Low Impact

It was a familiar scene at my first trip this season to cover the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium Sunday night. With the visiting Montreal Impact, an expansion team new to the MLS this season, the Revs played true to their place at the bottom of the standings, squandering several scoring opportunities en route to a 1-0 loss. A frustrating night for the home town team, for sure.
