HARRISON, N.J. (AP) Jermaine Jones finished a counter attack the 85th minute with a tap-in and gave the New England Revolution a 2-1 victory Sunday in the first leg of the MLS Eastern Conference finals.
The result gives the Revolution a significant advantage heading home for the second leg of the aggregate-goals series on Saturday at Gillette Stadium.
Jones knocked in a cross inside the six from Teal Bunbury, who sent the ball across from the right after Lee Nguyen started the break in midfield. Bunbury gave the Revolution the lead early and Bradley Wright-Phillips equalized midway through the first half.
