Diego Fagundez scores twice, Revolution top 10-man NYC 2-1

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Diego Fagundez scored two goals in the second half and the New England Revolution beat 10-man New York City FC 2-1 on Sunday.

New England (12-15-6) set a club record with 12 wins at home. NYC (16-9-8) had several possibilities to clinch a bye in the playoffs but needed at least a draw.

Fagundez opened the scoring in the 51st minute and made it 2-0 in the second minute of stoppage time with his sixth goal of the season. Andrew Farrell set up the first goal by dribbling into the area and finding Fagundez at the top of the box. It was his first goal since June 3. Fagundez's next goal was a tap-in after his breakaway shot was knocked back to him.

Khiry Shelton scored for NYC in the third minute of extra time by getting past the defense for a long ball and heading it in.

NYC's Jack Harrison was shown a straight red card in the 26th minute for a late challenge on Teal Bunbury. It was Harrison's first red card of his professional career and he'll miss the regular-season finale against Columbus Crew SC next weekend.

Revolution can't complete comeback, fall to Minnesota United FC, 2-1

MINNEAPOLIS - Christian Ramirez and Darwin Quintero scored first-half goals and Minnesota United held off the New England Revolution 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Ramirez opened the scoring in the fifth minute. He was first to a misplaced defensive header and chipped it over goalkeeper Matt Turner.

Quintero made it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time with his eighth goal of the season. The Colombian designated player gathered a loose ball at the top of the 18-yard box, dribbled through four defenders and sent in a shot from a difficult angle.

Diego Fagundez got New England to 2-1 in the 52nd minute on a penalty kick. The Revs were without forward Cristian Penilla, who has eight goals and five assists, after he received a red card against the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Galaxy score twice in stoppage time, beat Revs 3-2

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Chris Pontius scored twice, including the go-ahead goal in the 93rd minute, and the 10-man the Los Angeles Galaxy rallied with two stoppage-time goals to beat the 10-man New England Revolution 3-2 on Saturday night.

Dave Romney made it 2-all for the Galaxy (8-7-4) with a header to finish Romain Alessandrini's corner in the 92nd minute.

The Revolution (7-5-7) spent most of the game down a man, but took a 2-1 lead on Luis Caicedo's goal late in the first half and held that edge until the Galaxy's late outburst.

The Revs' Cristian Penilla was sent off in the 23rd minute for kicking back at Alessandrini after getting knocked to the ground.

Diego Fagundez opened the scoring five minutes later for New England and Pontius scored his first goal in the 38th minute for LA.

Ashley Cole was shown his second yellow card in the 85th minute and was sent off for the Galaxy.

The Galaxy's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic was held out to rest.
