Editors Note: With it being Portuguese night at Gillette, this post has been translated into Portuguese to commemorate it. For the English version, click here. 

Em seu único jogo em casa no mês de agosto, a Revolução da Nova Inglaterra assumiu o Vancouver WhiteCaps sob as luzes no Gillette Stadium. Esta partida acontece de ser o primeiro jogo em casa da Revolução onde a MLS Video Review estava em uso. O primeiro jogo da Nova Inglaterra com o jogo foi no fim de semana passado contra o Chicago Fire no Toyota Park.

A partida de sábado com os WhiteCaps apresentou um jogo de ida e volta onde a Revolução da Nova Inglaterra prevaleceu 1-0.

A partida começou com uma ida e volta com ambas as oportunidades comerciais. Não houve uma oportunidade de pontuação clara para qualquer dos lados nos primeiros 10 minutos de ação.

O Play-By-Play

O primeiro tiro real para a New England Revolution foi uma grande falta de Kei Kamara nos 16 ‘. A coisa impressionante sobre o carro de Kamara foi a habilidade de segurar a bola numa grande distância sem perder a posse.

A próxima oportunidade da Nova Inglaterra chegou nos 20 ‘, com Teal Bunbury riscando a rede, mas o guarda-redes WhiteCaps, Stefan Marinovic estava lá para arrebatar-se no último segundo. Bunbury estava ativo cedo para a Revolução e teve mais uma oportunidade um minuto depois, que se transformou em uma salvação de rotina após um dar-e-ir.

No 41 ‘, um cartão amarelo foi entregue a Andrew Jacobson depois que ele se dirigiu para Gershon Koffie. Koffie conseguiu permanecer no campo depois de ser encarado pela equipe de treinamento do Rev.

Com todas as paralisações de lesões no primeiro semestre, houve 4 minutos de tempo de paralisação premiado antes do final da metade.

No tempo de paragem, Lee Nguyen recebeu um cartão amarelo depois de deslizar para um jogador de Whitecaps. A primeira metade terminou em 0-0.

2ª mão do empurrão por Bunbury

Nos 53 ‘, o estancamento foi interrompido por Bunbury, que bateu em casa uma bola no meio com a assistência que vem de Kelyn Rowe para fazer 1-0 em favor da Revolução. A eficácia de Bunbury e a criação de play-for para Nova Inglaterra foram estelares durante toda a partida.

O WhiteCaps em uma tentativa de rede do equalizador pegou a pressão. Vancouver por vários minutos colocou alta pressão e teve vários tiros na rede, incluindo algumas chamadas próximas.

Kamara recebeu um cartão amarelo de 63 ‘depois de um tackle deslizante. Esta partida foi preenchida com jogadores rodando no relvado e em pontos criaram alguns momentos tensos entre as duas equipes.

Vancouver era o principal suspeito de mergulho.

Nos 65 ‘, o treinador Jay Heaps enviou sua primeira substituição, Juan Agudelo, que entrou para Bunbury. Os fãs estavam clamando para ver Agudelo com a partida sendo Juan Agudelo Bobble na noite de cabeça na Gillette.

O contato do sorteio e o rolo no chão continuaram para Vancouver. Desta vez chegou nos 69 ‘com Je-Vaughn Watson sendo entregue um cartão amarelo.

No pênalti, Cody Cropper fez uma salvação de layout, mas bateu a cabeça forte na postagem. Ele foi executado pelo protocolo de concussão, mas foi considerado elegível para jogar.

A Nova Inglaterra pressionou algumas vezes mais enquanto a Nova Inglaterra reduziu o jogo para manter a posse de mastigar algum relógio. Vancouver, em um esforço para permanecer relevante, continuou a tentar atrair contatos ao passarem. Para o crédito da Nova Inglaterra, eles conseguiram preservar, apesar do impacto que aconteceu.

Você poderia visivelmente ver a frustração nos rostos dos jogadores da Revolução, enquanto os funcionários continuavam a morder o flagrante flutuante de Vancouver.

Houve um tempo de paragem de 6 minutos para terminar o jogo com Vancouver aplicando uma pressão imensa. A defesa da Nova Inglaterra ficou forte e conseguiu manter e manter a vitória por 1 a 0.

