Sapong.  Graham Zusi was the first to take advantage of the man advantage, cleaning up in front of goal in the 28th minute. Kei Kamara sent in a ball from the right, and Zusi slid to shoot. New England goalkeeper Matt Reis did well to block, but the rebound fell to Zusi, who fired home while still on the ground.  The second goal came on another putback, this time by Kamara. Left winger Bobby Convey drove into the area and crossed to Kamara in the 39th minute. Reis blocked his first low shot, but Kamara pounced on the rebound and drove it home.  Sapong, starting at center forward with Teal Bunbury on U.S. U-23 national team duty, put the game away less than two minutes into the second half when he scored from point-blank range after left back Seth Sinovic pulled back a low pass from the byeline.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Chance Myers, Aurelien Collin (Lawrence Olum 59), Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Roger Espinoza, Julio Cesar (Luke Sassano 76)- Kei Kamara, Graham Zusi (Paulo Nagamura 57), Bobby Convey - C.J.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City saw their three-game unbeaten run come to an end, going down to a 2-1 defeat by the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. Sporting now have 36 points from 20 matches, still leading the Eastern Conference. LAST MATCH  The Dynamo took the lead in the 25th minute following a 23-pass sequence. Will Bruin took an Andre Hainault ball into the box and slotted a pass to Calen Carr, who had little trouble placing the ball past SKC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen.  Sporting evened terms in the 41st minute. After Teal Bunbury was fouled from behind in the box by Hainault, prompting referee Mark Kadlecik to point to the spot, Kei Kamara converted the resulting penalty.  But just before halftime, SKC were reduced in numbers when Peterson Joseph was sent off for a sweeping, two-footed tackle from behind on Carr.  The home side hit for the winner in the 79th minute. After setting Brad Davis up out wide, Carr made a run in the box for the return ball, collided with the pass in a mass of bodies and watched it trickle into the goal.  Sporting head coach Peter Vermes made three changes to the team that knocked off the Columbus Crew 2-0 at Crew Stadium. Michael Harrington came into the back four for Chance Myers, Michael Thomas started in midfield for Roger Espinoza, and Teal Bunbury came in up top for Soony Saad.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-2-3-1): Jimmy Nielsen - Michael Harrington, Aurelien Collin, Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic (Chance Myers 79) - Michael Thomas, Paulo Nagamura - Kei Kamara, Peterson Joseph (sent off 47+), Jacob Peterson (Bobby Convey 82) - Teal Bunbury (C.J. Sapong 45). TEAM NEWS  Sporting had a season-low eight attempts at goal for a second consecutive match, their third game with that total this season. ��� “Our performance was good but unfortunately they got one goal and it was a lot of effort put out by the guys to walk away with nothing,” said SKC manager Peter Vermes. “It is a good experience to play a man down. It’s good to see what it’s like at this point in the season and to be able to do what we did because we did it for a pretty long time.”  With Peterson Joseph suspended for the New England match, and Roger Espinoza with Honduras for the 2012 London Olympic Games, there is a question if Graham Zusi will be able to return to the Sporting lineup either.  “If he was able to play (against Houston), he would have played,” Vermes said. “So I have no idea at this point.”  Jacob Peterson was able to start and feature for 82 minutes, just four days after suffering an ankle injury against FC Dallas that forced him off before halftime.  “He made a great run into the box to draw the foul,” Vermes said. “That’s what we want from those guys, and he did a great job of getting in there.”  Bobby Convey made his first appearance in nine matches, since May 19, coming on for the final eight minutes. He had been sidelined with a series of calf strains.  “He was good,” Vermes said. “He was actually very good. He gave us a lot of energy when he came in.”  