Kamara, Agudelo each have goal, assist; Revs top Sporting KC

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Kei Kamara and Juan Agudelo each had a goal and an assist to help the New England Revolution beat Sporting Kansas City 3-1 on a rainy Saturday night.

New England (10-14-9) remained in seventh place in the Eastern Conference - two points back of sixth-place Montreal for the final playoff spot. Sporting KC (12-13-7) had its three-game undefeated streak snapped.

Kamara opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Agudelo drew three defenders near the left sideline and he found Kamara wide open in the middle for a breakaway goal. It was Kamara's 11th goal this season, but just his second at Gillette Stadium since being traded from the Columbus Crew in May.

New England took a 2-1 lead in the 75th minute on Kevin Ellis' own goal and Agudelo knocked home Kamara's cross 8 minutes later.

Dominic Dwyer tied it at 1 in the 49th minute for Kansas City when knocked in Ellis' glancing header with his knees.

Penilla's goal late in first half gives Revs a 2-2 tie with Crew

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Cristian Penilla scored the tying goal in the first minute of first-half stoppage time and the New England Revolution held on for a 2-2 draw with the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

Penilla one-timed Juan Agudelo's arching pass to cap the scoring for New England (3-2-2) on the final play of the first half.

Gyasi Zardes made it 2-1 for the Crew (3-3-2) in the 43rd minute with a right-footed shot from the middle of the 18-yard box for his fifth goal of the season.

Columbus also took the opening lead in the ninth minute when Milton Valenzuela sent Federico Higuain's deep cross back toward the face of the goal and New England's Andrew Farrell inadvertently headed it into the back of his own net.

Teal Bunbury leveled it at 1-all in the 14th minute with a right-footed shot that deflected slightly off defender Jonathan Mensah and bounced in off the far post.

The Crew snapped a three-game losing streak.

FOXBORO - Jacori Hayes scored his first MLS goal and Jimmy Maurer had his second shutout in FC Dallas' 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Hayes first-timed a cross from Roland Lamah to give FC Dallas (2-0-3) the lead in the 76th minute. New England failed to clear a cross by Santiago Mosquera and Lamah rolled it to Hayes, charging through the center of the box, who tapped just inside the near post.
