A crowd of 4379 soccer fans braved the unseasonably cold temperatures at Finley Stadium Sunday afternoon to watch the New England Revolution beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 in an MLS preseason match.

Both teams have taken up residence in Kennessaw, GA for training camp and traveled to Chattanooga for a preseason match.

The Crew maintained a consistent attack in the first half but the Revolution would be the first team to score with a Sainey Nyassi (Gambia) goal that looked like it deflected off a Crew defender.

The Revs took a 2-0 lead in the 81st minute when Zach Schilawski (Wake Forrest) scored on a hard shot from about 15 yards out after corner kick by Kenny Mansally (Gambia). Mansally's corner was partially cleared by Crew keeper Alex Riggs.

Seconds into stoppage time, Crew forward Tom Heinemann (Railhawks) received the ball out behind the Revs defense and with just the keeper to beat, Heinemann was able to find the net.

A final re-start by the Crew with just seconds left in the game was cleared away by the Revs defense.

The Revs improved to 4-0-0 in the preseason. Head coach Steve Nicol played two different line ups in each of the two periods.

The Crew falls to 1-3-1 in the preseason.

Both teams will play again on Wednesday at Kennesaw State University Soccer Stadium.

However, I have since learned that they were ... (click for more)