Kei Kamara took over the team lead with his seventh goal. His last two goals have come on penalty kicks; his last goal from open play came May 27.  “I think we were extremely well organized, and didn’t give much away even when we were a man down,” said goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen. “We didn’t give much away and held a lot of the possession. It didn’t really get dangerous. We created some small stuff but never got really dangerous.” NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION The New England Revolution went down to a second consecutive defeat, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Montréal Impact on Wednesday evening at Stade Saputo. The Revolution are in a tie for seventh place in the Eastern Conference with 22 points from 19 games. LAST MATCH  The Impact took in the 28th minute on a penalty kick from Patrice Bernier, but not before referee Fotis Bazakos had the attempt re-taken not once, but twice.  The Revolution pulled even a minute before halftime. Lee Nguyen hammered a blast from long range that hit the crossbar and rebounded off the legs of an airborne Donovan Ricketts and into the back of the net.  But the Impact scored the winner in the 67th minute. Justin Mapp flighted in a cross from the left flank and Sanna Nyassi, standing at the far post, blasting a first-time volley past goalkeeper Matt Reis at the near post.  Revolution head coach Jay Heaps made three changes to the team that fell 1-0 to Toronto FC at Gillette Stadium. Darrius Barnes came into central defense for Stephen McCarthy, and Kelyn Rowe and Ryan Guy came into the team for Fernando Cardenas and Blake Brettschneider.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION (4-2-3-1): Matt Reis - Kevin Alston, A.J. Soares, Darrius Barnes, Chris Tierney - Clyde Simms (Blake Brettschneider 65), Benny Feilhaber, Kelyn Rowe (Fernando Cardenas 79), Lee Nguyen, Ryan Guy - Saer Sene (Sainey Nyassi 79) TEAM NEWS  The Revolution have suffered consecutive losses for a third time this season. Their season-long losing streak is three games (April 5-28).  Overall, it wasn’t a good performance,” Revolution head coach Jay Heaps said. “Unfortunately, we didn’t have enough guys who had a good enough game. We lost the ball in areas where it cost us. It was good to get back in the game after the first goal. But in the second half, I thought we would could have come out little bit sharper, we were a little bit flat.  Darrius Barnes made his first start of the season,coming into central defense with Stephen McCarthy sidelined with concussion-like symptoms. Shalrie Joseph had come on for McCarthy in the Toronto match; he was out with back stiffness.  “We've shown all year that we have some fight in us, whether we're up a goal or down a goal. We showed that again tonight,” said Barnes. “Sometimes, it's going to go your way. Sometimes, it's not. Sometimes, it's your night. Sometimes, it's not.”  Lee Nguyen scored his second goal in three games, with all four of his Revolution goals having come over the last 10 matches.  “Tactically, we have things that we need to improve on. I think they got the ball in the middle a lot of the time. We needed to make some changes at halftime,” Heaps said. “Lee (Nguyen) helped us out with a fantastic goal. But after they got the goal in the second half, it was really difficult for us because we just wanted to push men forward.”  Ryan Guy made his first start since May 26, when he played in the center of midfield vs. D.C. United.  “It’s always difficult coming on the road. It was our first time here. We were maybe uncomfortable in a new place, despite the great atmosphere,” Guy said. “Overall, we just have to keep our heads up and get ready for Saturday now.”  After two matches on the substitutes’ bench, Matt Reis returned between the posts in place of Bobby Shuttleworth.  Sainey Nyassi made his season debut, coming on for the final 11 minutes in place of Saer Sene. It was the second time he and twin brother Sanna were on the same field at the same time; the first came last July 23 when Sanna was with Colorado.

