Time for Boston fans to take notice of Revolution

FOXBOROUGH — A sun-splashed day, an enthusiastic crowd, a first-place team hosting a bitter rival, everything about the setting was perfect for the New England Revolution to proselytize soccer to the nonbelievers. Well, everything except the result.

Despite a frustrating 2-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Sunday at Gillette Stadium, the Revolution remain atop the table — in soccer parlance that means in first place — in the Eastern Conference with 23 points (7-5-2). The Revs squandered numerous chances to convert a goal in a game they controlled, losing to New York in Foxborough for the first time since 2002.
