Sporting KC Coughs Up Game, Chance To Clinch In 2 1 Loss To Houston Dynamo


Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Revolution snapped a five-game losing streak with a 1-0 win over 10-man New York City on Saturday. It wasn't pretty, but it was a much-needed victory for the Revolution.

Ned Grabavoy's red card definitely helped the Revs, but they were also playing with a rotated defense. London Woodberry moved from right-back to center back with Jeremy Hall slotting into Woodberry's regular position. Collectively, the back line conceded just nine shots, per the official MLS website.


Lee Nguyen scored the only goal of the match and had an opportunity to double the lead late in the game, but NYCFC's Josh Saunders made the save. Teal Bunbury and Chris Tierney also had terrific chances, but Saunders thwarted them as well.

New England is still in a playoff spot and looked much more confident on both sides of the pitch. The Revolution moves up to No. 11 after a convincing performance.
