Amazing saves by Brown and Cannon highlight 0-0 draw between the Revs and Rapids
DENVER, COL. (5/7/04)- Both the New England Revolution (1-2-2) and Colorado Rapids (1-1-3) had a few great goal scoring opportunities, but poor shot placement and amazing saves by goalkeepers Adin Brown and Joe Cannon kept both teams off the score sheet. For the third straight game the Revs have been playing with the same makeshift back-line and midfield and have only allowed 2 goals in those 3 games, while going undefeated in that stretch. The Rapids extended an undefeated streak of their own, going undefeated in their last 15 home games and tying the MLS record in front of an extremely poor attendance of 7,784. The tie was a very good result for the Revs considering they were forced to play a man down for over 15 minutes after Shalrie Joseph was ejected in the 75th minute.

The Rapids dominated the first half, but the Revs defense managed to prevent them from getting any clear cut scoring opportunities.

The Revs almost took the lead in the 42nd minute, when Taylor Twellman was fouled around 40 yards from goal. Joe Franchino sent the free kick into the box and it was cleared by the Rapids, but only as far as Jay Heaps in the far right corner of the box. Heaps crossed it to a wide-open Twellman, who was right on the edge of the 6-yard box. Twellman brought the ball down with his chest and sent a hard shot on target. Rapidsí keeper Joe Cannon got down quickly and deflected the shot just enough so that it hit the cross bar and bounced back into play.

The game opened up in the second half and both teams saw plenty of scoring chances. Twellman saw another great chance denied by Cannon in the 56th minute, when he received the ball from a perfect lob by Jose Cancela. Twellman once again brought the ball down on his chest and sent a powerful shot on target from about 6 yards out, only to see it saved by Cannonís face. The rebound fell to Pat Noonan, who tried to beat Cannon while he was recovering, but saw his shot blocked by a diving Pablo Mastroeni.

Colorado had a great chance five minutes later, when David Castellanos received a through ball from Mark Chung. Castellanos then dribbled to the 6 yard box before sending a blazing shot over the crossbar. A minute later, Jean-Philippe Peguero sent a close-range chance just wide of the post.

Jose Cancela, who has been threatening to score on free kicks all season, nearly gave the Revs the lead when he sent a curling free kick from just outside the box around the Rapidsí wall and towards the upper-right corner of the net. Cannon managed to punch the ball out of bounds. On the ensuing corner kick, Clint Dempsey beat Cannon to Cancelaís cross, but headed it just over the net.

Four minutes later, the Revs were forced to play a man down, when Shalrie Joseph was given a red card for pulling down Chris Henderson on a breakaway. Colorado took control of the match from then on and would force Brown into many spectacular saves. Mark Chung, Gary Sullivan, and Ritchie Kotschau all saw chances to win the match for the Rapids, but saves by Brown, a block by Ralston, a wide shot and a save by the post kept the game at 0-0.

Adin Brown was named Man of the Match for his performance as he earned his first shutout of the season. The Revs next travel to Columbus to face the last place Crew on May 15th 4:00pm. The game can be seen on ESPN2.
