FOXBOROUGH — Things appeared to go swimmingly well for the New England Revolution after they took a 1-0 lead in Wednesday night’s matchup against Real Salt Lake at Gillette Stadium. It appeared the Revolution had seized control of a slugfest with their MLS Western Conference visitors when Ryan Guy broke a scoreless stalemate in the 51st minute by converting a crisply-executed cross from Kelyn Rowe.
But it was far from the knockout punch the Revolution were looking for in a gut-wrenching 2-1 setback.
“It’s a tough one to take,’’ said New England coach Jay Heaps, whose team (2-3-3) must quickly regroup before hosting the New York Red Bulls Saturday night at Gillette. “You fight, but we gave away too much at the end there.’’
