for Taylor Twellman, by Jay Heaps was headed over Rimando by DC defender Bobby Boswell. The ball landed in the net for Boswell’s third own goal of the season.

DC’s Argentinean defender Facundo Erpen, making his league debut for DC, earned a yellow card in the 88th minute for diving, after he pushed Twellman to the ground then dove to the ground himself, faking an injury.

Dema Kovalenko was sent off in stoppage time for a reckless tackle on James Riley. Kovalenko slid in from the side, well ahead of the ball and took out Riley’s planted right leg. Kovalenko, known for the leg-breaking tackles he has committed, was immediately shown a red card.

Two minutes later, substitute Andy Dorman again proved his worth with some more late game heroics. Dorman sent a perfect lofted ball into the box where Taylor Twellman headed it past Rimando for his league leading 11th goal of the season.

“I think, as normal, it was a battle royal out there between us and D.C., because it always is” said Head Coach Steve Nicol. “I think the truth of the matter is that we were fortunate to get the win. As far as the football we played we can play far better than we showed tonight. But, as usual, we showed that as far as guts and courage and passion, we have it in abundance. That’s what won us the game.”
