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 2-2 draw with the Columbus Crew? Well if you score the first goal in a new stadium we are going to talk about it. If DeJuan Jones left foot is involved we have to talk about it.

One Shining Moment in 2-2 draw with Columbus Crew - Brampton Buchanan Silences Poorly Named Stadium

The play starts with DeJuan Jones on the ball. He is 1-on-1 with the Crew defender and has plenty of options.

Jones starts to display his fancy footwork and has Columbus on the back foot. I don’t know if you are aware, but Jones is quite fast and he put that pace to work.

Jones makes the decision to utilize his speed and dash towards the end line. For someone who naturally isn’t left-footed, this could lead to some problems and have the attack come crashing down.

Now here you will see that Bou is in the box. While the striker is on a goal-scoring streak, he isn’t exactly the best in the air. Jones could go for goal or try and cut the ball back to his right foot.

But Jones decides to send a cross into the box... with his left foot. The goal scorer still isn’t in the frame which is a testament to Jones’ vision on the field.

Tajon Buchanan showed off his hops and left above the defenders to give New England the lead. It was quite the sendoff for Buchanan who is now with Team Canada preparing for the Gold Cup.

A 10/10 celly here from Tajon. It was the perfect start for New England who needed to silence the crowd quickly or else they would be in for a long night.
