FOXBORO -- Monarcas Morelia got revenge on the New England Revolution, Wednesday night, and left Gillette Stadium as SuperLiga champions, thanks to a 2-1 win over the Revs that certainly didn't lack second-half drama.

After a scoreless first half, Morelia took a 2-0 lead on a pair of goals from forward Miguel Sabah in the 63rd and 75th minutes.

Sabah scored his first on a penalty kick, after Revs defender Darrius Barnes pulled down Sabah in the box. Twelve minutes later, Sabah added another, putting away a rocket from 25 yards out.

The Revolution cut the lead to 2-1 in the 79th minute, thanks to Kevin Alston's first career professional goal, but it wasn't enough.

Ola Kamara scores twice as Crew beat Revs, 2-0

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.
