Epic comeback in Portland puts Revs on verge of postseason | “We kept fighting”

PORTLAND, Ore. – Not all points are created equal.

Take, for instance, Wednesday night’s 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers at Providence Park, a result that felt much more like a win for the New England Revolution considering the circumstances.

A pair of goals from Jeremy Ebobisse had the Revs in a 2-0 hole into the 87th minute, and their prospects looked bleak. But then Gustavo Bou’s eighth goal of the season gave them hope, before Carles Gil’s team-leading 10th tally – a cool-as-you-like penalty in the 97th minute – sparked a wild celebration.
