New England Revolution 2001
2001 Club by Club
Among the Revs’ newcomers for 2001 were Jamaican midfielder Andy Williams, Caté, a Brazilian playmaker, and Jay Heaps - the 1999 MLS Rookie of the Year and Massachusetts product - who was acquired in a mid-season trade. The Revolution went winless in its first six games and despite several strong stretches during the season, the team failed to qualify for the MLS Cup Playoffs. In the 2001 U.S. Open Cup, however, the Revolution advanced to the championship game against the Los Angeles Galaxy. On Oct. 27, in Fullerton, Calif., the Revs took an early 1-0 lead into the second half, but LA leveled the game and Danny Califf scored two minutes into extra time to clinch the title for the Galaxy.
