Philadelphia outlasts Revolution, weather in U.S. Open Cup

CHESTER, Pa. – The New England Revolution was eliminated from the U.S. Open Cup in the quarterfinal round after the Philadelphia Union knocked the team out with a 2-0 win at PPL Park on Tuesday night.

In a match that featured a 64-minute weather delay, the Union used goals on either side of the half to post the win and the send the Revs out of the 101-year old tournament in the quarterfinals for the second time in as many seasons.

Conor Casey put the Union on the board in the ninth minute, giving the home team the early lead. Sheanon Williams played a restart down the channel to Casey, who broke in on Brad Knighton. Knighton got a piece of the ball as Casey rounded him, but it wasn’t enough and Casey converted the hard-angled shot from the left side.

Steve Neumann tried to make things happen for the Revs just before the half with a pair of passes that led to chances. In the 38th minute, Neumann found Saer Sene in front of the goal and he hit the near post with his first-time shot. In the 40th minute, Neumann fed Teal Bunbury along the edge of the penalty area. Bunbury took a touch to create space and let a looping shot go toward Zac MacMath’s goal, but it was just high.

At 8:26 p.m., referee Fotis Bazakos temporarily suspended the game because of severe weather moving quickly into the area. Sixty-four minutes later, the teams resumed play at 9:30 p.m. in the 62nd minute.

Revolution forward Charlie Davies of Manchester, N.H., did not play in the match.

The Revolution is now 15-12-4 all-time in U.S. Open Cup play. This was the seventh time in club history the team advanced to the quarterfinal round, and the second season in a row.
