Lee Nyugen's late goal helped the New England Revolution (1-2-1) salvage their outing against the Portland Timbers (3-1-1) in a 1-1 draw Sunday at Providence Park.
In the 85th minute, Nyugen blasted a point-blank goal after Timbers goaltender Jake Gleeson failed to cleanly field a deflected shot from Teal Bunbury.
But the Revs played from behind for most of the game, as the Timbers' Diego Valeri scored a goal in the 12th minute. Valeri found the ball at his feet on a Revs' clearing header. The Portland midfielder shot the ball on a turning volley, and found the back of the net for a gorgeous goal. The Revs backs fought off constant pressure from Timbers striker Fanendo Adi in the minutes that followed.
Kei Kamara got a pair of chances in the box, but couldn't get the ball in the net on either opportunity. On the second, he struck a diving header just high and wide, and appealed for a penalty kick, as he clearly felt he'd been pushed from behind on the play.
For their next match, New England will host the Houston Dynamo on Saturday, April 8 at 2 p.m. at Gillette Stadium.
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.

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.
