ORLANDO, Fla. -- The New England Revolution completed their 11-day preseason trip here by defeating FC Dallas, 1-0, Wednesday at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The Revolution went into Wednesdays game without starters Shalrie Joseph and Kevin Alston after the pair was sent back to New England because of disciplinary reasons. The Revs were also missing Marko Perovic (tight right adductor).
Sainey Nyassi scored the game's only goal in the 10th minute. Second-year forward Zack Schilawski controlled the ball in the middle field and sprayed it wide right to Nyassi, who burst past his defender before driving a shot inside the far post, off the fingertips of sprawling FC Dallas goalkeeper Chris Seitz.
The Revs were 3-0, with all three victories coming via shutout, in Orlando. They will return home briefly before departing for Kennesaw, GA, where they'll train from March 3-13. They will play the Columbus Crew on March 6 and March 9, and the Houston Dynamo on March 13.
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ola Kamara scored his 14th and 15th goals of the season and the Columbus Crew beat the New England Revolution 2-0 on Sunday night to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Columbus (7-11-11), which played in the 2015 MLS Cup, is ninth in the Eastern Conference, but only five points behind D.C. United for the final playoff spot. New England (9-13-9) is seventh, one point back.
In the 42nd minute, Kamara slid a shot through the legs of defender Darrius Barnes and it got past a diving Brad Knighton. Kamara added a penalty-kick goal in the 84th after he was nudged from behind by London Woodberry.
Kamara has scored five times in the last three games and leads all MLS newcomers for goals scored this season. He trails New York's Bradley Wright-Phillips by five goals for the MLS Golden Boot.
Revolution forward Kei Kamara made his return to Mapfre Stadium after being traded from the Crew in May.
MONTREAL - Kai Kamara scored in the first minute and Kelyn Rowe added two goals to help the New England Revolution beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Saturday night.
The Revolution (9-12-9), who lost to Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup final this week, posted a third straight win in Major League Soccer play with only their second road victory of the season. New England moved two points behind fifth-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
Didier Drogba scored on a penalty for Montreal (9-9-4), which has only one win in seven games. Perhaps more alarmingly, the Impact are 0-3-1 and have conceded 11 goals in their last four home games.
