New England Revolution snaps skid, blanks Chicago Fire, 2-0

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Diego Fagundez scored from the top of the penalty area and the New England Revolution got goals two minutes apart to start the second half in beating the Chicago Fire 2-0 Saturday night.

New England is unbeaten in its last 19 MLS home games, but the win is the first for New England (6-4-6) in its past seven games. With the victory New England trails Eastern Conference leader DC United by four points.

After playing a goalless first half, the Revolution won a corner kick in the 48th minute. Chris Tierney sent the ball to the front edge of the 6-yard box, but Andy Dorman's header floated high toward a wide-open Fagundez. His hard shot went inside the far post for the winning goal.

Two minutes later, Fagundez played a free kick to Teal Bunbury at the top of the 18-yard box. Bunbury fired wide toward the far post and Charlie Davies got his head on the shot to redirect it in.

Losers now of three straight, the Fire (4-8-2) have yet to win on the road this season. The Fire are tied with New York City FC and Montreal for last place in the Eastern Conference.
