Revolution Vs. United Score Update: Rowe and Pontius Trade Quick Goals, Tallies Level At 1-1

The New England Revolution and D.C. United played about a half hour of sloppy, uninspired soccer before the match came alive with two goals in three minutes. Kelyn Rowe opened the scoring with a screaming drive at close range before Chris Pontius equalized with a worm-burner past Matt Reis.

Rowe's goal began with a long ball out of the back from Darrius Barnes. Jerry Bengtson got up and flicked the ball on with his head, putting it on the feet of Diego Fagundez in space. Fagundez picked his head up and saw Rowe streaking alongside him on the right, then played a simple diagonal ball to the former UCLA standout. Rowe took a touch into the box and then ripped a screamer right over Hamid's head and off the underside of the crossbar to get the visitors on the board.

Unfortunately, D.C. wasted no time replying. With Florian Lechner lying injured on the other half of the field, United streaked into the attacking third on the counter. Branko Boskovic found himself on the ball and played a clever back-heel to Pontius, who teed up the ball and ripped a daisycutter that beat Reis to his right post and found the bottom corner of the net.
