Report: Revolution part ways with head coach Jay Heaps

The New England Revolution have fired head coach Jay Heaps, according to Ives Galarcep of Goal USA.

The decision to move on from Heaps comes after two straight losses, one of which was a 7-0 defeat at the hands of Atlanta United.

Heaps has been the Revs head coach since 2011 and compiled a 75-81-43 regular season record. He also led them to the MLS Cup Final in 2014 where they lost to the LA Galaxy.

The Revs are currently 10-14-5 with five games remaining in the season. Galarcep says there is "no word yet" on who will replace Heaps.

Heaps played for the organization from 2001-2009.

Revs fall 2-0 to D.C. United, extending winless streak to seven

WASHINGTON -- Luciano Acosta scored early and Zoltan Stieber added a late goal to help D.C. United win its third in a row, 2-0 over the 10-man New England Revolution on Sunday night.

Acosta opened the scoring for United (7-9-6) in the 13th minute, finishing Paul Arriola's cross with a left-footed shot that got through with a deflection off the goalkeeper.

New England (7-9-8) went down a man in the 73rd minute when Scott Caldwell was shown his second yellow card, both for unsporting behavior.

Stieber made it 2-0 in the 89th minute on a breakaway sprung by Junior Moreno's long ball up the middle.

D.C. United is 5-1-2 since opening Audi Field on July 14. The Revs are winless in their last seven and have lost five of the last six.

Picault, Elliott help Union beat Revolution 3-2

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Fabrice-Jean Picault scored on a penalty kick and Jack Elliott had his first career multi-goal game to help the Philadelphia Union beat the New England Revolution 3-2 on Saturday night.

Picault converted from the spot in the 76th minute, after New England's Antonio Delamea was called for a hand ball in the area, to give Philadelphia (9-11-3) a 3-2 lead.

Elliott, a 22-year-old defender who came in with one career goal, opened the scoring in the 14th minute. After Cory Burke's header, off a cross by C.J. Sapong, ricocheted off the post, Picault's shot from the top-left corner of the area was tapped over the crossbar by goalkeeper Matt Turner. Following the ensuing corner kick, Elliott back-heeled an entry from Haris Medunjanin into a wide-open net.

Elliott made it 2-0 when Picault's long-range bounced off the post and then deflected off the back of a diving Turner directly to Elliott for the tap in from point-blank range in the 24th.

New England's Andrew Farrell first-timed a left-footer, which deflected off a defender, in the opening seconds of the second half to make it 2-1 and Wilfried Zahibo's header, off a free kick by Diego Fagundez, tied it a 2 in the 64th minute.

New England (7-8-8) is winless in its last six games.
