Sat, 27 Oct 2012|
A.J. Soares netted the game winner in the 88th minute to give the Revolution a win in their final game of the season.
Welcome to our final round draft of 2012. We're coming to you from Montreal the -- we're. Evolution just defeated the Montreal impact -- score. But 10 read film that just cause -- -- to believe this season's come to a close already for the rest but it ended on a high note. Which is a comprehensive victory but that's what you need to do to win on the road against a tough team. Brady is like its -- they came in with a game plan stuck to keep you know 1011 guys behind the ball countered did well. Coming up what the last couple minute of achievable goal defensively played very very strong. -- offense -- -- didn't do much but that's all it takes you defend well and -- ones near and and the guy who scored the only goal -- joins us now from down the field AJ how does that feel -- Doesn't -- have to get the win. I'm happy that I aspects of the game obviously. Workers trapped the ball but yeah overall. -- -- Again for you were talking you can get in that game. Defensively you are fantastic to get the right place right time player and stuff away offensively and I guess that just come in but you're not -- on it and come out with a game. And yeah I mean now you. You know on the gloves in the right spot -- In my head -- -- just kind of -- in Christopher because there and then -- defensively yeah. Darius. You know between various flag and operate on me. They did a great job for me again news I kind of did talk about defending against us sort of classic Italian. Little large to accommodate them make your basketball the final buzz around out there. There is very active very Smart guy obviously got fouled and tonight some good places around. You know when he had opportunities I thought headed into the last and then you know we got the break stay in that. It's tough to defend against that kind of coming. Basically it's. Playing another season on a high -- another great goal thanks for joining -- -- -- thanks -- Just to what extent does this send the reds in the offseason despite missing the playoffs on -- we different -- completely different note -- defeating two pretty strong teams in their conference call one Dolphin and it shows that there is some progress so do you prevent. -- do I mean again they rework some things I think once they realize they weren't in the playoffs you can see it from a coaching staff to the players and just like. Cool just everybody relax calm down. He -- tactics change a little bit they try to do different things but. That's we have to do and unless you you -- you go on the road to come up with a game plan they stuck to -- they worked it perfectly. And they come over the result. You know doing that mid season early year maybe it's a different story. Part joining us now. Is a rich man of the match brought you by sovereign bank of Bobby shuttleworth was another shot -- thirty year career second in a row Bobby how does that feel. Feels great yeah I mean you know next year -- -- to come on the road and get better result so are no better time right now account for us next season. Obviously you didn't goals against averages is barely anything that's huge for keeper. 56 games in a row in a good results this season how do you feel you know personally going into the offseason. That good I mean you know I'm coming off a couple injuries here and you know off the sharpness -- -- 100% fair but you know it's nice to get a nice running games here and you know hopefully I can translate into you know you -- formerly mentioned. Talk about the late stage of the game and obviously Montreal. We're throwing numbers forward all looking for gold Johnson Matt came -- -- difference for them he's an all out assault on your case there. Yeah I mean I think that came and gave them. You know for the win. You know let's cut the ball land and files really tricky with a strong so. You know they had a couple chances at the end but -- able buckle down and -- -- -- -- -- -- rats on the shut out -- test. So we've seen the running game to Bobby shuttleworth now. He's not memories different kind of -- compare contrast. Feet I think Matt -- has that you know the technical still the ball skilled playing at bat he could I could see it you know first legacy that. The -- didn't wanna play it back I think at times when they had to. You know they had due to read fan with some clearances -- extremely comfortable on the ball they -- you -- sweeper -- that you played back use them to go to the other side. Bobby had three. Reaction time it's very strong in the air great reaction to make to save you shot you saw tonight -- -- saves in the second half to keep these guys in the game and keep. Zero been impressive outing for Bobby shuttleworth down on the field now our coach Jay heaps. Coach how much to do these consecutive wins going to the offseason it's just change the feeling about the overall campaign -- You know -- it's important in this is the kind of results you know not to look back too far but. This is the time it the result we need a -- to game didn't go our way in and you know we feel we kind of fought in battle through it -- got the results on the set piece. But really we've got some some some really good games this year we didn't get anything out of it but this is this is a good way to go in the offseason like you said. -- -- we want to -- that would gut it out you know to back to back got shut outs that's important for guys to feel that they can do it especially on the road. Let's start the game plan again walking into it playing more defensively letting them come to UN and jumping on the ball that worked for him probably three quarters of