It wasn’t the type of ending the New England Revolution worked for in Dallas, or deserved, after they took a 2-0 lead into the 80th minute.
But a penalty from David Ferreira in the 80th minute and a last gasp stoppage time goal from Jeff Cunningham sealed a 2-2 draw for FC Dallas to keep their 16 game unbeaten steak alive.
The Revolution (7-14-4, 25 points) looked poised to end its dreadful road trip with a much needed three points in Dallas (10-2-13, 43 pts.) as the team fights for a playoff spot. Heading into Pizza Hut Park, the Revs had been shutout on the road, 5-0, and made a habit of allowing early goals.
But for once it was the Revolution who scored first. Shalrie Joseph scored his first goal of the season in the fifth minute and things looked to be going the Revs way for once.
“Lucky for me it [the goal] came early in the game which settled the team a little bit and allows us to play,” said Joseph at practice on Friday.
