Second-half Comeback Earns Revs Draw

The New England Revolution came out flat and fell to an early 2-0 deficit against a surprisingly impressive D.C. United side before rallying for two strikes in the second half to salvage a 2-2 tie.

D.C., currently last place in the Eastern Conference, saw their offense ignite early and pounded the Revs goal with shots. Luciano Emilio put the visitors in front in the 15th minute, but goalkeeper Matt Reis made some huge saves to make sure D.C. went into the half with only a 1-0 lead. Fred doubled their lead early in the second half, but this time the Revs offense came to life with goals from Adam Cristman and Kheli Dube giving the Revs a 2-2 tie.

DC took the lead in the 15th minute, after the Revs failed to clear a DC cross. Simms got the ball and put in a hard shot from the top of the box that was well saved by Reis. Reis, however, gave up a rebound and Luciano Emilio was right there to put it into the back of the net.
