Revs winless in six straight after 1-0 loss to Impact

FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution didn't get many breaks on Sunday night at Gillette Stadium, and as a result of a dominating solo effort from Montreal's Sanna Nyassi in the second half, the Impact defeated the Revs 1-0 at Gillette Stadium.

In the 61st minute, Nyassi took the ball up the middle of the field -- and the length of the field -- by himself, and finished with a fancy "nutmeg" by putting the ball through A.J. Soares' legs and then unloading a bullet into the top-right corner of the net.

The Revs had plenty of chances both before and after that goal, but they didn't do anything more than hit the post and the cross bar.

New England is now winless in six straight games, with their last win coming on July 8.

Agudelo's two goals lead Revs past Minnesota 5-2 in home opener

Juan Agudelo scored two goals to lead the Revolution to a 5-2 victory over Minnesota United in New England's home opener before 11,571 Saturday at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.

Agudelo scored in the fourth and 41st minutes as the Revs - held to one goal in their first two games - picked up their first points of the season after opening with losses in Colorado and Dallas.

New England's original home opener, two weeks ago against Orlando, was postponed by cold weather. 

After Collen Warner's goal in the 15th minute tied it for expansion Minnesota, Kei Kamara (21st minute) and Lee Nguyen (penalty kick in the 32nd) made it 3-1 before Agudelo completed a four-goal outburst in the first half with his second goal of the game.

Nguyen's tally moved him into a tie with Steve Ralston for second place on the Revs career goals list with his 42nd. They trail Taylor Twellman (101).

Chris Tierney, playing in his 200th MLS game, all with the Revs, capped the scoring with a penalty-kick goal in the 52nd minute.

The Revs next play Sunday, April 2 on the road against the Portland Timbers.
