Revolution must put aside last year’s slide

FOXBOROUGH — The Revolution hope to continue their strong 2013 season Saturday night when they host the Houston Dynamo, but must deal with the memory of a string of poor results at this time last year.

The Revolution’s point total is nearly identical to last season’s at the midway point (22 points in 2012 through 17 games, 24 points in 2013 through 17 games). But in 2012, New England endured a 10-game winless run (0-7-3) in the second half, leaving any postseason hopes in the dust.
