Revolution snap skid, win 2-0 over Crew

The New England Revolution won their first game since July 8 on Wednesday night at Gillette Stadium. Their 2-0 win over the Columbus Crew snapped a 10-game winless skid.
After a scoreless first half, Dimitry Imbongo scored New England's first goal in the 53rd minute, as he knocked home a wide-open rebound from out front after a Diego Fagundez shot hit the right post and took the Crew goalkeeper out of the play.
The Revs made it 2-0 in the 74th minute, as Columbus defender Chad Marshall headed an own goal over his own goalkeeper and put it into his own net to secure the win.
