Revolution Vs. DC United: Santos Strikes For United, New England Down 3-2

The New England Revolution enjoyed level scores for only eleven minutes before the home side re-asserted their lead. Maicon Santos took advantage of lax defending from the Revolution to power his side ahead 3-2.

The move started with Santos, as the Brazilian turned two New England defenders before slotting an excellent pass to Dwayne De Rosario. The reigning MLS MVP took the ball to the byline down the left, then cut the ball back to the top of the eighteen. Santos had continued his run and picked that moment to make a late entrance into the box, and no Revs defender tracked him, allowing the striker to use his left foot to fire past Matt Reis and give his team the lead.

The Revolution nearly had a third themselves before that when Saer Sene was again through on goal against Hamid, but this time as Sene attempted to take a touch around the rushing goalkeeper, Hamid managed to take it off the Frenchman's feet and snuff the opportunity.

As of the 70th minute, the Revolution have also burned their final two substitutions: Kelyn Rowe replaced Lee Nguyen and Jose Moreno is on for Blake Brettschneider.
