It has gone from bad to worse for the New England Revolution, as Sporting Kansas City has doubled their lead through Kei Kamara in the 39th minute. Matt Reis made two saves in the sequence, but it wasn't enough to keep the ball out of the net.
Good interplay between Bobby Convey and former Rev Seth Sinovic launched Sinovic to the byline in the left channel of the eighteen-yard box. The fullback launched a cross toward the center of the six-yard box that Reis palmed away, but only as far as Kei Kamara. Kamara's first shot was saved well by Reis, but the rebound fell right back to the big striker, and he buried his second attempt.
Shalrie Joseph could have done more to close down Sinovic's cross and perhaps Reis could have done better with his initial save off the cross, but again it seems to be Kansas City's superior numbers that is allowing them to swarm the penalty area and overwhelm the New England defense. The Revs will look to hold on until halftime, when they will hope to regroup.
