That wasn’t good.

MLS: Los Angeles Galaxy at New England Revolution Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Revolution allowed two stoppage time goals on Saturday night, ultimately succumbing to the LA Galaxy 3-2.

Cristian Penilla was given his marching orders in the 23rd minute after he kicked out at Romain Alessandrini. Penilla was given the red for violent conduct because of his reaction to being run over by Alessandrini.

Despite being down a man, Diego Fagundez scored in the 28th minute. Sharp movement put Fagundez in on goal, which resulted in the Homegrown grabbing his sixth of the season.

Chris Pontius brought the game back to level terms when he scored in the 38th minute. Ashley Cole and Jorgen Skjelvik earned assists on the strike.

It didn’t take long for the Revs to regain their lead, however. Luis Caicedo got his first MLS career goal by heading home a cross by Andrew Farrell. The goal, which occurred just before halftime, sent the Revs into the locker room on positive note.

These positive feelings continued until stoppage time when the Revs allowed two goals to hand the Galaxy three points. Dave Romney scored first before Pontius got his second of the night just one minute later. Alessandrini was the maestro behind both tallies.

The Revolution will now head on the road, as they face Minnesota United FC on Wednesday night.
