Foxborough, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Los Angeles Galaxy and the New England Revolution battled to a 2-2 tie on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium.
In a re-match of last years championship match up, Los Angeles comes into the match with a bit of momentum having won back-to-back games following a five- match winless streak. Despite the winless streak New England brings into the game, the Revs are unbeaten this season at home.
In the fifth minute Juan Agudelo sent a pass to Scott Caldwell who made a cross to an open Teal Bunbury who buried it in the back of the net for an early Revolution 1-0 lead.
The Galaxy would respond in the 18th minute. Baggio Husidic whiffed on a shot and the ball found its way to and open Ignacio Maganto. Maganto fired a shot from outside of the box into the top right corner to tie the score 1-1.
Nine minutes later LA took their first lead of the night when Gyasi Zardes' shot from the center of the box found the bottom right corner to give the Galaxy a 2-1 lead.
The Revs responded when Diego Fagundez puts free kick over the wall from just outside of the box into the upper left corner to tie the game at 2-2 in the 37th minute.
As the rain continued to fall both teams settled down and played a very conservative half. The Revs turned up the pressure late in the game and the best chance came in the 87th minute when Andrew Farrell free kick from just outside the box just missed the left post.
