Revs notch last second tie, 1-1

Darrius Barnes scored his first career goal five minutes into stoppage time to give the New England Revolution a 1-1 draw against the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night.

The Revolution (7-15-8) have just one win in 13 matches (1-8-4) since beating New York 2-0 on July 8.

Barnes tying goal came shortly after Loel Lindpere put the Red Bulls (14-8-8) ahead in the first minute of stoppage time.

Revolution backup goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth earned the start in place of Matt Reis, and stopped three shots. Red Bulls goalkeeper Bill Guadette made four saves.

New York defender Conor Lade was ejected after he picked up his second yellow card in the 74th minute, and left the Red Bulls short-handed for the final 16 minutes.

New England had two opportunities to score early, but midfielder Lee Nguyen couldnt convert either chance.

Both teams were forced to make early substitutions. New Yorks Rafa Marquez left the game with hamstring tightness while New Englands Flo Lechner suffered a knee injury. Both came off in the 35th minute.

In the 37th, the Red Bulls found their first chance at the scoreboard when Cahill grabbed a pass from Joel Lindpere and pounded a shot that whistled wide of the far post.

Nguyen nearly squeezed a free kick through in the 82nd minute, but Guadette fell to his left to smother the opportunity.

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.
