Revs battle to scoreless draw in Vancouver, stretch unbeaten run to nine games

VANCOUVER (NE Revolution) – The New England Revolution (6-5-6; 24 pts.) extended their unbeaten streak to nine games with a 0-0 draw against Vancouver Whitecaps FC (6-8-3; 21 pts.) at BC Place on Sunday night. Revolution goalkeeper Djordje Petrović recorded six saves, a new personal best with New England, in his first clean-sheet performance and the team's third of the season.

Gustavo Bou started at forward and recorded eight shot attempts, tied for the most in a game by a Revolution player this season. Dylan Borrero played an 81-minute shift in his fourth straight start and nearly broke the deadlock with a right-footed shot in the 53rd minute that struck the crossbar. Carles Gil teed up Borrero for another dangerous opportunity moments later, one of Gil's game-high six chances created, but the Colombian's shot was parried by Cody Cropper.

There were chances at both ends as the two teams finished even with 16 shots apiece. Petrović, whose record moves to 2-0-2 in MLS play, was assisted by a resolute defensive performance from a backline anchored by Andrew Farrell and Jon Bell, with DeJuan Jones and A.J. DeLaGarza starting on the outside. Bell and Farrell, starting together in central defense for the third straight game, combined for 11 clearances.

New England's record against the Whitecaps moves to 5-2-4, with a 3-0-2 mark since 2016. The Revolution have collected points in nine consecutive games, tied for the fourth longest streak in club history. This is the club's sixth nine-game stretch without a loss, and its fourth since 2019.

The Revolution, who sit above the playoff line in sixth place at the midway point of their regular season, return home next Sunday, July 3 for a 7:30 p.m. ET meeting with FC Cincinnati at Gillette Stadium. The club's "Salute to Heroes" match will honor military members, first responders, and their families. In addition, there will be an Independence Day fireworks display following the match. The match airs locally on WSBK-TV38 and myRITV (Rhode Island) and on the radio via 98.5 The Sports Hub and 1260 AM Nossa Radio (Portuguese).
