Dube Does it Again

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Kheli Dube's second goal in as many matches also proved to be another game winner as the Revolution rookie gave the Revs a 1-0 win over Columbus in with an 89th-minute goal Saturday night.

Goalkeeper Matt Reis had come up huge 15 minutes earlier to keep the match scoreless and the Revs held on after Dube's heroics to move into a tie for first with Columbus in the overall standings. The loss marked the first time the Crew had failed to win at home and put an end to their six-game unbeaten run.

Dube's late game winner came after some good work at the top of the box between Steve Ralston and Shalrie Joseph earned the Revolution a penalty kick. Ralston played a pass to Joseph just outside the box, who immediately sent it back to the Revolution captain who was just inside the arc. Ralston then turned to shoot, but was tripped by Ezra Hendrickson. Referee Richard Heron immediately pointed to the spot and Joseph stepped up to take the penalty.

The Grenadian international sent a hard shot to the lower right corner, but Crew 'keeper Will Hesmer was equal to the task and made an impressive save. However, Dube was the first to the rebound and slotted it past Hesmer for his second career goal.
