New England got a standout performance from goalkeeper Matt Reis to earn a road win and snap a nine-game winless streak.
New England goalkeeper Matt Reis was really the hero on the night, keeping United at bay despite being under constant pressure. Reis caught a break just before the interval as Charlie Davies blew a penalty over the top to keep the score level at halftime.
The second half offered much of the same, with United largely in control of the match but unable to slip one past the veteran keeper, and with just over 15 minutes remaining New England got the break it needed. Revolution midfielder Stephen McCarthy broke free of Ethan White on a corner kick and headed off the back post and into the net, giving the Revs a 1-0 lead.
United would test Reis on a few more occasions before the night was over, but he was up to the task and kept his clean sheet to preserve the points.
