FOXBORO -- The New England Revolution picked up their first win since the season opener on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium, scoring two second-half goals and defeating the Philadelphia Union 2-0.

Diego Fagundez and Lee Nguyen scored the goals for New England, after both teams entered halftime scoreless.

The Revs had several prime scoring opportunities in the first half, but those were either saved by Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath or the shots went wide of the net.

Fagundez was the first to finish his chances though, as he buried a shot from out front after receiving a pass from Kelyn Rowe from the low-right corner of the box. Nguyen got the play started after faking a shot from the top-right side of the box, and then sliding a lead pass down to Rowe in the bottom-right side of the box, who quickly sent it out to Fagundez for the 1-0 Revolution lead in the 61st minute.

Nguyen pretty much sealed the deal on the win after putting home a rebound in the 71st minute. The original shot came off the foot of Saer Sene at the left post that was saved by MacMath and came bouncing right out front to a wide-open Nguyen, who tapped it into the empty net for the 2-0 lead and the eventual 2-0 win.
