Davies, Bunbury help Revolution deal Red Bulls first loss of season

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Charlie Davies and Teal Bunbury scored and the New England Revolution held off the previously unbeaten New York Red Bulls 2-1 on Saturday night.

Davies gave the Revolution (5-2-2) an early lead with a diving header in the ninth minute, finishing from just inside the 6-yard box on London Woodberry's cross. Lee Nguyen and Scott Caldwell's nifty two-pass combo freed Bunbury to double the lead with a right-footed strike in the 60th minute.

The Revolution improved to 17 points, putting them in a tie for first in the MLS with FC Dallas and D.C. United.
