FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls extended the New England Revolution’s unbeaten run to seven games, but it was a fifth draw in that stretch, and this one was particularly frustrating.
“I’m disappointed,” said assistant coach Richie Williams, serving as head coach for the third straight game as Bruce Arena finished his suspension. “I know the players are disappointed. We expect when we’re at home to get three points, and I think we played well enough to get three points on the day, so it’s disappointing.”
New England started slow and conceded the opening goal for the first time this season when Omir Fernandez gave the visitors a lead in the 35th minute, but the Revs responded with an equalizer just six minutes later when they beat RBNY’s offside trap and Teal Bunbury squared for Gustavo Bou to finish.
