The Revolution earned a great result against a quality opponent on Saturday night in their 2-2 draw against Columbus Crew SC. Columbus was coming off of three-straight losses, two of which were against Eastern Conference opponents (D.C. United and Chicago). They were hungry for three points at their home stadium this week and it was impressive the Revolution stymied Columbus' effort and headed back to New England with a point.

Brad Friedel made a change to the starting 11 for the first time in three games. The change placed Scott Caldwell on the bench and brought Juan Agudelo on the field to start the match. This was his second start of the season since he started as the lone forward against Philadelphia in the season opener. Luis Caicedo played in the midfield with Wilfried Zahibo and Diego Fagundez, leaving Agudelo on the wing and Bunbury in the lone forward role.
