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.
