Revs Salvage Draw with New York

Kenny Mansally scored a 90th minute equalizer to help the Revolution leave Giants Stadium with a point after a back-and-forth match against New York Red Bulls on Saturday.

A Jay Heaps own goal created by former Rev Khano Smith in the 35th minute left the team in an early hole, but despite missing six starters the Revs fought hard for an equalizer the rest of the way until Mansally finally found the back of the net to earn the 1-1 draw.

Revs Top Quakes in Season Opener
