FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- With their 1-1 draw with Houston on Wednesday, the Revolution (4-11-10, 21 points) remain in eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings. For the Dynamo (7-7-11, 32 points), the draw keeps them in fourth place.

• Matt Reis collected a season-high nine saves. After a postgame confrontation with referee Michael Kennedy involving a play in which Pat Phelan was pushed to the ground in the dying seconds of stoppage time, a red card was issued to Reis for abusive language, which will force him to sit out Saturday night’s match against New York.

• The draw extended the Revs' winless streak to four games (0-2-2). Meanwhile, the Dynamo remain winless on the road (0-4-8).

• Ryan Cochrane’s fourth-minute goal was not only his first of the season, but his first MLS goal since October 25, 2008, when he scored off a corner kick against Toronto FC as a member of the San Jose Earthquakes.

• Cochrane’s goal was the third-quickest this season by the Revs. On March 20, Shalrie Joseph scored a third-minute goal against Los Angeles, while Sainey Nyassi scored a third-minute goal against Seattle on June 26.

• The Revs own a 4-2-6 record in games in which they score first, and a 1-1-4 record when they go into the half with the lead.

• The Revs failed to get a win in the season series versus Houston for the first time since 2006, when the clubs settled for a pair of draws.

• The Revs (4-11-10, 22 points) are three points behind last year’s pace through 25 games. Last season, the Revs went 7-14-4 through their first 25 games.
