FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution scored four second-half goals on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium, cruising to a 5-1 win over the Philadelphia Union.

Kelyn Rowe led the way with a pair of goals, both coming on deep strikes from 25 yards out.

Rowe's first came in the 26th minute, as he stepped into a Chad Barrett lead pass up the middle and buried the shot low-left, giving the Revs a 1-0 lead.

Philadelphia tied it at 1-1 after Danny Cruz out-ran three New England defenders to a loose ball on a Conor Casey lead pass. Cruz then tapped it past a sprawling Matt Reis, and kicked it into the open net in the 50th minute.

After two Philadelphia goals were called off moments later, the Revs scored four goals in a 15 minute span.

Juan Agudelo, Rowe, and Fagundez scored for New England, with the Union adding an "own goal" on an Agudelo shot from the right side of the box.
