It looked like it would be yet another ugly result as Kei Kamara streaked down the field and beat Joe Bendik to open the scoring last night at Camping World Stadium. But the boys in purple scored immediately after halftime and added two more to leave the stadium as 3-1 winners, beating New England for the first time.
Kevin Molino stole the show with a pair of goals and an assist on Cyle Larin's equalizer. Kaká played well, as did Brek Shea and others, including an unexpected defensive midfield pairing of Servando Carrasco and Antonio Nocerino. Jason Kreis tweaked the lineup a bit, rewarding players who performed well at training all week and also in the Wednesday night friendly against Stoke City.
Another crowd north of 27,000 turned up at the big campground to cheer on the Lions as they caught the Revs on points with a game in hand, although the Revolution currently own the first tiebreaker (wins). If Kreis can consistently get performances like this from his team, there's no reason the Lions can't make some noise down the stretch.
We hope you enjoy these images from last night's match.
