MLS Snapshot: Toronto FC 1-3 New England Revolution

0 Comments

The game in 100 words (or less): The Revolution remained red-hot today with a big 3-1 win away from home against Toronto FC. New England took advantage of an early own goal and kept Sebastian Giovinco off the scoresheet as the Revs have now won five straight. They are undefeated in seven matches and continue to creep up towards the top of the standings in the Eastern Conference. The only disappointing aspect of this match is that New England conceded a goal for the first time in over a month.

Three moments that mattered

4′ — Perquis OG gives Revs early lead — New England got a gift just four minutes into the match when Damien Perquis put one in his own net. Teal Bunbury rolled a cross through the box, but as Perquis tracked back he hit it right into the goal to give the Revs an early lead.

39′ — Fagundez makes it 2-0 before the break — Diego Fagundez doubled the visitors’ lead with a great shot from the top of the box. The winger bent a ball across his body into the side netting to put Toronto in a two-goal hole heading into halftime.

55′ — Findley snaps New England’s shutout streak — Enteriing today, the last time the Revolution conceded a goal was on August 1. That was until Robbie Findley got his head onto a cross from Justin Morrow, snapping the streak at 340 minutes.
