Late Scuffle Between New England Goalie Matt Reis, Houston’s Adam Moffat Results in Suspensions


In the 90th minute of Wednesday night's match against the Dynamo, Revolution goalie Matt Reis let his frustrations get the best of him.

With the ball rolling out of bounds as time expired, Houston's Adam Moffat nailed the Revs' Pat Phelan. Reis, who was pursuing the ball, watched as his teammate dropped to the ground. He then reacted in the way any teammate would and shoved Moffat in the face.

The benches soon cleared, but not before Moffat and Reis got some words in toward each other.

After the game, it was announced that Reis had received a red card for the play. Moffat received his second yellow of the game, resulting in a red. Under MLS rules, both players are ineligible to play in their team's next game.

"Nobody deserves to get red cards," coach Steve Nicol said before learning of Reis' red card. "It was just a lot of huffing and puffing."

Reis had a great game Wednesday night against Houston, completely laying out to make some outstanding plays.

"Reis showed he's the best goalie in the league," teammate A.J. Soares said. "Everyone does a good job, he does a great job."

Unfortunately for the Revs, that great player will be absent Saturday against the Red Bulls.
