Four quick thoughts about the Tuesday in football:
Before Tuesday? The Revs last extra-time tilt was in 2016: they won that, too
During the Revs’ run to the US Open Cup Final in that halcyon year, New England hosted Philadelphia in the quarterfinal round on July 20 at Harvard University’s Jordan Field in Allston. That one went into extra time after a couple of things: the Revs had jumped ahead, 1-0, thanks to Je’Vaughn Watson’s 44th-minute tally; that came about on a Diego Fagundez free kick, where he caught the Union wall napping, he slipped it to the left, and Watson scored.
Then, as the normal 90 was about to end, the Union forced extra time thanks to Fabian Herbers and a little ball watching as the normal 90 came to an end. In the extra time in front of the makeshift Fort — which was really rocking that night — the Revs threw the washer, dryer, and kitchen sink at Andre Blake, who stopped everything… until penalties.
