A 90th minute free kick dooms the Revs.

The New England Revolution were forced to settle for a draw after Orlando City SC scored in stoppage time.

It was a dream start for the Revs, as Juan Agudelo got his second of the campaign in the 7th minute. Agudelo was able to flick on Brandon Bye’s long throw-in to beat Earl Edwards Jr. at the near post.

The Revs grabbed a second in the 18th minute when Luis Caicedo forced a turnover. The midfielder found Cristian Penilla, who made easy work of the rest.

Orlando threatened in the 27th minute via Dom Dwyer. The striker went one-on-one with Matt Turner with the Revs goalkeeper getting the best of the situation.

Scott Caldwell was on the attack in the 30th minute when he was sent in by Penilla. The Homegrown had a shot destined for goal, if not for a last-minute clearance.

Orlando got one back just before the break when Dwyer finished a Tony Rocha cross. It was Dwyer’s 10th goal of the season.

Turner kept the game in the Revs’ favor when he stopped Dwyer’s bid in the 57th minute. Orlando created the opportunity on a fast break while the away team pushed numbers up the field.

Orlando tied the game up in the 71st minute. A free kick by Yoshimar Yotun found a wide open Amro Tarek. His take hit the post before Turner pushed the ball into the back of the net.

Needing a goal, Brad Friedel inserted Teal Bunbury for Scott Caldwell. Bunbury didn’t take long to make an impact, as he scored in the 75th minute after deceiving a defender with a step over.

The Revs couldn’t see the game out, as Scott Sutter scored in stoppage time. Yotun collected his second assist of the night when his free kick was converted by Sutter.

Yotun was shown a red card in the dying moments of the game, but it was little consolation for the Revs, who left the Sunshine State with a point.
