First place Revs extend winning streak, beat Chicago 2-0
Foxboro, MA. – The New England Revolution continued to build their lead in first place with a dominating 2-0 victory over the second place Chicago Fire. The win extended the Revs winning streak to five games and leaves them unbeaten on the season with a 5-0-1 record. New England is currently 6 points ahead of the Chicago Fire for first place in the Eastern Conference with the Revs having played one less game than the Fire.

Chicago took control of the match and held it for about the first 30 minutes as heavy wind and rain prevented either team from much aerial passing. The Fire, however, were not able to turn their possession into quality chances and did little to trouble Revs goalkeeper Matt Reis.

Pat Noonan gave the Revs the lead in the 34th minute. Clint Dempsey ran into the 18-yard box before sending a pass to Noonan just outside of the 6-yard box. Noonan then cut back, before sending a left-footed shot into the back of the net.

After the goal, the Revolution took over the match and held most of the possession going into half time.

The Revs came out of the break pressuring Chicago even more. The pressure paid off in the 58th minute when Clint Dempsey doubled the score. Taylor Twellman sent in a cross from the right side of the box that Steve Ralston flicked to Dempsey who was headed the other way. Changing directions, Dempsey managed to flick the ball over Fire ‘keeper Zach Thornton for his league-leading 5th goal of the season.

The Revs continued to create many chances, but were unable to put another one past Thornton.

“They were the better team for the first 20 minutes, and then I think we started getting in the game, from then on,” said Head Coach Steve Nicol after the match. “I wouldn't say we were in control, but we certainly had the edge on them."
