Playing with a heavy heart, Delamea made the nylon weep

FOXBOROUGH — Antonio Delamea has battled injuries — a concussion earlier in the season, other maladies that kept him out of the lineup — in this, his third full season with the Revolution.

Yet on Saturday night, with six changes made thanks to the short turnaround from Wednesday’s 1-1 draw to Philadelphia, Delamea made the most of his first appearance in either competition for the first time in nearly two months, scoring his first goal in just over two years.

And as we learned postgame, the Slovenian played Saturday’s game against Houston with a heavy heart.
