Revolution Classics: Taylor Twellman notches hat trick vs. DC United

Until Major League Soccer returns to action, NBC Sports Boston will give New England Revolution fans a chance to get their fix by re-airing some classic games. On Saturday, we'll take a look back at when Taylor Twellman's hat trick led the Revs to a dominant 3-0 win over DC United in 2002.

Taylor Twellman notched three hat tricks during his New England Revolution career. The first of the three occurred Sept. 7, 2002, vs. DC United.

Twellman, a rookie at the time, tallied all three of the Revs' goals in their shutout victory. He'd finish the 2002 campaign with a team-leading 23 goals.

The Revolution went on to play in the MLS Cup that season, but fell to the Los Angeles Galaxy. Still, Twellman's sensational performance and standout rookie season showed there was plenty for Revs Nation to be excited about.

Revolution eliminated from MLS is Back tournament after 1-0 loss to Union

The New England Revolution were eliminated from the MLS is Back tournament Saturday night as they suffered a 1-0 loss to the Philadelphia Union.

Sergio Santos scored in the 63rd minute to propel Philadelphia to the quarterfinals and snap the Revs' four-match unbeaten streak.

With midfielder Carles Gil out due to a foot injury, the Revs failed to get anything going offensively. Frustration boiled over after the game as New England coach Bruce Arena was handed a red card, presumably for comments made to the officials.

After their loss, the Revolution now are 1-1-3 with six points in regular season and 1-2-3 overall.
