It's halftime at Gillette Stadium and both teams have struggled to get ahead of the other. The wind is blowing and the elbows are swinging, providing the Foxboro faithful with a raucous, chippy first half but with only a handful of chances for the two clubs.
The first clear chance came for Sporting Kansas City in the 19th minute when a corner kick found its way into the Revs' penalty area, and was rebounded within the 6-yard box. CJ Sapong got a good hit on it, but it ricocheted off Clyde Simms and hit the crossbar. The ball was eventually cleared out of the box by the Revolution defense.
The Revs had a few chances themselves, a couple of which seemed well on their way to shots on goal by Juan Toja, but he was whistled offside for both. and despite a handful of corner kicks, the Revolution has been unable to convert any into a solid chance.
With neither sides being able to really settle or find a rhythm, Jay Heaps and Peter Vermes are both likely to try to light a fire under their respective sides during the break. Will it amount to at least a more entertaining 2nd half? I sure hope so.
