Warren's Wait For A Win Finally Over
Boston Herald, August 21st, 2008 11:30AM

MOST COMMENTED

New England Revolution goalkeeper Doug Warren has been waiting a long time. Not just to get some Major League Soccer playing time ahead of first choice keeper Matt Reis, but to record an MLS win too. Keeping sticks for the Revs Wednesday in a 2-1 win over D.C. United, he finally managed both.

Former United keeper Warren had not featured in an MLS win since August 2005. Deputizing for Reis, whose string of 7,975 consecutive minutes played were ended by a right adductor strain, Warren saved two of the three shots on target put his way and stuck to his pregame pledge to "keep things simple," writes John Connolly. The win took his side back to the top of the Eastern Conference and the overall MLS rankings.

"I thought he looked confident," Revs coach Steve Nicol said of Warren, who has kept his eye in with a number of U.S. Open Cup appearances this season. "A couple of times he had to make decisions, and when he did he made the right one. That's half the battle."
