  DID YOU KNOW?
  • The Fire have a 10-game undefeated streak against the Revolution in league play. New England’s last victory in regular season play came May 6, 2007 at Gillette Stadium.
  • New England lost in the U.S. Open Cup midweek to the USL-Pro Harrisburg City Islanders on a penalty shootout. The Revolution scored three in extra time, but the third-division minnows came back to equalize and Benny Feilhaber's deciding spot kick was saved.
  • Chicago was also sent out of the Open Cup by lower-league opposition. The Michigan Bucks, a team in the amateur PDL, fought back from 2-1 to win 3-2 in extra time.
  • With one more assist, Revs captain Shalrie Joseph will move into second place on New England’s all-time assist list, ahead of Joe-Max Moore. Joseph has three assists already on the year, bringing his career total to 35.
  • Saer Sene extended his goal-scoring streak to three games (with four goals in that span) in New England’s 3-2 loss at D.C. United. Sene had five goals and one assist in May (six games).
