Revolution blow 4-1 lead, tie Union 4-4

CHESTER, Pa. (AP) -- Freddy Adu scored, Sebastien Le Toux had two second-half goals and the Philadelphia Union overcome a three-goal deficit to tie the New England Revolution 4-4 on Wednesday night.

Le Toux scored on a penalty kick in the 80th minute to pull the Union (8-7-1) within a goal, then tied it in the first minute of stoppage time. Roger Torres also scored for the Union.

Philadelphia has a seven-match winless streak (0-3-4) and hasn't won since July 17 in a 3-0 victory at New England.

Rajko Lekic, A.J. Soares, Moncef Zerka and Benny Feilhaber scored for the Revolution (4-11-12). They have a seven-game winless streak (0-2-5).

Philadelphia was without Faryd Mondragon, the All-Star goalkeeper who fractured his right ring finger in last Saturday in a 2-1 loss at Real Salt Lake. Rookie Zac MacMath made his first career start for the Union.

This game was originally scheduled Aug. 28, but was moved because of Hurricane Irene.

Diego Fagundez scores two goals; Revs rally to beat Crew, 2-1

Diego Fagundez scores two goals; Revs rally to beat Crew, 2-1

FOXBORO -- Diego Fagundez scored two goals in 10 minutes and the New England Revolution rallied from an early deficit to beat the Columbus Crew 2-1 on Sunday.

Fagundez has scored all three of his goals this season in the last two games. The Revolution (3-4-4) have back-to-back wins, for the first time this season, after a five-match winless streak.

A 22-year-old homegrown, Fagundez ran onto a free ball on the left flank, sped up and pushed home the finish into the far corner in the 34th minute to cap the scoring.

Just outside the box, Ola Kamara side-netted a running half-volley - off a perfectly placed pass by Wil Trapp from well-beyond midfield - to give Columbus (6-5-1) a 1-0 lead in the 20th minute. After a turnover by the Crew in their own territory, Fagundez tied it moments later. Kelyn Rowe won the ball, tapped it to Lee Nguyen, who hit a streaking Kei Kamara for a one-timer that set up a tap-in half-volley.

Cody Cropper had his second consecutive shutout, including four saves, for New England.

Andrew Farrell was sent off for a stud-up challenge on Waylon Francis in the third minute of injury time.
