Revs look to snap futility against Dallas

FOXBORO The New England Revolution have now gone seven games without a win,
which includes a blown 4-1 halftime lead on Wednesday night in Philadelphia that led to a 4-4 draw.

It marked the Revs third-straight draw, and theyll try to snap out of the current funk
on Saturday night when they host FC Dallas at Gillette Stadium. In each of those three straight games, New England allowed the game-tying goal in the 87th minute or later.

This groups shown the whole season the commitment and the want to win, said
Revolution coach Steve Nicol. We just havent finished it off when we shouldve done
on too many occasions so far this season, particularly the last three games.

FC Dallas enters the game in third place in the Western Conference with 46 points, while the Revolution find themselves tied for last place in the Eastern Conference with just 24 points.

--The Revolution will be without veteran Pat Phelan on Saturday night, thanks to a
concussion he suffered on Wednesday in Philadelphia. Phelan had a headache on
Thursday, and was going through tests on Friday, forcing him to miss practice.

New England will also be without Stephen McCarthy (shoulder) and Sainey Nyasi
(MCL) on Saturday.

Lewis scores in stoppage time, NYCFC beats Revolution, 2-1

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.

Bunbury, Revolution beat Whitecaps, 1-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Teal Bunbury scored his fourth goal in five matches, helping the New England Revolution beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0 on Saturday night.

Each of New England's seven wins has come at home. The Revolution (7-10-5) are 0-8-3 on the road.

Bunbury finished a nice passing sequence in the 53rd minute. Kelyn Rowe, near midfield, tapped a goal kick by Vancouver's Stefan Marinovic to Kei Kamara, who tapped it back to Rowe on the right side for the feed to a charging Bunbury just outside the 6-yard box.

Cody Cropper had two saves for his sixth shutout of the season.

Vancouver (9-8-4) had its three-game road unbeaten streak snapped.
