FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution scored four unanswered goals on Saturday night to get back on the winning track by defeating Vancouver Whitecaps FC, 4-1, at Gillette Stadium.

Vancouver's Eric Hassli gave his team an early 1-0 lead in the fifth minute, but New England quickly answered, thanks to Lee Nguyen's first of two goals, in the sixth minute.

Nguyen wasn't just scoring on Saturday night against his former Whitecaps club, he was also dishing. Saer Sene scored the eventual game-winner in the 24th minute, putting the Revs up 2-1 as he received a nice pass down inside the box from Nguyen, and Sene buried it low for the lead.

Shalrie Joseph made it 3-1 in the 33rd minute, as he finished a play from the middle of the box, after a Vancouver defender intercepted Sene's attempted pass out front from the right wing. Joseph stepped up to the loose ball, and put it home for the two-goal cushion.

The Revs weren't done just yet, as Nguyen added his second goal of the night in the 72nd minute, as he buried a deep shot from the left wing, outside of the box. Nguyen took a throw-in, knocked it down once with his foot, let it bounce, and booted it out of mid-air, and it ended up going top shelf, topping off one heck of a night for Nguyen and the Revs.