Sporting Kansas City News, Notes and headlines RESULTS | Sporting Kansas City currently sit in first place of the Eastern Conference with a record of 11-6-3 (36 points). The team had a historic start to 2012, garnering seven straight wins to begin the season. However, Kansas City experienced a slight decrease in their momentum losing three games in a row before earning a draw against Western Conference foe Colorado Rapids at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. The momentum was back in Kansas City’s favor as the team won two Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup games against Orlando City SC and Colorado Rapids and added two MLS victories against the San Jose Earthquakes and Toronto FC. Sporting KC then went on the road and earned a tie at CenturyLink Field against Western Conference foe Seattle Sounders. The club has ten wins this season after just 17 matches. It took them 26 games in 2011 until they got their tenth win on August 28, 2011. Sporting KC experienced a second short slump in MLS play, suffering a 4-0 defeat to the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park followed by a 1-0 loss to rival Chicago Fire at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. However, in between the two MLS matches, Sporting Kansas City hosted the Dayton Dutch Lions in Open Cup competition, in which they earned a 3-0 victory to send them to the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup semi-finals. Sporting Kansas City got back on track in MLS competition in July when they beat Montreal 3-1 at Saputo Stadium followed by 0-0 home draw with the Houston Dynamo. Sporting KC then went on the road earning a 2-0 victory over the Columbus Crew moving them back up the standings and into sole possession of first place among Eastern Conference rivals before dropping a 2-1 decision against Houston in their first ever match at BBVA Compass Stadium. Sporting KC remain atop the Eastern Conference, ahead of New York Red Bulls by just one point. WHEN THEY LAST MET | Sporting Kansas City last played the New England Revolution on their 2012 home opener at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in front of a sell-out crowd of 19,777. Sporting KC earned the 3-0 victory over the Revolution after Stephen McCarthy was issued a straight red card for denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity in the 14th minute of play. Graham Zusi and Kei Kamara eached notched a goal and an assist in the match while C.J. Sapong added an insurance goal thanks to a well placed service from Seth Sinovic. Despite three goals and an ejection, perhaps the most rivetting part of the match occurred in the form of an outlandish celebration by Sporting Kansas City’s Sapong and Kamara. The celebration consisted of the two strikers preforming their version of an Irish jig. THREE NAMED TO MLS ALL-STAR FIRST XI | Sporting Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen, defender Aurelien Collin and midfielder Graham

Zusi were announced as members of the 2012 MLS All-Star First XI on July 8. The First XI are the 11 MLS players who received the most votes from fans at their positions from the 2012 MLS All-Star ballot. All three individuals were also selected for the 18-man gameday roster which was announced by MLS All-Star and D.C. United coach Ben Olsen on Sunday, July 15. The club’s three representatives, tied for most of any MLS team, will be available for selection to play against UEFA Champions League winners Chelsea FC on July 25 at PPL Park. LAMAR HUNT U.S. OPEN CUP |Sporting Kansas City advanced to the U.S. Open Cup Final for the first time since 2004 with a 2-0 win over the Philadelphia Union in the semifinal round. Jacob Peterson’s header off a set piece broke the deadlock in the 65th minute, and Graham Zusi’s 60-yard volley into an empty net sealed the victory in stoppage time. Sporting Kansas City will host Seattle Sounders FC in the final on August 8 at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park. The Sounders have won an unprecedented three straight U.S. Open Cups, and have not lost in the competition since August 12, 2008, when they were still a United Soccer League franchise. Sporting’s journey to the 2012 final began on May 29 with a 3-2 home victory over USL Pro Division side Orlando City in the Round of 32. A week later, Sporting defeated fellow MLS club Colorado Rapids, 2-0, to advance to the cup quarterfinals for the second straight season. A comprehensive 3-0 win over USL Pro’s Dayton Dutch Lions on June 26 booked Sporting’s spot in the semifinals at Philadelphia on Wednesday. Seattle reached its fourth consecutive U.S. Open Cup Final with wins over the Atlanta Silverbacks (5-1), Cal FC (5-0), San Jose Earthquakes (1-0) and Chivas USA (4-1). They have now gone 18 matches unbeaten in U.S. Open Cup play.

NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION AT SPORTING KANSAS CITY

MISCELLANEOUS TEAM NOTES ROAD TRIP CONTINES The Revs’ two-game road trip continues this weekend when the Revs travel from Toronto to Kansas City for Saturday’s match … the Revs will depart Montreal and arrive in Kansas City via Toronto on Thursday afternoon … this is the team’s only two-game road trip of the season … the Revs will be traveling to a very different weather pattern, as well … at kickoff on Wednesday night in Montreal, it was 72 degrees and dry … Kansas City is expected to bear temperatures of 100 degrees or more the four days the Revs are there, including a forecasted high of 100 degrees on Saturday. THIRD TIME’S THE CHARM AT LIVESTRONG SPORTING PARK The Revs travel to Kansas City from Montreal on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s tilt against Sporting KC … New England has yet to win at Livestrong Sporting Park as the Revs have gone 0-1-1 in the previous two meetings since the stadium’s opening in 2011 … the Revs suffered their worst loss of the season – a 3-0 Kansas City win – when the teams last met on March 17, after Stephen McCarthy was red-carded in the 14th minute … in the two previous matches at Livestrong Sporting Park, Kansas City has outscored the Revs, 4-1. A ROUGH PATCH AGAINST KC Sporting KC rebranded ahead of the 2011 season, but even with the name change, the Revs have struggled against KC in recent history … New England is 2-6-2 in their last 10 regular-season meetings against Kansas City, despite a 1-1-1 record since the beginning of last season … prior to that stretch of 10 games, New England had won three straight games against Kansas City from Aug. 2, 2007 to April 9, 2008. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MACCA Saturday is Stephen McCarthy’s 24th birthday … while he did not make the trip to Montreal with the team for its mid-week tilt against the Impact, the Revolution coaching staff said he would be able to re-join the club in Kansas City for Saturday’s game … he missed Wednesday’s match after a head-to-head collision in the fourth minute of last Saturday’s match against Toronto and was forced out of the game with concussive-like symptoms … however, here’s hoping – if he does make it to KC – that this trip is better than his last … on March 17, McCarthy was issued a red card in the 14th minute for denying a goal scoring opportunity. BUSY STRETCH CONTINUES Beginning last Saturday against Toronto and concluding at Kansas City on Saturday, the Revolution will wrap up its second three-games-in-eight-days stretches this season … the recent stretch started last Saturday with a home game against Toronto and continued Wednesday in Montreal … the Revs will have one more three-in-eight stretch this season: Aug. 29 vs. Chivas USA, Sept. 1 vs. Philadelphia and Wednesday, Sept. 5 vs. Columbus … all three of those games will be played at Gillette Stadium. ROAD TESTS TO ROUND OUT JULY After playing seven of nine games at home between May 12 and July 14, the Revs close out July with three straight road games, including Wednesday’s match at Montreal and Saturday’s game at Kansas City, before a Sunday night match at Philadelphia on July 29 ... the team opened the season playing six of its first nine matches on the road and will now play four of its next six matches away from Foxborough. RETURN OF THE ONE-GOAL GAMES Wednesday’s 2-1 loss at Montreal marked the Revs 10th one-goal game of the season … the loss pushed the team’s record to 2-8-0 in those contests … after playing eight one-goal games in the first 12 matches this season, the Revs went five games – from June 2 to July 8 – without a one-goal contest … the team’s most recent victory in a one-goal contest was a 2-1 win over Colorado on May 2, but the team has dropped its last four one-goal contests. TIME FOR A ROAD WIN Wednesday’s loss at Montreal was the team’s seventh away defeat of the year and the Revs are now 1-7-1 on the road this year … after dropping their first two road games of the year (1-0 at San Jose, March 10; 3-0 at Kansas City, March 17), the Revs picked up a 3-1 win at LA on March 31 … however, the Revolution is 0-5-1 in its last six road matches since that win, going winless on the road in April, May, June and so far in July. EARLY BOARDING HELPS The Revs have scored first in a match eight times this season, going 4-2-2 in those games, accounting for more than 60 percent of the games in which the Revs have taken points … however, in the 10 games in which the Revolution’s opponent scores first, New England is 2-7-1 … worse yet, the Revs are 0-5-0 on the road when their host scores first, but 2-1-0 at home when their visitors strike first. THREE TIMES (HOPEFULLY) NOT A CHARM After falling 1-0 to Toronto last Saturday and 2-1 at Montreal on Wednesday, the Revolution suffered back-to-back losses for the fourth time this season (March 10/March 17; April 5/April 14; April 14/April 28) … the last time – and only time – the Revs dropped three straight games this year came in April when the team went winless on the month, falling 1-0 at Dallas, 2-1

