KC extends Revolution slide, 1-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Teal Bunbury scored in the 20th minute to give Sporting KC a 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night.

Sporting KC (11-8-4) snapped a three-match (0-2-1) winless streak and clinched the three-match season series against New England with two wins and a tie.

New England (6-11-5) had its winless skid extended to five matches (0-4-1), having scored just two goals over the span. The Revolution were shutout in all three matches against Sporting KC this season, including a 3-0 loss on March 17 and a 0-0 draw on July 21.

New England has just one win among its last nine matches (1-4-4) and slipped to 5-3-3 at home.

New England surrendered the first goal in a match for the 11th time this season when Bunbury beat a New England defender to a high bouncing ball, spun free on the left side and beat onrushing goalkeeper Matt Reis with a right-footed shot to the lower right corner for his fourth goal of the season.

New England wasted two prime scoring chances.

Congo-born Dimitry Imbongo, getting his first start at striker for the Revolution, collected a cross from Benny Feilhaber in the 36th minute, but sent a wide-open blast from atop the penalty box area way over the net. In the 49th minute, Imbongo headed Ryan Guy's cross over the crossbar from point-blank range.

Sporting KC goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen notched his 10th shutout of the season, having to make just three saves and facing just one corner kick, in the 76th minute. Nielsen preserved the shutout with a save on a left-footed shot off the left flank by New England's Chris Tierney at 86.

NEW YORK - Jonathan Lewis scored in stoppage time to help New York City FC beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Sunday for its third straight victory.

The 20-year-old rookie has scored his only two MLS goals in back-to-back games.

Villa trapped a long cross from RJ Allen on the left side and dropped it to Ben Sweat, who first-timed a left footer to Lewis at the top of the 6-yard box for the finish in the fourth minute of injury time.

Teal Bunbury put away a rebound to open the scoring for New England (8-11-5) in the 57th minute. Andrew Farrell's shot from distance backed up goalkeeper Sean Johnson against the goal line, where he spilled the stop and Bunbury scored from point-blank range. It was his fifth goal in the last five games. Villa tied it for NYC (14-7-4) in the 77th with his MLS-leading 19th goal.

The Revolution are winless in their last 14 road games, a franchise record.
