FOXBORO -- A week after clobbering the defending MLS champs, the New England Revolution played to a scoreless draw against the league's worst team in D.C. United Saturday night at Gillette Stadium.

While no goals were scored, it was certainly a game that the Revolution could have won, as their scoring chances far outweighed what D.C. United gave them.

New England missed the net high on several occasions in the opening minutes of the game, with Lee Nguyen and Saer Sene getting the best looks from the top of the box, but putting their shots just over the crossbar and into the stands.

And then in the opening minutes of the second half, Diego Fagundez missed high on a wide-open look from the top of the box, and a minute later, Chris Tierney buried the right post.

The Revs kept the offensive pressure on for most of the match, but both teams leave Gillette Stadium with one point.
