Revs get leg up

HARRISON, N.J. — Calculations change in the dying stages of the first match of a two-legged series. The odds always favor grabbing a second away goal, but the human element usually leads to more conservative tendencies.Revolution midfielder Jermaine Jones saw the play developing in front of him in the waning stages of a match perched tenuously at 1-1. 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.

First impressions: Galaxy 1, Sounders 0

CARSON, Calif. – A 52nd-minute goal from Marcelo Sarvas was the lone tally as the L.A. Galaxy beat the Sounders 1-0 in the first leg of the Western Conference finals on Sunday at the StubHub Center. Here are my first impressions: - Seattle’s game plan worked – for a half Without Osvaldo Alonso, who was neither in the lineup nor on the bench thanks to an injury picked up in the Dallas series, winning the possession battle was always going to be a stretch. So in the first half, the Sounders surrendered the ball on their own terms. Even if L.A. had 62 percent of the possession in the first...
