Welcome to One Shining Moment, where we take a look at the best moment for the New England Revolution in their most recent game and give the readers a breakdown.

So what was the One Shining Moment for the Revs in their latest 3-1 win over the New York Red Bulls? Let’s just say that New England saved the best for last.

The play begins in the 81st minute with New York in possession down the right flank. A cross is sent into the box and cleared by Matt Polster and eventually lands on the feet of Tommy McNamara who has come off the bench.

McNamara then is able to start the attack by sending a pass up to Gustavo Bou. Carles Gil has some open space and Bou makes the smart decision laying the ball off to the captain.

Bou makes a smart run after distributing the ball and fans know that Gil will make the right play. Of course the Spaniard adds some flair, but he gifts a beautiful ball to Bou and the 31-year-old was off to the races.

Now Bou has plenty of options here. He could try and go for goal and secure a brace or he can try and make an assist. Bou has plenty of room ahead of him so it would be hard to blame him if he decided to shoot, but also Buksa is racing towards goal.

Bou ends up making the smart play and lays the ball off for Buksa. There was pretty much no way that the striker could miss. With that Buksa had his third goal of the season and Bou added an assist to his output on Saturday.

It was exactly the type of play that you expect to get out of your three Designated Players. If Gil, Bou, and Buksa keep playing like this, the Revolution will be a tough team to beat.
