Last night was a good way to kick off our only two-game road trip of the season.
Of course, the Revs claimed three points with a 1-0 win over D.C. United at RFK Stadium – amidst sweltering heat, I might add – riding Stephen McCarthy’s 73rd-minute goal and a clutch performance from goalkeeper Matt Reis to victory. The win was the Revolution’s first on the road this season and snapped a nine-game winless run dating back to mid-May. So we can finally stop talking about it.
Most importantly, the win will hopefully provide a springboard into the second half of our current road trip, which continues in Commerce City, Colo., on Saturday night when the Revs visit the defending MLS Cup champion Colorado Rapids.
The team boarded an early afternoon flight from D.C. to Denver today and arrived in the Mile High City at approximately 3 p.m. local time. After being suspended for Wednesday night’s game at D.C., Benny Feilhaber will meet up with the team in Denver. Unfortunately, Ryan Cochrane didn’t join his teammates on the journey to Colorado, instead heading back to Boston for treatment on the left foot injury which forced him off in the 22nd minute last night at RFK Stadium.
A pool workout is scheduled upon arrival at the team hotel, while a team meal will follow before everyone retreats to their rooms to relax for the night. The team will train on Friday afternoon here in Colorado and we’ll have coverage from that training session here on revolutionsoccer.net.
In the meantime, stay cool. We hear it’s pretty hot back in the Northeast …
