Following a 4-0 blowout of visiting Real Salt Lake, three Revolution players earned league-wide recognition: Chris Tierney and Charlie Davies for Team of the Week and Juan Agudelo for Team of the Week reserves.
Tierney opened the scoring account with a 39th minute tally, a curling right-footed shot that tucked its way into the side netting. The left back nearly found the back of the net a second time, forcing RSL goalkeeper Jeff Attinella into a sprawling save. Once again, the opportunity arrived off Tierney's right foot.
Although Davies excelled in hold-up play from the the beginning of his shift until the end, he left his mark in the 50th minute, scoring an athletic header off an assist from Scott Caldwell. Davies has now scored in two consecutive matches.
Just before the break, Agudelo scored a goal of his own, finishing a deep run onto the far post. Following a diagonal shot from Davies, Attinella spilled a rebound in Agudelo's direction. He finished with ease.
Scott Caldwell, who collected a goal and an assist, did not receive recognition. The Revolution midfielder scored the club's fourth goal, a finesse finish in the 84th minute.
