Men Down in Loss to Wizards

The Revolution lost, 3-1, to the Kansas City Wizards Saturday, but more importantly lost both Gabriel Badilla and Khano Smith for Thursday’s playoff opener after both received red card ejections.

The Revs fell down a man and a goal 26 minutes in when Badilla fouled Claudio Lopez in the box and then destroyed any realistic hope of a comeback 16 minutes later when Smith committed a reckless foul on Herculez Gomez to earn himself a red card. Kansas City put its advantage to good use, tallying two more goals before Jeff Larentowicz scored a last minute consolation goal. The loss leaves the Revs winless in their last six matches and with only one win in their last 10.

The Revolution started off with a 4-4-2 formation for the second week in a row, keeping the starting line-up unchanged. The team remains winless since April when using a four-man backline.
