Kaka scores twice, Orlando City rolls past Revolution, 6-1

ORLANDO, Fla. - Kaka had two goals, Yoshimar Yotun and Dominic Dwyer each had a goal and two assists and struggling Orlando City beat short-handed New England 6-1 on Wednesday night.

Xavier Kouassi was sent off for the Revolution with a red card in the 11th minute after he fouled Seb Hines. Kouassi won the ball, but his follow through went into Hines' legs and the referee went to the video to deem the foul serious.

Yotun then assisted on goals for Antonio Nocerino in the 22nd minute and Hines 10 minutes later. Kaka scored in the 43rd and 77th off assists from Dwyer. Dwyer scored in the 84th minute, and Yotun in the 90th.

Orlando (10-13-8) had just one win in its previous 11 matches. It is 2-4-4 in its last 10 home games.

Lee Nguyen scored his 11th goal on a brilliant free kick in first-half stopped time for New England (11-14-5), which has allowed 28 goals in losing its last eight road games. The Revolution are in eighth place, five points below the line.

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.
