We're gonna draft from. Worrying Foxborough. Where the revolution have defeated the Chicago Fire that sort of. Fell off a little scores. -- I felt I thought he would be able to join us in a moment down that's under his locker room. Ramirez set you buoyant right now those performs and looking forward defeating a good team here at home. -- finally get a win against the Eastern Conference this is a huge -- -- -- the bye week again like you said fortress Foxboro they wanna make displays a tough place they did. 3 points at home Eastern Conference team the quality -- let's throw it down to Damon -- -- outside the revs locker room. Thanks guys Keller wrote down here and telling you came in as a substitute in that second half -- a coach you tell you when you were coming -- It's -- and get a lot of energy you know take chances up front. Get us a goal and hopefully we'll keep we are let's look at some of the chances you have. Tonight the first chance you had just let the wind gets but you just visited today -- connected on them. I did not see he's he's a big guys have been through his legs -- you know sometimes I play against other available. And then you have the breakaway goal right there that you punched the -- -- just give you the the play by play that you know and he's a great back. And the run and anybody get it to my first that's the second one a little off but there. Obviously you guys. Played so well here in Foxboro Gillette Stadium over the course of the year what is it about playing at home that you guys feed off of this offense to step for the fans in others in our names they tossed it gone and we are -- cal congratulation a great effort tonight. Thanks very much Keller wants gay guys let's go back upstairs. Well in period of the fans this. I was like they already have quite -- affair going on down there with that the players. And our row feeding off that energy and that's all part of fortress -- for a pretty good showing from the fans here -- a miserable night after a beautiful week you're doing. That's when they came out not it grows but they came out strong before like it's always been jump and -- keeping these guys excited. First half a little bit slow in the league they feed off that excitement like talent -- they feed off that -- yeah. Read the reds came out really on the front foot and then it became just joint in the middle part of the first half -- a tough game to call from perspective that it was. Choppy and then thinks. Through the -- reasserted themselves. And it -- I think when the rain stopped beginning in the first of the second half first half like you said it was choppy 23 passes than they lose both teams in the same way. Second half the rain cleared out they had eight that they had the ability to keep more possession like they wanted to do and that that the proved evident. And one of the they're heroes tonight. Even overtime -- a row and fail -- it was Matt -- get a second shot out and I made a couple of -- season he -- with DA right now. Thank you guys smacked it seemed like you guys really kind of lost some steam after that final whistle you -- -- a couple of teammates how important was tonight's night. Tonight's win for him. It's huge you know we. -- if you look at where they are in the standings and where we are these next you know three weeks now or are really vital for us -- if you wanna try and get into the playoffs so. We knew that going into it and you know we we had a very complete game tonight which was you know finally. Perez on the we we all worked -- achieving an answer and striving for. You pitched a shutout tonight had a little bit help for the post -- -- we thought both those were saves but they did go off the -- we'll we'll check out the video coming up here. Did you did you did you know you had the angle on it's. -- This is the -- back Brandon tonight it definitely. Was there. This one right here was. You know that the guys really played well in front of me. A great job. You know the guys that are really really well tonight in front of me in. Like I said it was a comprehensive victory. Tonight that the conditions were terrible obviously special in the first half the rain was coming down the turf was slick with the challenges from your standpoint when the weather is like that. And just mentally got to stay in the game actually I like I kind of like doing that when the turf is is a little damp because it helps the game in and helps the ball rolls so. You know for us it wasn't that bad and you know and set -- new England's -- Golding went back there. But -- I wanna do 22. Dedicate this victory to my son -- is not feeling well today and you know my rights that go out there when it -- and we did. You announced your brave the elements of the -- don't know he's got a Tim's a six so you know he's an omen you know. -- -- -- now you'll be sick after sitting out have a great effort on him that are being at home and I've -- congratulations. That -- guys back upstairs. Thanks to the joys of fatherhood dreaded cheese Fries you were likely to excellent quickness if you think -- -- -- as a character I'm ready in go for those. Those of saves that weren't serious but you know what he he -- he spread a lot of