The New England Revolutions are in danger of becoming the Buffalo Bills of soccer as they lost their third MLS final in a row. The Houston Dynamo again had the edge when it came to crunch time. Last year, Brian Ching came through in extra time with the equalizer within a minute of Twellman’s go ahead goal for the Revs.
This year, the Revs mercifully did not have to wait that long to be done in as Dwayne De Rosario sealed it in regulation time scoring the winning goal through a bullet of a header of a cross by Brad Davis. He managed it while marked by Jay Heaps. Twellman started the Revs in great fashion scoring a goal in the 20th minute off a perfectly placed Steve Ralston cross which he headed into the right hand corner of the goal. Joseph Ngwanya scored the equalizer from a De Rosario cross from the left flank in the 61st minute and 13 minutes later it was De Rosario’s turn to score the match winner.
