Lewis scores in stoppage time, NYCFC beats Revolution, 2-1

NEW YORK - Jonathan Lewis scored in stoppage time to help New York City FC beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Sunday for its third straight victory.

The 20-year-old rookie has scored his only two MLS goals in back-to-back games.

Villa trapped a long cross from RJ Allen on the left side and dropped it to Ben Sweat, who first-timed a left footer to Lewis at the top of the 6-yard box for the finish in the fourth minute of injury time.

Teal Bunbury put away a rebound to open the scoring for New England (8-11-5) in the 57th minute. Andrew Farrell's shot from distance backed up goalkeeper Sean Johnson against the goal line, where he spilled the stop and Bunbury scored from point-blank range. It was his fifth goal in the last five games. Villa tied it for NYC (14-7-4) in the 77th with his MLS-leading 19th goal.

The Revolution are winless in their last 14 road games, a franchise record.

New England Revolution's slow start continues with 2-0 loss to FC Cincinnati

FOXBORO -- Kekuta Manneh and Kenny Saief each scored on Sunday as FC Cincinnati beat the New England Revolution 2-0.

Manneh tapped in Saief's centering pass in the 44th minute and Saief redirected Manneh's pass across the goal in the 65th.

Cincinnati (2-1-1) extended its unbeaten streak to three games. New England (0-3-1) has lost 2-0 in both of its home games this season.

Cincinnati goalkeeper Spencer Richey made two key saves in the 61st on New England's best scoring chances. New England goalkeeper Brad Knighton made a diving save of Emmanuel Ledesma's free kick at the top of the box late in the first half.

DeJuan Jones, the 11th overall selection in the 2019 SuperDraft, made his MLS debut as a second-half substitute for New England.

Revs' Andrew Farrell feels 'great' after early return from eye injury

Revs' Andrew Farrell feels 'great' after early return from eye injury

Andrew Farrell appears no worse for wear after returning to action ahead of schedule.

The New England Revolution defender is back training with the team just five weeks after rupturing his left retina during a preseason training session when a deflected ball hit him in the eye.

That's three weeks ahead of his initial April 7 return date, but Farrell says he's fully ready to go.

"It's good, all clear. 100 percent. Feel great," Farrell said earlier this week after a training session. "Happy to be back in full training with the team, being involved with the guys and looking forward to this weekend."

Farrell traveled with the team to Toronto last Sunday, and while he didn't play, there's a chance he returns this Sunday at home against FC Cincinnati.

Even if the 26-year-old doesn't see game action, he's still happy to be on the pitch ahead of schedule.

"It was crazy, because the doctor first said April 7 was the date," Farrell added. "So, we were just going in for a check up to see how it was progressing. They said the eye was looking great. They couldn't see the rupture anymore and there was limited-to-no bleeding or blood spots left. They were like, yeah we don't see why you wouldn't be able to join the group."

The Revs could use Farrell's help, as they're winless (0-2-1) through three games.
