Revs re-sign goalkeeper Reis

New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis has re-signed with the team, according to a press release.

Reis is a four-time MLS All-Star and holds nearly all of the team's career goalkeeping records, including goals against average (1.33), wins (80), saves (868), shutouts (55) and saves percentage (.725).

Matt has been one of our leaders, on and off the field, since coming to New England, and were pleased he will remain with us, said general manager Michael Burns. With him re-signing with us, we can continue to look toward his leadership and experience as we move into 2012.

Reis has been with the club for nine years and is tied for the record of longest tenure as a Revolution player in club history.

Terms of the contract will not be released, per club policy.

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.