against D.C. and 1-0 at New York … two of the three times this year the team lost two straight, the team came back with a win – picking up a 1-0 victory over Portland after the first two losses of the season, and then a 2-1 win against Colorado following the April slide. NOT-SO-SPORTING BEHAVIOR BETWEEN TEAMS The Revolution and Sporting have had a tenuous recent history in the disciplinary department … in seven of the team’s last nine meetings overall – including one game in SuperLiga 2009 – at least one player from either team has been ejected … in each of the team’s four meetings in 2009 – three in the MLS regular-season and one in SuperLiga – a player was sent off: Emmanuel Osei (June 13), Michael Videira (June 24), Lance Watson (July 11) and Shalrie Joseph (Sept. 5) … while the two meetings in 2010 were red-free, both games in 2011 saw players sent to the showers early: Birahim Diop (April 23, originally called on Aurelien Collin during the game but later changed by MLS because of mis-identification) and A.J. Soares (July 30) … and already earlier this year, Stephen McCarthy was shown red on March 17. GOALKEEPER CHANGE-UP Jay Heaps has kept opponents on their toes the last three games with changes in goal … Matt Reis returned between the pipes on Wednesday at Montreal after a two-game absence, while Bobby Shuttleworth sat after starting back-to-back contests against New York on July 8 and Toronto on July 14. BACKLINE CHANGES CONTINUE The Revs had a stable back line for more than two months – making only one change in one game, and that because of injury – until the team saw a different back-line in each of the last two games … the Revs’ normal back line of Chris Tierney at left back, A.J. Soares and Stephen McCarthy at center back and Kevin Alston at right back, has had to be adjusted the last two games because of injury … while McCarthy started last Saturday’s game against Toronto, he was forced out early – in the fourth minute – with concussive-like symptoms and Shalrie Joseph came in to play center back the rest of the game … on Wednesday, with Shalrie Joseph experiencing back stiffness and unable to play, Darrius Barnes made his first start of the season next to Soares. STRIKING BACK AFTER ATTACKING SHUTOUT The Revolution has been shut out six times this season, but the last five times the team has been held scoreless, the squad has come back to score at least one goal in its next game … after back-to-back shutouts to open the year, the Revs have responded with at least one goal in their next game following a clean sheet … most recently, following a 1-0 loss to Toronto at home last Saturday, the Revs responded with a goal at Montreal on Wednesday. HO-LEE BOMBER Three of Lee Nguyen’s four goals this season have been long-range strikes, two – so far – of which have been nominated for MLS AT&T Goal of the Week … on May 12 against Vancouver, his curling shot from distance off a throw-in was a stunner, while he matched that feat on July 8 against New York with another swerving long-range effort … on Wednesday, he was at it again, with his shot from outside the box striking the crossbar and bouncing in off Montreal keeper Donovan Ricketts. NGUYEN-ING WAYS Lee Nguyen’s goal on Wednesday was his second in the last three games … he also scored a long-range goal against New York on July 8 … Nguyen, who has appeared in all 19 games this season, starting 17 at left midfield, is second on the team in goal scoring with four goals, while adding two assists … Nguyen has been a stand-out player recently, and has been voted Sovereign Bank Man of the Match by the Revolution’s fans in each of the last three games. THE NEW GUY’S BACK Ryan Guy, who started four straight games from March 24 to April 14 and then back-to-back games on May 19 and May 26, returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday with a nod at right midfield … Wednesday’s start was also his first appearance since May 26 … Guy missed two games – June 2 and June 16 – with calf stiffness, but has been available the last two matches after re-gaining match fitness in reserve games … the team’s new “Mr. Versatile,” Guy has played right midfield, left midfield, central midfield, forward and right back at various times this season. HE’S BACK … Sainey Nyassi made his 2012 debut on Wednesday at Montreal … he missed the first 15 games of the year with a severe right hamstring strain that he suffered on Feb. 10 in a preseason scrimmage against Boston College at Gillette Stadium … he was activated off the Disabled List on June 27 and among the game day 18 for the first time on June 30 against Seattle … ironically, Nyassi was not among the original travel party to Montreal, but was brought up on game day after Shalrie Joseph awoke with back stiffness that morning. … AND SEEING DOUBLE While Sainey Nyassi made his 2012 debut on Wednesday, it was an opportune time to see the field for the first time … his identical twin brother, Sanna, is a forward for the Montreal


NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION AT SPORTING KANSAS CITY Impact and was among the starters that night … when Sainey Nyassi checked into the game in the 79th minute, it marked just the second time in the twins’ careers that the two brothers played on the field at the same time against one another … the first time it happened was July 23, 2011, when the Revs played at Colorado and Sanna was a Rapid … the brothers’ teams played five games from 2009 to 2011 before the twins finally saw the field at the same time.

