MONTREAL - Kai Kamara scored in the first minute and Kelyn Rowe added two goals to help the New England Revolution beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Saturday night.

The Revolution (9-12-9), who lost to Dallas in the U.S. Open Cup final this week, posted a third straight win in Major League Soccer play with only their second road victory of the season. New England moved two points behind fifth-place Montreal in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Didier Drogba scored on a penalty for Montreal (9-9-4), which has only one win in seven games. Perhaps more alarmingly, the Impact are 0-3-1 and have conceded 11 goals in their last four home games.

The New England Revolution and Chelsea Football Club announced Thursday they will both participate in the March of the Living in Poland on May 2. The event is held annually in remembrance of the Holocaust. 10,000 people are expected to march from Auschwitz to Birkenau. 

Revs president Brian Bilello and team ambassador Charlie Davies are among the participants from New England. 

“The New England Revolution are honored to join the March of the Living this year to recognize the legacy of those who lost their lives in the Holocaust,” said Bilello. “With prejudice and hate crimes on the rise, we feel it’s important to use our voice to help combat discrimination of any kind and we are proud to partner with Chelsea to help promote equality and tolerance.”

After the march, Chelsea and the Revs will meet in Foxboro for a charity match on May 15. Proceeds will go towards projects promoting equality and tolerance.

Revolution not changing approach despite busy upcoming MLS schedule

The New England Revolution have a busy scheduling coming up with three Major League Soccer matches over the next nine days, beginning Saturday night with a showdown against New York Red Bulls.

The Revolution have struggled over the first two months of the 2019 season and enter this weekend at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings with a 1-1-5 record. Despite the tough schedule ahead, Revs coach Brad Friedel is making sure his players stay focused and not look ahead.

"Because of the situation that we're in with recent results, we are well and truly focused on New York. I don't think we have the luxury right now to be looking forward," Friedel said Thursday on 98.5 The Sports Hub show "Zolak and Bertrand." "We've got to look at what's in front of us. We've got to be far more resilient at the back. We have to get our first clean sheet of the season.

"We have to build on that, and then hopefully the goals will come. Then, hopefully after three points against New York, then we can focus on Montreal. It's a one-game-at-a-time (mentality) right now."

Here's a snapshot of New England's results so far, along with a look at what lies ahead.

The Revolution have a good opportunity to pick up some much-needed points in the standings during this stretch. New York Red Bulls also are struggling out of the gate with a 1-2-3 record, and Sporting Kansas City is seventh in the Western Conference at 2-3-1. The Montreal Impact are third in the East at 3-2-2. 

The Revs' attack must improve ASAP if they're going to start a climb up the standings. New England has had trouble generating offense all season with just five goals scored through seven games. Atlanta United F.C. (four goals) is the only team in MLS with fewer goals scored.
