Revolution Vs. Crew Halftime Update: New England And Columbus Take 0-0 Stalemate Into Half

Despite creating - and defending - several chances throughout the first forty-five minutes, the New England Revolution have carried a 0-0 score into the interval against the Columbus Crew at Gillette Stadium. New England arguably had the better of the play, but that didn't stop Columbus from creating several chances and coming dangerously close to taking the lead.

Benny Feilhaber should have given the Revolution the lead inside the first minute. Lee Nguyen played an excellent aerial ball forward to Saer Sene, who chested it down for Feilhaber, but the US international's volley spun wide of the far post when he really should have done better.

Not to be outdone, Eddie Gaven fluffed a golden chance at the other end ten minutes later. Emilio Renteria sent a low cross in from the right that found Gaven all alone at the near post, but his attempted redirecting touch did nothing but send the ball well wide.

Jose Moreno was the next who should have scored after finding himself one-on-one with Andy Gruenebaum, but his touch let him down and allowed the keeper to come out and smother his shot to avert the danger. Milovan Mirosevic then had arguably the best chance of the game after a mesmerizing run from Justin Meram. Meram's pass found Mirosevic wide, and the midfielder curled a shot that clanged off the crossbar with Matt Reis beaten.
