Lee Nyugen's late goal helped the New England Revolution (1-2-1) salvage their outing against the Portland Timbers (3-1-1) in a 1-1 draw Sunday at Providence Park.
In the 85th minute, Nyugen blasted a point-blank goal after Timbers goaltender Jake Gleeson failed to cleanly field a deflected shot from Teal Bunbury.
But the Revs played from behind for most of the game, as the Timbers' Diego Valeri scored a goal in the 12th minute. Valeri found the ball at his feet on a Revs' clearing header. The Portland midfielder shot the ball on a turning volley, and found the back of the net for a gorgeous goal. The Revs backs fought off constant pressure from Timbers striker Fanendo Adi in the minutes that followed.
Kei Kamara got a pair of chances in the box, but couldn't get the ball in the net on either opportunity. On the second, he struck a diving header just high and wide, and appealed for a penalty kick, as he clearly felt he'd been pushed from behind on the play.
For their next match, New England will host the Houston Dynamo on Saturday, April 8 at 2 p.m. at Gillette Stadium.
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.
