Guzan tough in goal for Atlanta in 0-0 draw with Revolution

FOXBORO, Mass. - Brad Guzan made five saves, barely deflecting Lee Nguyen's free kick in the 87th minute, to give Atlanta United a 0-0 draw with the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Nguyen's long kick from the left side curved left, almost fooling Guzan, but the goalkeeper was able to leap and barely punch it into the crossbar. He made another save off a set piece in stoppage time.

New England (11-15-6), clinging to very slim playoff hopes, controlled possession but couldn't break through against Guzan, who recorded his seventh shutout of the season.

Brad Knighton made two saves and picked up his first shutout in three starts this season.

Atlanta United (15-8-8), which clinched a playoff berth with a win over Philadelphia on Wednesday, picked up a point in its bid to climb the standings and claim a first-round bye. United ran its unbeaten streak to eight while the draw ended the Revolution's six-game home win streak.

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.
