Early goals, excitement in the middle, and losing the game late. These are all things that this season's New England Revolution are starting to do to us. The team finally had the home debut of Jose Moreno, to minimal fanfare, and had the comeback of Benny Feilhaber held on a day where the Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, and Boston Red Sox were all playing.

Likely, due to these other events, the crowd at Gillette was announced at a paltry 10,389. And while the game ended - one more time, folks - in heartbreak, the beginning and middle were not as bad as we may actually remember.

From the early goals of Pepe, to the late golazo by Chris Pontius, "The Match in Tweets" presents to you the New England Revolution versus their I-95 Corridor rival D.C. United as all Major League Soccer games should be presented - via Twitter.
