Revs overcome slow start, weather delay, Video Review in gritty win over D.C.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – They didn’t come easy, but the New England Revolution left Audi Field with three important points on Tuesday night following a gritty 2-1 win over D.C. United.

The Revs overcame a sloppy start, a 46-minute weather delay, a pair of Video Review decisions that awarded D.C. a penalty and saw midfielder Scott Caldwell sent off, and 10 minutes of second-half stoppage time to push themselves over the line and snap a string of three straight draws in league play.

It’s early still – 16 games remain in the truncated 23-game regular season – but the Revs now sit on 10 points (2-1-4), tied for fourth place in the Eastern Conference and just six points off the pace of MLS-leading Columbus Crew SC.
