FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Kei Kamara and Juan Agudelo each had a goal and an assist to help the New England Revolution beat Sporting Kansas City 3-1 on a rainy Saturday night.

New England (10-14-9) remained in seventh place in the Eastern Conference - two points back of sixth-place Montreal for the final playoff spot. Sporting KC (12-13-7) had its three-game undefeated streak snapped.

Kamara opened the scoring in the fourth minute. Agudelo drew three defenders near the left sideline and he found Kamara wide open in the middle for a breakaway goal. It was Kamara's 11th goal this season, but just his second at Gillette Stadium since being traded from the Columbus Crew in May.

New England took a 2-1 lead in the 75th minute on Kevin Ellis' own goal and Agudelo knocked home Kamara's cross 8 minutes later.

Dominic Dwyer tied it at 1 in the 49th minute for Kansas City when knocked in Ellis' glancing header with his knees.

New England Revolution's Chris Tierney retires after 11 seasons

New England Revolution's Chris Tierney retires after 11 seasons

After 11 seasons with the New England Revolution, Chris Tierney announced his retirement on Thursday.  It marks the end of a special career in club history.  The Wellesley native played his entire MLS career for his hometown team and is the Revs' longest-tenured field player. In franchise history, he ranks third in league appearances, fourth in assists, and second in game-winning helpers.    

The fullback started at least 20 matches for eight straight seasons (2010-2017).  2018 might have been another season of 20-plus starts, but a torn ACL cut his season short on May 30.  

His left foot was lethal.  Over the course of his career, he delivered quite a few highlight reel free kicks.  Brad Friedel will remember the last one he made. Tierney's stoppage-time goal against Colorado helped the first year head coach earn his first win in the second game of the season.  

His most memorable goal may have come in 2014 MLS Cup.  His 79th-minute equalizer pushed the championship match to extra time before Robbie Keane scored the game-winner.
