MOST COMMENTED

Coming off short rest after playing in Seattle on Thursday night, the New England Revolution didn't show signs of tiring at home against Real Salt Lake on Sunday. A Kheli Dube hat trick - the first New England hat trick since Taylor Twellman scored three against Columbus on Sept. 10, 2005 - propelled New England to a 3-1 victory. The win moved the Revolution into a tie for third place in the Eastern Conference with Toronto FC.

Dube praised the team's effort. "It's not like I did all the work," Dube said. "It starts with 11 players on the team, and it's all about teamwork. This has been a great weekend for us, getting two wins, and I think we played really well, which is great."

Dube was one of four changes that Revolution coach Steve Nicol made to the starting XI that won in Seattle on Thursday night. Nicol also brought in Maurice Castro (making his first start of the season), Michael Videira and Wells Thompson.

"I think the (four) changes we made all worked tonight," Nicol said. "Wells (Thompson) I thought did a great job of going forward and defensively, Mauricio (Castro) did the same thing, put some great balls in and did a good job defensively, and (Michael) Videira, again, did the same, he held the ball up, won his fair share of headers, he had a couple of chances, had an assist, so all in all it worked. The fresh legs gave us that energy and it kind of spread through the rest of the team."
