Portland Timbers vs. New England Revolution: Bobby Shuttleworth saves point for Revs

Revolution goalkeeper makes eight saves to register his second clean sheet in the Pacific Northwest in less than a month.

There's something about the Pacific Northwest that seems to agree with Bobby Shuttleworth. The New England Revolution goalkeeper made eight saves and posted his second shutout there in about three weeks, salvaging a point in a 0-0 tie with the Portland Timbers on Thursday. Shuttleworth and the Revolution also shut out the Seattle Sounders on April 13.

The Timbers dominated the match from the very start, with Shuttleworth coming up with several big saves throughout the match to keep it scoreless. Among Shuttleworth's better moments were a stop of Darlington Nagbe on a one-on-one chance and another off a close-range Ryan Johnson volley.

Shuttleworth's efforts were almost enough for the Revolution to pull out the full three points, too. The Revolution's best chance came in the 84th minute when Jerry Bengston slipped a ball behind the Timbers defense that allowed Saer Sene to run onto it. Sene hit a strong left-footed shot toward the near post, but Donovan Ricketts was able to get down quickly and make the save.

The shutout was the first time the Timbers had failed to score this season, but the point was enough to move them into a tie for second place in the Western Conference. The Revolution remained in seventh place in the Eastern Conference.
