Revolution Vs. DC United Score Update: Jakovic Gives United 2-0 Lead At The Half

The New England Revolution are 2-0 down going into the halftime break, and they again have a set piece to blame for it. After allowing Brandon McDonald to score the opener in the 15th minute off of a free kick, an abject failure to stay organized and clear their lines resulted in the Revs allowing a second goal to Dejan Jakovic from a scrum caused by a corner kick.

The set piece reached the head of a United player (appeared to be Dwayne De Rosario), who rose essentially uncontested and drilled a header on frame. It was blocked on the way there, but the Revs failed to clear, causing a game of pinball in the box. Eventually it was Jakovic who got his foot to the ball and stuffed it home from barely six yards out.

New England's half didn't get off to a great start. In the 28th minute, after watching DC take the lead not long before, Ryan Guy was removed due to injury and replaced with Fernando Cardenas, forcing Benny Feilhaber to move centrally. The Revs really only managed one clear chance on goal. In the 38th minute, Feilhaber played a slashing through ball from behind the centerline that caught Saer Sene in full flight on goal. Sene took a few touches and tried to nutmeg 'keeper Bill Hamid, but the DC man's reflexes were superior and he just managed to direct the ball wide with his knee.
