Soares’ effort on Di Vaio prevented the Impact from increasing their lead headed into halftime. After Di Vaio beat the Revs’ offside trap and streaked toward goal one-on-one with Revs goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth, Soares sprinted back and slid in to block Di Vaio’s shot on a wide open goal. | WATCH THE PLAY
