Bobby Shuttleworth proved the hero as his late penalty save earned the New England Revolution a 1-1 tie to extend the Chicago Fire’s run without a win to seven games.
In front of 15,743 at Toyota Park, the Revs No. 1 goalkeeper denied substitute Juan Luis Anangono from the spot in the 90th minute and Jeff Larentowicz’s follow up to prevent the Fire from claiming their first victory of the season. Kevin Alston had handled a goal-bound shot from Fire substitute Victor Pineda to give Chicago the golden opportunity for the three points in a match that saw both teams finish with 10 men.
The Fire retained the same starting line-up that tied 1-1 at Montreal Impact last week while the Revs made one change from their 2-0 win over the Houston Dynamo. Darrius Barnes came in at right back with Andrew Farrell switching to the center in the absence of the injured Jose Goncalves.
