Revs Blow Late 2-1 Lead, Escape With Draw

Well, the result tonight was probably just, but the Revs have to be disappointed to have given up a 86th minute goal to the Columbus Crew. Here's some quick thoughts:

* Joseph dominated the midfield, but the Crew controlled the wings.

* Twellman had a great chance to put the game away in the second half after a nice feed from Pat Noonan. He'll be hitting himself when he sees the replay.

* Khano Smith has returned to his summer 2006 form. That isn't a good thing.

* The Revs were sitting on their lead for most of the second half. They really could ave pushed harder for another goal. This was our problem last year. This lack of urgency will come come back to bite them with the way the playoff spots are deermined from now on.

I'll be running a Revs stadium fluff series over the ten day break. If you're into that kind of thing, check back often for the first installment.
