The win was the Revolution’s (4-3-1, 13 pts.) first-ever on the road at Chivas USA (1-4-2, 5 pts.), as the club had previously been 0-2-1 on three trips to face the Goats on the west coast.

New England began the match in an unconventional 3-6-1 formation, using Steve Ralston and Mauricio Castro as attacking midfielders behind the lone forward, Kenny Mansally


The Revs continue their up and down season. Hopefully they can soon gain some positive momentum.
