At Gillette Stadium Saturday night the New England Revolution played the Philadelphia Union to a 1-1 draw. Forward Gustavo Bou, made his first MLS start since March 5, converted a second-half penalty kick for his first goal of the season. Philadelphia’s Mikael Uhre capitalized on a New England mistake to tie the match in the 76th minute.
New England extended its unbeaten streak in league play to five matches, finishing the month of May with a 2-0-3 record in MLS play. The Revolution also extended its unbeaten streak against the Union to five matches with Saturday’s draw. New England is 3-0-2 in its last five meetings with Philadelphia.
After the match New England Revolution Sporting Director and Head Coach Bruce Arena said, “We played a good game. Unfortunately, we didn’t collect three points.” When asked about Dylan Borrero’s performance, Arena said “Yeah, he did okay. It’s going to take him a little time. This is all new to him, but you could see there’s a lot of potential there.”
The Revolution are off next weekend for the international break and will return to action on Sunday, June 12 at 3:00 p.m. against Western Conference foe Sporting Kansas City.
