New England Revolution - 2007 US Open Cup Champions

New England 3-2 FC Dallas
After 12 years of trying, the Revolution finally have a trophy to call their own. The result goes against most of the run of play, which saw FCD control and attack, but is still a deserved victory. The key was making the most of the opposition's mistake and the Revs did that a little better on the night.

Pat Noonan had a good evening, as did Taylor Twellman. For Dallas, Arturo Alvarez was a major factor and it was good to see Kenny Cooper back in things, however it might have been a little too soon for such an important match.

Congratulations to New England for the victory.

NE: Pat Noonan 21'
FCD: Arturo Alvarez 30'
NE: Taylor Twellman 41'
NE: Wells Thompson 57'
FCD: Abe Thompson 64'