LOCK DOWN MONSTERS The first and second halves of games this season have been polar opposites for the Revolution defense … the Revs are tied with LA for the most first-half goals conceded (17) … however, in the second half, no team has allowed fewer goals (8) … the Revs have allowed 0.89 goals per first half average, but a MLS-best 0.42 goals allowed per second half mark.

JERRY’S LONDON CALLING After signing with the Revs on July 5, Jerry Bengtson has departed to join the Honduras Olympic Team, leaving on Monday, July 16 … said Heaps postgame last Saturday following the loss to Toronto, “Fortunately for him, he’s leaving to go the Olympics; Unfortunately for us, we lose him for a couple of weeks” … Bengtson made two substitute appearances – scoring a goal in his first-ever MLS game on July 8 – after arriving in Foxborough … Honduras had a friendly against Egypt in Amiens, France, on earlier this week before opening Olympic play … Honduras is in a group with Morocco (July 26), Spain (July 29) and Japan (Aug. 1).

GOALS MAKE A DIFFERENCE The Revolution enters the weekend with a neutral goal differential, scoring 25 goals and allowing 25 goals through 19 games … however, that stat alone doesn’t tell the whole story … one year ago, through 19 games, the Revs had a -11 goal differential, scoring 16 goals while allowing 27 through the same number of games.

NO ALL-STAR REPRESENTATION For the first time in club history, the Revolution will not be represented at next Wednesday’s MLS All-Star Game … following the announcement of the game day 18 on Sunday, no Revs players will be present in Philadelphia next week for the AT&T All-Star Game against Champions League victor, Chelsea FC … also of note, Shalrie Joseph saw his eight-year run as an MLS All-Star come to an end … he had earned that recognition every year since 2004. CAPTAIN CLYDE Jay Heaps has continually praised the leadership of Clyde Simms and the veteran has now been publicly honored for his traits … Simms has served as the team’s captain in each of the team’s last three games in place of Shalrie Joseph, who has missed all or parts of those games... in the July 8 match against New York, Simms served as team captain for the first time as a member of the Revolution … it marked the first time since May 15, 2010 (Cory Gibbs), that a Revolution player other than Shalrie Joseph or Matt Reis wore the captain’s armband. SUBS MAKING A DIFFERENCE The Revs have seen a player come off the bench to score a goal in four of their last seven games dating back to June 2 against Chicago ... in those four games, the Revs’ subs have racked up a total of four goals and four assists ... in the last five games, Kelyn Rowe (June 2 against Chicago), Blake Brettschneider (June 23 at Toronto), Diego Fagundez (June 30 against Seattle) and Jerry Bengtson (July 8 against New York) have come off the bench to score for the Revs. SOARES AND TIERNEY AMONG DWINDLING IRON MEN Of the 25 Revs players who’ve appeared in a game this season, only two players have played at least 90 percent of the minutes ... A.J. Soares is the only player who has started all 19 matches, while Chris Tierney has made 18 starts, sitting out the season opener while serving a one-game suspension ... after Tierney, the Revs player who’s play the greatest percentage of minutes is Matt Reis (1,530 of 1,710 minutes/89.4 percent).

CORNER KICK NUMBERS VEXING In the last two games, the Revolution have taken 22 corner kicks and, yet, came away without a goal from any of those opportunities ... the Revs attempted a season-high 13 corner kicks last Saturday against Toronto, a figure two shy of the club’s single-game record (15) … most recently on Wednesday, the team attempted nine corner kicks at Montreal, a number that also out-paced the team’s previous game high headed into the Toronto match (June 2 vs. Chicago, 7) … with 22 corners in the last two games, the Revs have moved up from 19th in the league’s corner kick standings to 13th place entering Saturday’s game, with 85 corner kicks … this season, a combination of Chris Tierney (40 corner kicks), Benny Feilhaber (24) and Kelyn Rowe (13) have taken the majority of the team’s corner kicks. GETTING KNOCKED DOWN AND AROUND The Revs suffered just eight fouls on Wednesday at Montreal, but the total still boosted the team’s total fouls suffered on the season to 277 in 19 games - fourth in MLS … Vancouver leads MLS in fouls suffered with 307 in 21 games .... however, the Revs’ 14.58 fouls suffered per game leads MLS … Wednesday’s match snapped a 10-game streak that saw the Revs suffer at least 14 fouls in each game, dating back to May 5 at Real Salt Lake. REVS BEHAVING WELL While the Revolution have become adept at drawing fouls this season, the team has become just as conscientious about not doling out fouls … the Revs have committed an MLS-low 197 fouls this season (10.37 per game) and have only been cautioned 19 times, also an MLS low … the Revs have played six caution-free games this season and rank second in MLS, two behind Houston (8) … additionally, the team has committed fewer than 10 fouls in a game seven times this season and rank third MLS, two behind league-leader Chicago (9).

