The New England Revolution and the Orlando City SC drew 2-2 draw in front of a season high crowd of 25,203 at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night.
Diego Fagundez opened the scoring for New England in the 7th minute, but Orlando City’s Kevin Molino equalized in the 30th minute. Juan Agudelo put the Revolution back in front just one minute after entering the match as a substitute in the 70th minute.
Conceding the late goal has been the Achilles heel of the Revs this season and it was again on Saturday. New England have drawn four times after either rallying or surrendering leads from the 89th minute on Saturday, allowing a 90th-minute goal by Carlos Rivas in extending their winless streak to five games.
After 10 games the Revolution are 1-2-7. That is the fewest number of victories over the opening 10 games in their 20-year history. It is only because of the Eastern Conference’s mediocrity that Jay Heaps side still is very much in the playoff hunt. That is if they can avoid their usual mid-summer swoon.
Next up for the Revs is a cross-country trip to meet the LA Galaxy next Sunday at 3:30 EST. The Galaxy are unbeaten at home this season ( 3-0-1) and it is difficult to see Jay Heaps side getting anything from this match.
