SANTA CLARA, Calif. It's not a fluke that Jamaica made it to the Bay Area. It also wasn't a fluke that they went toe-to-toe with the U.S. Men's National Team in their, 2-1, Gold Cup final loss.

The Reggae Boyz have much to feel good about: Andre Blake's Golden Ball and Golden Glove performance over the course of the tournament, edging Juan Carlos Osorio's Mexico in the semifinals, and more impressively, reaching the Gold Cup final for a second consecutive time.

The Revolution scored on Friday night, but the goal was accompanied by plenty of controversy.

When the New England Revolution scored in the 55th minute of Friday's game, it was the first time they had done so from the run of play in 325 minutes. The tally wasn't without controversy, however, as New York Red Bulls defender Kemar Lawrence was down injured when Diego Fagundez slotted home Juan Agudelo's pass.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. In the mind of Red Bulls coach Jesse Marsch, there's an unwritten code that all soccer players are supposed to follow. And part of that code is to kick the ball out of play when an opposing player is down due to injury.

So when he saw center back Kemar Lawrence was on the ground after feeling a pop in his knee, Marsch expected the Revolution, who were in possession, to hit the pause button on their advance.