credit around and he was a comprehensive win for for the revolution so let's look at the highlights and I'll always back the beginning in the first half. Or Fernando carton house was. Two. It's -- magic on the ball. Kenny Scott is still in the midfield just this is off here to showery. And up and get that back -- another play just Kansas that's wholly solely wind like from the opposite side. But it you've got a chance here laid it up that many good first -- strike from Kansas soft post. And this is one of those bounces off the post the flick on header there and I believe it was a bloop or. It would just why -- Hit the outside of the post -- hard -- again try to pull the strings -- found somebody who Gurode and he had memories. Almost full stretch there. Denny -- match right there but -- the bad giveaway up top here that we did the other way. Players and it's good chance a little bit off target but still quality chance first time -- afford to -- did not score. Represent us some work to do still is. -- again to make the dive off the. Jersey split the wickets and then off the layoff from us than it did turn out to be one nothing bad to tell. -- -- Drove very that this. -- 69 for a score and -- doubled their advantage in the 73 minute this time it was a rookie row returned the favor to fill out. They needed quality minutes as time -- -- sit there. The reds continue to look to attack rather than sitting in a defensive posture. This is the center back MacArthur converted good -- -- -- and ripping a shot was saved well by Johnson. Reds get the two. Nothing victory. And let's take a look at our Budweiser. Final stats. They times or waiting in the red outshooting Chicago 67 in the -- shots on goal seventh floor we're doing and they had a big advantage. Corner kicks suited to what a horrible game possession more Chicago's there in the second half over the course of the game the reds had so. No other than some choppy moments in a couple of bad giveaways. It was a kind of game intrigues wants to. Definitely yup back and forth game one the second half with the reds came out had a lot more of the ball as far as quality chances vs Chicago ahead a little bit better the chances in the first half but. And a good finish from them to quality strikes in the -- gone the distance at that deported on try to go for number three but just -- keep it safe clean sheet in the back. Is it fair to say that there is very little between the teams. In this league if you look at how close are the -- -- played in the top teams in both conferences like Real Salt Lake in DC you know they lost to -- and they beat some of the defending champs -- the beat Vancouver. Now maybe Chicago being Chicago were ahead of them in the standings. It's just a moment here and there they're so you know that the talent level between teams night and I hit it there there's not much of discrepancy. Player wise yes team -- definitely not I'm in their quality but like you send in the beginning a few. Few chances here and there. Bounces here and there and just complete games that's what makes a difference throughout the year. Or let's hear that coach has to -- down the restaurants we took our chances well. And our back line did an excellent job keep -- amount. He he's been pushing hard may mean I think peace. When he came in the game there was a different -- about him and came in. Almost scored first time in his great run down the back and look as we -- finalists good save on the shot adjustment each day and then down. You know and in the second goal is first second goal of the beautiful from count me smartest play quickly and I'm like hitting him in those situations where he can be. Dynamic attack -- force. This. It John I wanna play the next day and the next and the next day -- is -- although. And and EU of that because there's no governor on so. Known today he's going in there I had no. And I think it is Fernando play a lot of minutes too as well he did elements in Indies in a lot of minutes on on on Tuesday night so. Unfortunately for an us through tonight great great game of any sort around esteem and I thought -- talent I knew that when he went in his and it -- park. It was a good day for -- and I'm in many of them you know obviously Denny. Has played a lot one -- the White -- and we refocused on him being in the middle more attacking in. Yeah he's he's comfortable there in that company get everything right tonight he defended when we needed him defend and when he had his chances to change Gainey did. And who is who is really important he. He went out there and play that way and and credit -- Joseph Sharia edges still dropping a little bit and a lot more defending and we held him back a little bit now Milan -- -- to -- more offensive. Plaudits for the -- matched many fail lover there does not get a weekend off so it's two weeks before their next game Saturday. June 16. Here at Gillette Stadium will be on Comcast sports and for tickets call 1877 get rid of the long live and soccer done that thanks to Jim to Don and -- Federer. In the truck the rest of our excellent wrist -- and those TB proof. And Jeff posited Brett -- sign off. Foxboro we'll talk -- two weeks after the game on the -- draft.
