HEADLINES

Slide reaches seven: The Revolution’s winless skid is now at seven matches and counting following Sunday night’s mainly dreadful performance — on national television, no less — in Washington. The Boys In Blue fell behind 1-0 early, would try to gain a foothold in the match in the early portions of the second half, but fell apart with lackadaisical defending in the midfield on the goal that put the nail in the coffin. New England (7-9-8, 29 points) is still in seventh place, but barely: DC, meanwhile, captured nine critical points in the span of eight days, and now sits two points adrift of the Revs with 27 -- with two matches in hand.
