Revolution finally enjoy trip to Jersey

HARRISON, N.J. -- For the first time since Red Bull Arena opened in 2010, there were smiles on the faces of Revolution players and coaches in the visitors’ locker room. After entering Sunday’s first leg of the Eastern Conference finals winless in each of their last six contests at the Red Bulls’ home park, the Revolution finally emerged victorious after staking a 2-1 win. While plenty of players have come and gone since the Revolution’s first trip to the state-of-the-art stadium, veteran defender Chris Tierney has witnessed each of the team’s successive setbacks.

Jones makes up for missed chances

HARRISON, N.J. -- Few would’ve blamed Jermaine Jones for sticking to a defensive stance in the waning stages of a level match against the Red Bulls. But a draw clearly wasn’t what Jones had in mind on a late foray in the final third. Instead of staying back and fortifying the rear to secure a valuable road result for the Revolution, Jones raced alongside Lee Nguyen on a counterattack looking for an opportunity to score. He wouldn’t have to wait long.

He could have held his ground as the New York Red Bulls pressed for a winner, but he selected a different, more adventurous path — keeping with the way his audacious side has tackled the playoffs to date.

Bunbury capitalizes on opportunity

HARRISON, N.J. -- Teal Bunbury sure picked a good time to use his left foot. After linking up with Jermaine Jones on the right, Bunbury ran central, and with only one option at his disposal, the right-footed Bunbury uncorked a shot with his opposite foot to pave the way for a 2-1 Revolution win in Sunday’s first leg of the Eastern Conference finals. “I had a good feeling it was going in,” Bunbury said. “My left foot isn’t my strong foot, but I feel like I took it well.

Charlie Davies attacks new opportunity

FOXBORO — Every match adds another layer of responsibility for Revolution forward Charlie Davies. At Brooks School and Boston College, he was a speedy threat capable of dashing behind the line at any point, but his pace isn’t enough to thrive now. There are larger considerations at hand to aid the team and keep Davies in the central role he craves.

Revs keep eye on Red Bulls' unsung heroes

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- For all the praise that Thierry Henry and Bradley Wright-Phillips have received this year, one opposing coach believes that some of the duo’s success can be traced to a pair of less-heralded teammates. While the midfield maestro and his golden boot-winning teammate will have their compasses pointed toward the New England net come Sunday, Dax McCarty and Eric Alexander will quietly go about their business to provide defensive cover.

Jermaine Jones: Revs want to attack vs. Thierry Henry, Red Bulls

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- During the conference semifinals against Columbus, the Revolution offense put the rest of the postseason field on notice when they racked up a record seven goals. Now, with a potent New York attack on tap, it's the defense's turn. Revolution coach Jay Heaps knows that his backline will be challenged by the Red Bulls' offense during the conference finals. But it's fair to say the spotlight will shine especially bright on his fullbacks come Sunday's first leg clash at Red Bull Arena.

Revs look to conquer Red Bull Arena demons

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Red Bull Arena has never been a particularly hospitable place for the Revolution to play since it opened its doors four years ago. And center back A.J. Soares doesn’t expect that to change much anytime soon. Although the Revolution enter Sunday’s first leg of the conference finals as the higher seed against the resurgent Red Bulls, Soares knows it won’t be easy for his squad to snap its six-game winless streak at the state-of-the-art stadium.
