The New Revolution and Sporting Kansas City met in what was both teams' first preseason action on Friday morning, and played to a scoreless draw in Casa Grande, Arizona.
The Revs opened their preseason camp last week and used the game as a chance to see their new players in action. The game format consisted of three 30-minute periods, allowing both teams an opportunity to focus on conditioning and tactics.
New England opened each period with three distinctly difference lineups, and made an effort to see as many of their players in as many situations as possible.
Midfielder Kelyn Rowe had the games first chance within the first 10 minutes of action, forcing Sporting KC keeper Jimmy Nielsen into a low save to his left. New England's Diego Fagundez had a chance in the 55th minute, breaking in on back-up goalkeeper Erik Kronberg.
The Revs will play their next preseason friendly on Tuesday, Jan. 29, when they face Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Grande Sports World.