LEFT SIDE IS LOCKED DOWN While several players have played multiple positions so far this season, two positions left midfield and left back - have been locked down by Lee Nguyen and Chris Tierney, respectively ... since the second game of the season and in all but one contest since then (May 5 against Colorado when Nguyen was rested and subbed in later), those two players have played in line down the left side ... neither player was among the starters in the season opener at San Jose on March 10 (Tierney serving a suspension from the 2011 season finale and Nguyen coming on as a sub at withdrawn forward) ... in total, Nguyen and Tierney have played 17 games together, including the last 11 straight. PLAYING OFF OF EACH OTHER Chris Tierney has seen a lot of Lee Nguyen in front of him this season as the duo has started 17 games with each other, and has started to let the world know what he thinks of Nguyen ... following the June 2 match against Colorado, Tierney tweeted the following of his left-side partner: “played with a lot of wingers over my time in NE but I must say @LeeNguyen24 can do things that none of the others can. lets keep rollin kid” - @christierney8 ... following the July 8 match against New York - in which Tierney assisted Nguyen for the game-winner - he said the following in his postgame comments, “I love playing with Lee ... He’s as technical as you get in this league. He’s been awesome for us all year and I think we have a good understanding of when one goes, one covers.” A LOOK AT TIERNEY’S ASSISTS With his 15th career assist on July 8 against New York, Chris Tierney became just the 11th Revolution player to record 15 assists for the club ... when looking at the club’s 15-assist men in club history, Tierney’s 0.18 assists per 90 minutes played (15 assists in 7,423 minutes) ranks seventh on the list, making him one of the club’s more productive assist men in team history. WHAT WILL SENE DO IN THE SECOND HALF OF 2012? With eight goals so far this season in the first half of the season, Saer Sene has already matched the team’s single-season scoring highs from the last four years … in 2008 (Steve Ralston, Taylor Twellman), 2009 (Kheli Dube, Shalrie Joseph) and 2011 (Shalrie Joseph), the team’s leading scorer for the season also scored eight goals ... Sene had already passed the 2010 season-high (Marko Perovic, 6) … with the second half of the season now underway, what will Sene do the rest of the season? SHUTTLEWORTH STRONG IN SECOND START Bobby Shuttleworth made his second consecutive start last Saturday against Toronto, recording three saves in the loss … in his two starts this season, Shuttleworth conceded just one goal in 180 minutes of play …his 0.50 goals against average in two starts matches his best previous two-game span … in 2010, Shuttleworth earned consecutive victories on Oct. 10 (2-1, at Houston) and Oct. 16 (1-0, vs. Kansas City). BOBBY MOVES UP IN THE CHARTS With his start last Saturday against Toronto, Bobby Shuttleworth moved up on the club list for all-time games played and appearances in goal ... Shuttleworth’s 14 starts and 15 appearances are now tied for eighth with Jim St. Andre who played one season with the Revs in 1996 ... at 1,311 career minutes in net, Shuttleworth is now just 36 minutes away from passing St. Andre for eighth on the club’s goalkeeper minutes list. JAY HEAPS FACTS & FIGURES Jay Heaps, 35, is the sixth head coach in club history, and is also the second-youngest active coach in MLS (behind D.C. United’s Ben Olsen) … Heaps had a nine-year playing career in MLS, first with the Miami Fusion beginning in 1999 - when he was drafted second overall in the MLS College Draft before earning MLS Rookie of the Year honors that season - through June 2001 ... he was traded to his hometown club, New England, in June 2001 where he concluded his career before retiring following the 2009 season … Heaps is second all-time in minutes (21,619) appearances (243) and starts (238).
