Revolution Player Ratings: Orlando City Spoils Kamara's Standout Performance

After a strong first half, the Revs plummeted to a 3-1 loss to Orlando City. Did anyone impress other than Kamara, the Revs' lone goalscorer?

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

An early goal from Kei Kamara gave the Revolution a halftime lead, but three second-half goals by Orlando City stole his headline. Did anyone else stand out for the Revs?

1 Player was a complete liability and made no positive contributions

5 Player minimized mistakes during a routine outing

10 → Player turned in a historic performance

Starters

Bobby Shuttleworth - 4.5

Though Bobby hardly carries the blame for Orlando City's first two tallies, he must have had nightmares about Kevin Molino's 83rd-minute goal, which somehow snuck under his mitts. He did make a strong reaction save on Break Shea, however, to keep the Revs alive in the 76th minute.

Andrew Farrell - 3.5

It was a tale of two halves for the lone Revolution All-Star. In the first half, he denied crosses, picked good spots and won several 1v1 battles. But everything fell apart in the second, when he struggled in the air, continually floated into no-man's land and often failed to track his mark. He ultimately played a role in all three Orlando City goals.

London Woodberry - 5.5

Woodberry led the Revs in tackles (3) and blocked shots (3) during a clean defensive shift. Most importantly, he also minimized mistakes, as he's done on numerous occasions this season.

Jose Goncalves - 6

Goncalves held his own against Orlando City, collecting a game-high five interceptions while connecting on 35 of his 36 passes (97 percent). He even created a goal-scoring chance with a long ball out of the back.

Chris Tierney - 4.5

Tierney looked dangerous moving up the left flank, but struggled to connect with his signature left-footed service (none of his 4 crosses found a Revolution player). He was ultimately pulled for Gershon Koffie in the 61st minute.

Scott Caldwell - 5.5

Scotty turned in a routine shift on Sunday. He connected on 91 percent of his passes, stalled several attacking chances and, in vintage fashion, picked up a professional yellow card.

Je-Vaughn Watson - 5.5

The good: Watson collected game-high 5 interceptions while offering a physical presence in the middle of the park. The bad: after switching to left back in the 61st minute, he allowed Brek Shea beat him to the endline on a go-ahead assist.

Teal Bunbury - 5

Bunbury's greatest contributions came on the defensive end, where he recovered to collect 4 clearances. Offensively, he lacked consistent involvement.

Lee Nguyen - 5.5

Nguyen didn't put forth a bad shift; he created a goal-scoring chance and found the space to hit a pair of shots. But he undeniably lacked his usual involvement in the attacking third and, like many of his teammates, ultimately tailed off in the second half.

Kelyn Rowe - 6.5

Arguably the sharpest Revolution midfielder in the Starting XI, Rowe turned in a strong two-way performance. He released Kamara on the wing to pick up a first-half assist, made a strong run into the box (before muffing a close-range strike) and offered a strong defensive presence (2 tackles, 3 interceptions).

Kei Kamara - 8

Kamara earned his paycheck on Sunday. He scored the Revs lone goal on a perfectly-executed fast break and nearly picked up an assist with strong hold-up play (he created a game-high 3 goal-scoring chances). Defensively, he stood strong in the air and executed several timely interventions.

Subs

Gershon Koffie - 5.5

He's not fully fit, though Koffie still flashed the physicality that led to his first-half success. He'll be an asset to this club once he returns to his early-season form and fitness.

Diego Fagundez - 5.5

In a 22-minute shift, Diego worked hard in possession and created a goal-scoring chance. He deserves another crack at the Starting XI.

Charlie Davies - 6.5

Making his first appearance since April 27, Davies came off the bench with a full head of steam. He made Joe Bendik and the Orlando City back line work hard in the waning moments, collecting a game-high 3 shots on goal in just 16 minutes. His performance bodes well for a strong 2016 return.
