“I have just been blessed to do what I love, Play soccer and be a goal scorer. But I still have some time and goals under my belt, Kamara told footballsierraleone.net.
Scott Caldwell opened the scoring with just his third career goal in his 132nd regular-season appearance. Kei Kamara returned after missing the Revs last two league matches with a goal and an assist less than 48 hours after welcoming a newborn son into the world.
Diego Fagundez finally broke through for his first goal of 2017 – a just reward for a player who has often been the Revolution’s most dangerous attacker.
Lee Nguyen completed the big win with an easy goal off a Kei Kamara pass to put the Revs up even further with a 4-0 lead at halftime.
“It was just mentality tonight, team spirit,” said Chris Tierney, who returned to the Revs’ starting line-up at left-back. “It’s one of those games that we always talk about after the run we’ve had; I actually think we’ve been playing okay, but haven’t been getting results,” Chris told club’s website.
The Revs next action is on Sunday, May 21, when the club hosts Columbus Crew SC at Gillette Stadium.
