Revs can’t hold 2 goal lead against ten-man Earthquakes
San Jose, CA. - The New England Revolution (4-8-6) finally had some luck against the San Jose Earthquakes (5-6-6), taking a two goal lead, despite trailing in every major offensive statistic. With a two goal lead and a man advantage going into stoppage time, the game seemed all but over for the ’Quakes, but two surprising goals in stoppage time helped San Jose earn a 2-2 draw against a tired New England squad. A win would’ve moved the Revs into 4th, while the tie leaves both the Revs and ‘Quakes in last place in the Eastern and Western Conferences, respectively.

Playing their first game all season without All-Star rookie Clint Dempsey due to injury, the Revs managed to get an early lead in the 25th minute. Richie Baker sent in a cross from the right wing that got over Taylor Twellman, but went right to All-Star Pat Noonan, who headed it in from about 10 yards out.

San Jose almost equalized right before half-time, but Marshall Leonard managed to head clear a header from Brian Ching off the goal-line.

Jose Cancela scored his first goal from open play in his MLS career in the 54th minute, when a poor Todd Dunivant clearance fell right to Cancela at the top of the box. Cancela cut in before sending a left footed shot off the post and into the net.

The next six minutes saw several opportunities for the ‘Quakes, including one that banged off the crossbar by Ronnie Ekelund and a free kick denied by a great save from goalie Matt Reis.

The Revs went up by a man in the 62nd minute, when Troy Dayak elbowed Shalrie Joseph in the face. Dayak was immediately showed a red card and forced to leave the match.

The ‘Quakes took over the match after the ejection, despite being down a man and had a goal denied in the 69th minute, When Dwayne De Rosario scored from inside the goal box. Unfortunately for San Jose, rookie referee Andrew Chapin had blown his whistle for a foul Joe Franchino committed on Brian Mullan before the ball even got to De Rosario. The Revs and San Jose both argued with the referee before Franchino was awarded a yellow card, the goal was called back, and San Jose was awarded a free kick.

Landon Donovan brought the ‘Quakes within one in the first minute of stoppage time, when he slammed home from close-range a back-heel pass from Brian Ching for his fourth goal of the season.

Ching proved the hero in the last minute of stoppage time when he easily sent home a De Rosario cross from less than a yard out.

The Revs have the next week off for the All-Star break, before taking on Columbus at Gillette Stadium for a match that could see the Revs move up as far as second place in the weak Eastern Conference. The game can be seen live on ESPN2 at 4:00PM on August 7th.
