DC Ousts Revs from Open Cup

The New England Revolution fell short in their quest to defend last year’s U.S. Open Cup Championship Tuesday. Opting to rest the majority of their starters and not even bothering to bring a full bench, the Revolution fell, 3-1, to a D.C. United side that was playing their best lineup available.

The Revs fell behind just four minutes into the match after 2007 MLS Golden Boot winner Luciano Emilio headed a cross from Bryan Namoff past Revs goakeeper Doug Warren to open the scoring.

At least Igwe wasn't slotted as a CB this time, and Nicol actually brought some defenders to come off the bench. Questionable move putting Wellsie at RB...he fouls enough as it is at his regular right wing spot, and it sounded like he was in over his head for much of the match in the back. Well...there's always CONCACAF Champions League, I suppose. I'll be curious to see how seriously Nicol takes that tourney as the MLS season begins to wind down.
