Revs place Twellman on season-ending injury list

The New England Revolution have placed forward Taylor Twellman on the team's season-ending injury list with continued health issues stemming from an Aug. 30, 2008, in-game collision with former LA Galaxy goalkeeper Steve Cronin.

The decision to move Twellman to the season-ending list was made after he suffered a setback in his rehabilitation in mid-May. He last participated in a Revolution training session on Tuesday, May 18.

"We're extremely disappointed for Taylor that this setback has ended his season," said the Revs' vice-president of player personnel, Michael Burns. "He was working hard to return to the field in 2010."

"My goal from the start of this season was to be back on the field this year," Twellman said. "I'm very disappointed that this setback has derailed that goal."

Ola Kamara scores twice as Crew beat Revs, 2-0

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ola Kamara scored his 14th and 15th goals of the season and the Columbus Crew beat the New England Revolution 2-0 on Sunday night to keep their playoff hopes alive. 

Columbus (7-11-11), which played in the 2015 MLS Cup, is ninth in the Eastern Conference, but only five points behind D.C. United for the final playoff spot. New England (9-13-9) is seventh, one point back. 

In the 42nd minute, Kamara slid a shot through the legs of defender Darrius Barnes and it got past a diving Brad Knighton. Kamara added a penalty-kick goal in the 84th after he was nudged from behind by London Woodberry. 

Kamara has scored five times in the last three games and leads all MLS newcomers for goals scored this season. He trails New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips by five goals for the MLS Golden Boot. 

Revolution forward Kei Kamara made his return to Mapfre Stadium after being traded from the Crew in May.

MONTREAL - Kai Kamara scored in the first minute and Kelyn Rowe added two goals to help the New England Revolution beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Saturday night.

The Revolution (9-12-9), who lost to Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup final this week, posted a third straight win in Major League Soccer play with only their second road victory of the season. New England moved two points behind fifth-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Didier Drogba scored on a penalty for Montreal (9-9-4), which has only one win in seven games. Perhaps more alarmingly, the Impact are 0-3-1 and have conceded 11 goals in their last four home games.
