2. MLS: Revs tame Bulls without Shalrie Joseph, who was hurt in nightclub fight
September 21st, 2006 1:47PM



The New England Revolution won 2-0 at New York on Wednesday despite the absence of midfielder Shalrie Joseph, who is out for the rest of the regular season with a hand injury.

According to reports in the Boston Globe and, Joseph hurt his hand last week during an altercation at a Boston nightclub. He needed surgery to repair a damaged tendon and several nerves in a finger on his right hand. Playing with the injury could result in Joseph permanently losing feeling in his fingers, according to the Globe.

Before beating the Red Bulls, the Revs had notched only one win in 12 games that Joseph has missed since joining the team in 2003.

Taylor Twellman and Andy Dorman scored for the Revs and ruined the New York Red Bulls' chance to move past fourth-place Kansas City and into a playoff spot.

The Red Bulls are in fifth place with 32 points while fourth-place Kansas City has 33. Both teams have four games left and they meet in the season finale. New York also plays D.C. United, Chicago and Colorado. The Wizards face New England, Salt Lake and Chivas USA before the showdown at New York. Click here for NY-NE summary.

Mo Johnston 2-3-7 (win-loss-tie)
Richie Williams* 3-3-2
Bruce Arena 2-4-2
* Interim head coach.
