9-man Metro done in by Revs and refs, 3:2
May 29, 2010

Well... this is not good. Metro dropped its fourth straight league match, losing to New England 3:2 after two second-half red cards reduced New York to nine men. First Carlos Mendes and then Roy Miller were given marching orders, as New England won it on an 80th minute goal.

"Clever" (not so Clever anymore?) Hans Backe gave Mendes a run-in on the right flank; Joel Lindpere returned from injury to reclaim his spot in central midfield.

The Revs struck first in the eighth minute, when Marko Petrovic put one past Bouna Coundoul. The Metro keeper could have done better on the goal, but... well, we're just repeating ourselves.

Metro tied it in the 20th minute, after Seth Stammler's looping shot (cross?) from an acute angle somehow trickled into the upper right corner of the net. But the tie stood for only four minutes, as Tim Ream headed in a cross into his own goal, a sad example of a once-promising season now turning in the wrong direction.

Four minutes into the second half, Metro tied it, when a perfect Danleigh Borman cross from the left side found Juan Pablo Angel's head. But nine minutes later, the game turned. Mendes was given his marching orders after a second yellow card for a tackle on Petrovic. And then, in the 75th, Roy Miller got a straight red after supposedly hitting a Rev player with his forearm. Supposedly.

Supposedly or not, that was all the Revs needed, as five minutes after the second red, Zach Schilawski headed in the gamewinner.

Well... this is not good.

Lineup: Coundoul, Borman, Ream, Petke, Mendes, Miller, Stammler, Lindpere, Ubiparipovic, Richards, Angel. Subs: Hall, Sassano, Tchani.
