Revs draw 3-3 after taking 3-0 lead over Chivas USA

FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution's winless skid continued on Wednesday night. Their 3-3 draw to Chivas USA marked the Revs' ninth-straight match without a win.
This one is extra painful though.
Not just because former Revolution captain Shalrie Joseph scored two goals against his former team at Gillette Stadium, but because New England blew a 3-0 lead.
The Revs scored three goals in the first 22 minutes, but Chivas USA got a pair of goals from Joseph before the end of the first half, cutting New England's lead to 3-2.
Not even three minutes into the second half, Chivas USA tied the game at 3-3 on a Miller Bolanos tap-in from out front.
The last time the Revs won a game was on July 8. They are 0-7-2 during their nine game winless skid.

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.
