New England Revolution Draw With San Antonio In Mobile Mini Sun Cup Match

Published

on

In their second match of the Mobile Mini Sun Cup match the New England Revolution eclipsed their second draw in as many games with a 3-3 draw with San Antonio FC.

Teal Bunbury had the hot foot in this one with a pair of first-half goals alongside an Antonio Delamea header that had the Revs tallying 3 first-half goals. Unfortunately for New England, their three first-half goals were the only ones they scored in the entire match.

“I think we’ve been focusing a lot on fitness and I think when it can pay off like that, I think it’s great” Bunbury said after the match.”, it’s huge, and it motivates us more to be able to pick those times when to press and when not to. When everybody’s bought into wanting to work for each other, and our fitness level is high enough, we’re going to be able to outwork a lot of teams.”

San Antonio entered the second half with a two-goal deficit but was able to quickly recover taking advantage of New Englands six man half-time substitution by scoring two goals in a three-minute span off the foot of Éver Guzmán.

“The second half gave away two sloppy goals, but it’s always nice when some of the players that come in, sort of like a Brandon, he came in and got 90 minutes, Scotty [Caldwell] another 90 minutes, Mark, who hasn’t played against professional teams very much at all, only a few games in his career, it’s nice for them to go two goals behind and then try to hang on and then get back on top. There was a lot of good to take from the first half, some bad and then some good from the second half. I think it was important, the minutes are always important and it’s always essential that we get no injuries.” said Head Coach Brad Friedel.

New England had Brandon Bye, Scott Caldwell, and Brad Knighton all playing the full 90 minutes and the match also saw the debut of Revolution Academy player Kevin Vang who joined the Revs on Friday.

The New England Revolution will play two more preseason games in the Mobile Mini Sun Cup before kicking of their regular season campaign on March 3rd at the Philadelphia Union. The Revs will return to action in Tuscon on Wednesday against Sporting Kansas City and will then close out the tournament on Saturday against an opponent that has yet to be determined.

Revolution Draw With FC Dallas In First Mobile Mini Sun Cup Match

Published

The New England Revolution opened up the first of four Mobile Mini Sun Cup matches in Tuscon Arizona with a 2-2 draw against FC Dallas on Wednesday.

New England had a strong second half effort with both of their goals coming in the second with Cristian Penilla and Diego Fagundez helping the Revs come back twice against Dallas.

“I don’t think we all want to concede first, but sometimes it happens that way. I think you saw form the team, we all stepped it up. We got a goal back and the game changed a little bit, and we kept attacking on them and we knew the game was going our way. But then the game is just one way and [then] another, but at the end, we got it done.” Fagundez said to the media after the game.

New England’s ability to come back was nice to see, but Head Coach Brad Friedel sees a lot of chances to improve.

“FC Dallas is ahead again in fitness, which is really good for us because we’ve played a lot of teams that have been a little bit ahead. They’ve got a [CONCACAF] Champions League game just around the corner, so that was good that we got to play them. I thought other than the first 10 minutes, which were a little slow for us, I was really happy with a lot of the chances we created. Really happy with the way that we were building out of the back. There was a lot more bravery, if you like, on the ball, and the players are starting to be used to the system.”

The Revolution will play three more preseason games in the Mobile Mini Sun Cup before kicking off the regular season at the Philadelphia Union on March 3. The club will return to action in Tucson on Saturday, Feb. 17 against San Antonio FC and will then play Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday, Feb. 21, before closing out the tournament against an opponent to be determined on Saturday, Feb. 24.
