Fagundez has goal and assist, Revolution beat NYCFC 3-1

FOXBOROUGH -- Diego Fagundez had a goal and an assist to help the New England Revolution beat New York City FC 3-1 on Saturday night.

The Revolution (8-12-9) have won two straight to close within a point of Orlando City for the sixth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

NYCFC (12-9-8) had just moved back atop the Eastern Conference standings with its victory over D.C. United last week.

With NYCFC goalkeeper Josh Saunders dropping to his knees, Juan Agudelo looked as if he would shoot to the near post but fired his right-footed shot to the top far post in the 21st minute. Fagundez assisted on the goal.

Lee Nguyen took a cross from Kelyn Rowe from just outside the 6-yard box, and then tapped a right-footed shot to the near post to put the Revs up 2-0 just before the break.

Frank Lampard scored in the 49th minute for NYCFC before Fagundez slipped past three defenders and scored in the 58th minute.

MONTREAL - Kelyn Rowe scored in stoppage time to give the New England Revolution a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Impact on Sunday in their regular-season finale.

Rowe, a late substitute, put a shot from 30 yards out just under the bar behind goalkeeper Max Crepeau moments after Montreal's Matteo Mancosu tied it with a 90th-minute goal.

Diego Fagundez and Krisztian Nemeth also scored for New England (13-15-6).

Patrice Bernier scored in his final game for Montreal (11-17-6).

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Diego Fagundez scored two goals in the second half and the New England Revolution beat 10-man New York City FC 2-1 on Sunday.

New England (12-15-6) set a club record with 12 wins at home. NYC (16-9-8) had several possibilities to clinch a bye in the playoffs but needed at least a draw.

Fagundez opened the scoring in the 51st minute and made it 2-0 in the second minute of stoppage time with his sixth goal of the season. Andrew Farrell set up the first goal by dribbling into the area and finding Fagundez at the top of the box. It was his first goal since June 3. Fagundez's next goal was a tap-in after his breakaway shot was knocked back to him.

Khiry Shelton scored for NYC in the third minute of extra time by getting past the defense for a long ball and heading it in.

NYC's Jack Harrison was shown a straight red card in the 26th minute for a late challenge on Teal Bunbury. It was Harrison's first red card of his professional career and he'll miss the regular-season finale against Columbus Crew SC next weekend.
