Farrell, Caldwell, Fagundez Help Revolution Dominate MLS Team of the Week

Three Revolution players earned a Team of the Week shout--and another landed on the bench.

Following Saturday's 2-0 victory over the Chicago Fire, a handful of Revolution players earned league-wide recognition: Andrew Farrell, Scott Caldwell and Diego Fagundez for MLS Team of the Week, and Bobby Shuttleworth for Team of the Week reserves.

While roaming the defensive third, Farrell covered a tremendous amount of ground, constantly frustrating forward Kennedy Igboananike and rest of Frank Yallop's attack. The converted right back has turned in an impressive season thus far, battling back from a disappointing March debut. Farrell contributed two tackles and six clearances during his club's fifth shutout of the season.

Caldwell turned in a classic Scott Caldwell shift, standing strong defensively while stringing together a series of intelligent passes. Throughout the course of the match, the homegrown player bottled up Fire forward Harry Shipp, who struggled to find his form. Caldwell has shown tremendous growth in 2015, serving as the club's leader in the middle of the park.

Following an energetic first half, Fagundez beat Chicago 'keeper Jon Busch with a sensational volley, a goal that ultimately held up as the game-winner. The 20-year-old midfielder has now scored in his past two starts.

In the first half, Shuttleworth made a pair of key saves, working to keep the match level heading into the break. A point-blank stop on Jason Johnson helped preserve the clean sheet in the waning moments.

The Revolution take the field again on Wednesday, when they'll host USL-side Charlotte Independence as part of the 2015 U.S. Open Cup. Match kicks off at 7:30 PM ET and will stream live on YouTube.