the game. Things got out of whack but then again guys Smart about cleared up the lines like you said it just you know one counter once -- all you need. Play it shows you exactly right now and that was the game plan was to hold a little bit trapped in the a little bit but -- noon when we got the ball to really keep it as well as we did against Chicago and that was the difference I think that was that quarter of the game you talk about where we're supposed to keep it. They don't turn it over seven and a couple too many turnovers. I'm concerned apart defensively though I -- -- got to take your hat off to Darrius Barnes and AJ -- the two of them were we're all over the place today when the -- out of the box you do is one of those guys are beyond. It's Jays are -- you can categorize or define it. What makes the difference in these kind of games it is it sure is a team cohesiveness with your on teams -- used it -- he's. These games out your game it's been so close all season lying in -- the last couple weeks you've been on the right side those results. What it's maturity process you know Bradley we talk about time it's it's an understanding it's maturities keeping the same group Ron means we have a performance like that my gauging Darius had an. And then you can build upon that and say this team middle of the year that you have another hole like that that was really where we turn it around 2002 have talked about it. As a group we weren't where you know we're bottom of the table but we had a group of guys to put on a run of results and -- that run of results became our identity. It became you know. Data cocktail or because -- most -- rusty pierce defeated hearted and making it happen. Kennedy had the class of Taylor Twellman Steve Ralston to win the game but really was -- cohesiveness of guys sticking together and making it through tough moments and then when he did that became their identity. Well today I know you fell short of your goal making the playoffs but you end the season a great note congratulations on your first season has been has been a lot of fun covering your team. Thanks guys are gonna get better from us. Jay -- and nobody cares more than. He came in. With the limited resonate but he's playing -- using his pedigree is a winner and a competitor -- there and we know we as an analytical mind to go with that that passion. And his team's reflect that but. For me anyway fit players you brought in when you look at Phil likes McKellen -- top draft choice to -- win. Fernando Carter notched technical players to go with that in the gritty guys to back threes -- law and there. She wants his teams play soccer too as well as the passion. Obsolete you know we showed it with a solid back for me and you look at the look at the formation he looked at players that can fill those you know fill those positions have got to. Great goal keeping -- two great goalkeepers. 56 really solid defenders that you know they're all young look at him in the very very young so this is another season when they built with the experience. Quality midfielders again Cardinals opinion Sims again -- a known to Ohio and there you get these guys in the center midfield. And you can pick and choose it -- opens came up and you got to Benson bongo and you -- -- Chris Snyder up top you've got these guys that can jump in and play these positions. That big a deal of good days where fassel -- eleven sold thirteen fourteen and you know they had a good early when against LA and of late win on the road it's. In the road -- the analysts say the road really killed him is only your second victory away you know if you can come out with a couple more results a couple more times in the road. That's the difference maker on the -- pointed in the right direction let's take a look at. Highlights we pick it up in the second half -- it was Montreal very much on the attack Jeff. Again -- that James was busy in the back there but the violin playing. Dangerous ball and the red deftly -- a few bullets and Bobby -- can't say enough came up with some huge saves. Guys. Huge. Put his stamp on it. And redirect the ball. Christian and your sister your final -- front you buy Budweiser the revs outshot sixteen to seven. 200 Jones shots on goal in favor of Montreal who had 62%. Of the possession. Only stat that matters. As it JOK. Here's the final score one not your favorite Perez and out. From that the -- of Abraham from the that musket has an interest each week -- reflect what I just said earlier you know the Raiders fell short of making the playoffs are fun. To watch all season long and you know from from a publication that is intelligently critical of the team. At times that's a very positive thought and I I you attend to three. The reds are playing an entertaining style all with a few future. -- absolutely. Do against it but everybody wants to make the playoffs so if you look at the season say okay what the success was a rebuilding year wasn't a bad year you know it. It's a year that you did make the playoffs but. -- -- to know -- -- the thirteen or 2013 I think that's what they look at this team these last two games is their. They're pushing forward and in the offseason they're not to let up they gonna find the right guys to fill some gaps. They're gonna -- you know the young guys to play more and they're gonna -- the leaders become stronger leaders. Sorry Jeff has been fun avenue in the Booth for your first year good stuff look forward to seeing you know Tony thirteen sooner and hit the cartilage all right as we move forward. The final score one nothing the revolution defeat the impact. Lots of fun all season long thanks the guys that truck Sean Jensen and earns a spot up. We'll talk to next season -- draft.
