Lee Nguyen's late goal helps Revs draw Timbers, 1-1

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.

Revolution lose to FC Dallas 1-0 to snap unbeaten 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.

Maurer, who finished with a career-high six saves, has two clean sheets in five career starts and his .905 save percentage is the highest in MLS.

Dallas, which won on the road for just the second time in its last 14 tries, is unbeaten in its last six regular-season games, dating to last season. New England (3-2-1) had its four-game unbeaten streak snapped.

Farrell gets first career goal as Revolution defeat Impact, 4-0

FOXBORO -- Andrew Farrell scored his first career Major League Soccer goal in 164 appearances and the New England Revolution eased past the 10-man Montreal Impact 4-0 on Friday night.

New England (3-1-1) extended its home unbeaten streak to 11 matches. Montreal (2-3-0) has lost five straight in the series.

It took just seven minutes for New England to take advantage of Montreal's first-half send off. Wilfried Zahibo sent a long pass over the defense and Teal Bunbury settled it with his chest for a calm finish inside the far post in the 20th minute.

Farrell, a defenseman selected No. 1 overall in 2013 MLS SuperDraft, made it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time by finishing a deflected ball. Diego Fagundez, who had penalty kick blocked in the 36th minute, scored his third goal of the season in the 71st and Wilfried Zahibo had his first MLS goal nine minutes later.

Montreal midfielder Saphir Taider received a straight red card in the 13th for studs-up contact with Luis Caicedo.
