Revolution top Toronto FC for fifth straight MLS victory
TORONTO (AP) — Diego Fagundez scored for the third straight game and Lee Nguyen set up two goals to help the New England Revolution beat Toronto FC 3-1 on Sunday for their fifth straight Major League Soccer victory.
New England has outscored its opposition 13-2 during the winning streak. It also has a seven-game unbeaten streak.
Fifth-place Toronto dropped six points behind fourth-place New England in the Eastern Conference.
New England took a 2-0 lead in the first half on Fagundez's goal and an own goal from Toronto defender Damien Perquis.
Robbie Findley scored for Toronto early in the second half, ending New England's 340-minute shutout streak. Kelyn Rowe completed the scoring in the 71st minute.
In Orlando, Adrian Winter scored his first two MLS goals as Kaka-less Orlando City beat Sporting Kansas City 3-1 to end a six-game winless streak.
Winter, acquired by expansion Orlando City on July 29, put away a free kick — which he won — from Luke Boden on a header from the top left of the box to the bottom-right corner in the third minute. He also scored in the 71st, and Bryan Rochez also had a goal.
Krisztian Nemeth scored for Sporting KC.
