Herivaux goal gives Revolution OT victory
CARY, N.C. -- Zach Herivaux scored his first goal as a professional, in his first start, as the New England Revolution took a 1-0 extra time win over the Carolina RailHawks in a U.S. Open Cup match at WakeMed Soccer Park Wednesday night.
The match, delayed by lightning, concluded nearly five hours after the scheduled kickoff, Herivaux providing the decider in the 103rd minute with a blast from just inside the penalty arc.
Herivaux, 20, who had played a total of seven minutes in two appearances since signing last season, played a strong game in midfield as the Revolution won in the tournament for the first time since 2014.
The goal was set up by a Scott Caldwell entry pass, Herivaux dummying for Lee Nguyen, who rolled a pass from just outside the left side of the penalty area, Herivaux running onto the ball and firing just under the bar.
Brad Knighton anchored the Revolution defense, which withstood a late rally by the RailHawks.
Herivaux made his Revolution debut as an 87th-minute substitute in a 1-0 loss to the Charlotte Independence in a U.S. Open Cup match last season. This season, Herivaux has played in one match, a four-minute stint in a 3-0 loss at Philadelphia March 20.
