There are so many ways to look at the Red Bulls’ 3-2 defeat at the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium Wednesday night.

Things looked promising early as they controlled play and outshot the hosts in the opening half, 10-5. The Revs, however, held a 1-0 lead at the break.

The Revs wound up grabbing a three-goal lead as the young Red Bulls team looked dazed and confused on defense.

After finally getting their composure, the visitors regrouped and made a game of it only to fall short against their MLS Eastern Conference rivals.

The result dropped New York (12 points) fell to 4-5-0 while New England (7-1-2, 23) solidified its conference lead under former Red Bulls head coach Bruce Arena.

“We are very disappointed. Right now I’ve been feeling for my coaching team and for every single player,” head coach Gerhard Struber said. “We expected today a good performance over the whole game. We have in some moments, big troubles and.

“At this level we cannot make breaks in the game. We are not quick enough in the brain.”

He didn’t score a goal, but the Revs captain Carles Gil was the man of the match, setting up all three tallies for the hosts.

Gil began his passing showcase as he sent Tajon Buchanan in on goalkeeper Carlos Coronel and the latter scored for a 1-0 edge in the 26th minute.

Six minutes later, more Gil magic doubled the lead. This time he found DeJuan Jones’ overlapping run as the left back scored at the near post for a two-goal bulge.

“In some moments we are not ready enough,” Struber said.

“I think we lost very quickly the first goal and maybe this was the reason why we played bad in the first half,” Red Bulls forward Klimala said.

The Revs then embarrassed the Red Bulls on the visitors’ corner kick in the 51st minute. New England cleared quickly, and Gil found an onrushing Gustavo Bou, who scored on a counterattack for a 3-0 advantage.

Struber said up until Wednesday’s game the Red Blls had done “a great job, [an] outstanding job” on set pieces. “But today was different,” he added.

The Red Bulls, however, did not give up.

Two minutes, Klimala sliced the lead to 3-1 with his first MLS goal off Fabio feed, past goalkeeper Matt Turner.

“I am sure if we played first half like the second half, we would win this game,” Klimala said.

During a scramble after a corner kick in the penalty area in the 75th minute, Andres Reyes helped New York to climb with a goal.
