Chicago continues their winless streak, with yet another draw this season.
Quincy Amarikwa scored once again for the Fire, he also received a second yellow card in the 73rd minute. Lee Nguyen scored for the Revs in the 31st minute. Kevin Alston received a red card for the Revs in the 90th minute, leaving both teams finishing a man down. Neither team could break the deadlock in the second 45 minutes. The Fire had a golden chance in stoppage time on a penalty stopped by Bobby Shuttleworth in-goal.
Ironically, the lone goal for the Revs was from a Lee Nguyen penalty. This has to be considered a bad game for Chicago, as they could have finally ended their streak that goes back to the end of last season. However, a draw after playing the final 17 minutes a man down could be a bright spot for them. New England’s defense held up for them, they absorbed all the pressure caused by Chicago, and Shuttleworth made huge saves to earn a solid point away from home.
Chicago are now 0-1-6 on the year and will try for their first win on May 3 at home against Real Salt Lake, while New England are now 2-3-3 and will take on Sporting Kansas City next Saturday at home.
Man of the Match: Bobby Shuttleworth. Not a question, he was huge in-goal today for New England, and his PK stop literally won the game for his team. Fantastic game.
