FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Diego Fagundez snapped out of his scoring slump in a big way by tallying twice in the first half to lead the New England Revolution to a 5-0 thrashing over the Seattle Sounders on Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
After going without a goal in his first nine games, Fagundez, last year’s leading scorer for the Revolution, struck in the 29th and 41st minutes. Patrick Mullins scored for the second straight week in the 14th minute, while Teal Bunbury tallied in the 36th. Adding insult to injury for the guests, a Chad Marshall own goal gave the Revolution their fifth score of the game in the 46th minute.
Some early Seattle fireworks quickly faded after five minutes as the Revolution started to tip the field in their favor. Lee Nguyen and Diego Fagundez found looks inside of 10 minutes, but the Revolution wouldn’t have to wait long to break through.
