Revolution vs. Union 70' Update: Still Scoreless After Soares Forced Off Through Injury

The New England Revolution have passed 70 minutes against the Philadelphia Union and still neither team has found the breakthrough. The match has bogged down considerably compared to the glut of chances on both sides in the first half.

The half started off without much aplomb until the 61st minute, when both sides made substitutions. A.J. Soares, who appeared to be dealing with a leg injury with which he was unable to continue, was replaced by Fernando Cardenas, while Antoine Hoppenot replaced Amobi Okugo in a clear attacking adjustment from the Union.

Cardenas then had two very good chances for the Revs. First, he fired off a quick shot from distance that was saved by MacMath in the 67th minute. Then, in the 70th minute, he ended up clear on goal by himself after a mistake in the Union defense. However, instead of rounding the keeper or having a shot, Cardenas got cute and tried to fool MacMath with stepovers. Instead, he wasted the chance and played it out to Bengtson, who couldn't get a shot off.
