MLS Game Summary - San Jose at New England|
(Saturday, May 15, 2010)
From The Sports Network
Final Score: San Jose 0, New England 0
Foxborough, MA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Earthquakes and New England
Revolution battled to a 0-0 draw in Major League Soccer action at Gillette
Stadium on Saturday night.
The draw is the third straight clean sheet for San Jose goalkeeper Joe Cannon,
who made his best save just before the first-half break, knocking a Sainey
Nyassi volley out-of-bounds.
"I thought it was an even game. We had some chances to score, but overall it
was a fair result," San Jose coach Frank Yallop said. "A point on the road is
always good. We haven't conceded a goal for three straight games so we can
take some positives out of the game."
The Revolution (2-5-2) got some solid goaltending from Preston Burpo in the
second half, denying Ryan Johnson's header and a Bobby Burling breakaway for
his best efforts.
"I saw the play developing. I took it on the chest and I looked around and I
was surprised by how open I was. I started licking my chops and the ball
started to get really big. I just pounded it. I probably should have done a
better job placing it or laying it off to Wondo [Chris Wondolowski]," Burling
said of his missed chance.
New England's best chance of the second half came just after the hour mark
when a Joseph Niouky blast went off the woodwork.
San Jose (4-2-1) will aim for the full points at Seattle next Saturday, while
the Revs hope to end their current six-game winless run at Toronto FC earlier
the same day in their next MLS fixture.
