Revs head to international break unbeaten in five after 1-1 draw with Union

FOXBORO — The New England Revolution (4-5-4, 16 points) took on the Philadelphia Union (6-1-7, 25 points) for a 1-1 draw at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night. Forward Gustavo Bou, making his first MLS start since March 5, converted a second-half penalty for his first goal of the season. Moments later, Philadelphia’s Mikael Uhre capitalized on a New England error to level the game in the 76th minute.

New England recorded a season-high 22 shots, while Bou led all players with six shots and three on target. The Argentine striker threatened to score on numerous occasions before finally converting from the penalty spot in the 75th minute, after Dylan Borrero’s cross hit the Union defender’s arm. For his MLS career, including the playoffs, Bou now has 33 goals and 50 goals and assists combined, the third two in MLS since joining the league.

Goaltender Matt Turner, now set to join the United States Men’s National Team for international duty, made a save on two faced shots in the game. Turner maintained his unbeaten streak in MLS this season with a 2-0-3 record. Brazilian midfielder Dylan Borerro made his home debut in the 62nd minute and registered three shots in 27 minutes played.

The Revolution is absent next weekend for the international break and will resume its activities on Sunday June 12
