Revolution Scores On Late PK, Plays To 2-2 Tie With Orlando City SC
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Lee Nguyen scored on a penalty kick in the 96th minute to give the New England Revolution a 2-2 tie with Orlando City on Sunday.
Kevin Molino had put Orlando City (2-1-3) in front in the 92nd minute with a low close-range blast.
Orlando players argued the hand-ball penalty that led to Nguyen’s penalty kick, suggesting the ball hit Servando Carrasco on the shoulder. Referee Baldomero Toledo also initially called the penalty outside the area and then changed the call after some discussion with his crew.
The Revolution (1-1-5) disputed Molino’s goal, arguing he committed a hand ball.
Kaka opened the scoring in the second minute with the fastest penalty kick in MLS history at 1:37. He converted after Orlando’s Julio Baptista drew a foul 15 seconds into the match.
Teal Bunbury tied it in the 37th minute for the Revs.
