In the Boston Globe, Frank Dell’Apa recounts Saturday night’s match against the New York Red Bulls. Late-game dramatics saw the teams draw, 1-1, with the Revs equalizing in the fifth minute of stoppage time. Jay Heaps said of the team’s mentality, “We’re down a goal after the 93d minute, they know they have a minute left, and they pull their socks up and get something out of nothing.”
 
Darrius Barnes is the focus of this ESPN Boston piece, which details his game-tying heroics on Saturday. Brian O’Connell takes a look at the defender’s first career goal in context and what it meant for the team. "It's been a long time coming," Barnes said. "It's just great that it came at that point in time.”
