The New England Revolution were finally able to snap their six game MLS losing streak. Their last league win was against Chicago July 23.

Both sides were missing key players due to international call ups. New England were without forward Kei Kamara as he was away on national team duties for Sierra Leone, as was Tim Howard and Jermaine Jones (later withdrawn for knee injury) for the USA National team.

Not only was this a crucial win to help get them back in the playoff hunt, which they are currently on the out looking in, it was a good performance from the whole team against a good mls team.

It was Kei’s game day replacement Juan Agudelo who had the first goal for the Revs.

Later in the first half, Colorado was called for a foul in their PK box on Kelyn Rowe. I however didn’t feel this was a foul. But unfortunately for New England, Lee Nguyen hit the post on the penalty kick

Lee Nguyen’s woes continued later in the first half when he hit post again on another scoring chance.

Later in the match, in the 2nd half New England doubled their lead after a brilliant bit of offense, when Diego Fagundez, dribbling down the middle of the pitch at the Rapids defense, connected a pass to his left when Chris Tierney was making a run, putting away his shot.

The Revs would need a total team effort to win this game, including a couple of good saves from Brad Knighton to preserve the win and shutout.