Revolution Send Fans Home Happy In Record Breaking Win

New England Revolution

With any hopes of making the playoffs diminished thanks to a New York Red Bulls win last week, it may have seemed like there was nothing left to play for in the Revolution’s season. But in fact the Revs had an opportunity to do something that had not been done in the club’s history. Win 12 games at home in a single season. They have had 11 home wins twice before including the magical MLS Cup run in 2014. The Revs were also looking to play spoiler to an New York City FC team who would clinch a playoff bye with a win. So in the final home match of the season, the Revolution wanted to give the faithful at Gillette one last time to celebrate this year.

After a quiet first 25 minutes the Revolution encountered a game changer they had seen four times in the past five games, a red card. This time though, the call went in the Revolution’s favor after 2nd year player Jack Harrison slid studs up into Teal Bunbury. The Revolution were a man up with plenty of time left.

The Revs failed to capitalize in the first half entering halftime in a scoreless draw. Then in the 51st minute, Diego Fagundez took a shot from just outside the box on an assist from Andrew Ferrall for his first goal since June 3rd. Later in the second minute of stoppage time, Fagundez found the back of the net again on his own rebound off NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson.

The Revolution were minutes away from a shutout when only seconds after Fagundez’s second goal, NYCFC sent the ball up field and it fell to Khiry Shelton who headed it over Brad Knighton who was visibly upset that he had lost his clean sheet on such a freak play.

Despite that scare, the Revolution ended the game on top 2-1. The win was a bizarre, bittersweet moment for the team. They had broken a club record for home wins despite not making the playoffs. The Revolution have one more match on Sunday in Montreal before they say goodbye to the 2017 season.

New England Revolution

Before Sunday’s final home match of the season, the Revolution kicked off Fan Appreciation Night by announcing the recipients of the Revolution team awards. The awards are handed out each year to players from both the senior team and the Revolution Academy.

Antonio Delamea won both Defender of the Year and Most Valuable Player. Delamea has proven to be one of the Revolutions best signings when he transferred from Slovenian side Olimpija Ljubljana, becoming the first Slovenian to play in Major League Soccer. He scored one goal and one assist and played 2,547 minutes in 29 matches for the Revs this season. He was also added to a shortlist for both MLS defender and newcomer of the year. With the MVP win, Delamea joins a list of Revolution legends that include Shalrie Joseph, Matt Reis, and Taylor Twellman.

The Player’s Player of the Year which is voted on by the clubs players was awarded to Teal Bunbury. His season had a frustrating start. After spending most of the season on the bench, Bunbury made his first start on July 2nd against the Philadelphia Union. Since then he has scored 7 goals in 14 games becoming one of the most in-form players in Major League Soccer. In an interview on this week’s Far Post Podcast, Teal Bunbury was asked about the ups and downs of the season. “I’m always a guy who wants to work hard in training, wants to work hard in the games but just want’s a fair shot” he said. “If I’m out there I’m playing for my teammates”.

For the fourth straight year, the Humanitarian of the Year went to Kelyn Rowe. Rowe’s presence off the field has been as important as his contributions on the field. He’s worked with several charities including the Jessie Rees Foundation and Kelyn’s NEGU (Never Ever Give Up) Crew. The latter was started in 2015 and gives children with cancer a chance to experience a Revolution game and walk around the Gillette Stadium pitch. This year was also a highlight year for Rowe on the field. He was called up to the United States National Team for the first time to compete in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in which he scored a goal against Nicaragua and helped the US win the tournament.

The award for Academy Player of the Year went to Joe Britto. The 18-year-old midfielder from Connecticut has been called up to youth national team camps since 2013. He supports the Revolution, Benfica, Portugal, and the US Men’s National Team, and his favorite players are Neymar, Pablo Aimar and Christiano Ronaldo. Britto is attending UNC Charlotte who was the Conference USA regular season champions in 2016.

Revolution Officially Eliminated From Playoff Contention

New England Revolution

The New England Revolution’s playoff hopes are now a mathematical impossibility. This is thanks to the New York Red Bulls beating the Vancouver Whitecaps Saturday, securing the 6th and final playoff spot in the eastern conference. New York won decisively 3-0 having 56.8% possession and 18 total shots to Vancouver’s 3.

The Revolution’s chances of making the playoffs were slim and relied on a lot of scoreboard watching for both the team and the fans. They needed to win both their final two games and New York would have to get less than three points in their final three games. Before Saturday, the Red Bulls were on an eight-game winless streak. That streak did not include a loss in the US Open Cup Final against Sporting Kansas City.

New England still has two matches remaining this season. Their final home match is on Sunday, October 15th. That match will be fan appreciation night at Gillette Stadium and all week leading up to the match. The last match of the season will see them travel to Montreal to take on the Impact.
