Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.

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.
