Guzan tough in goal for Atlanta in 0-0 draw with Revolution

FOXBORO, Mass. - Brad Guzan made five saves, barely deflecting Lee Nguyen's free kick in the 87th minute, to give Atlanta United a 0-0 draw with the New England Revolution on Saturday night.

Nguyen's long kick from the left side curved left, almost fooling Guzan, but the goalkeeper was able to leap and barely punch it into the crossbar. He made another save off a set piece in stoppage time.

New England (11-15-6), clinging to very slim playoff hopes, controlled possession but couldn't break through against Guzan, who recorded his seventh shutout of the season.

Brad Knighton made two saves and picked up his first shutout in three starts this season.

Atlanta United (15-8-8), which clinched a playoff berth with a win over Philadelphia on Wednesday, picked up a point in its bid to climb the standings and claim a first-round bye. United ran its unbeaten streak to eight while the draw ended the Revolution's six-game home win streak.

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.
