FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Dimirty Imbongo scored in the 53rd minute and the New England Revolution ended their winless streak at 10 matches with a 2-0 win over the Columbus Crew on Wednesday night.
Imbongo, who got a rare start after Jerry Bengtson was called up with the Honduran national team, slid one into an open net after a Diego Fagundez shot smacked the right post.
The Revolution were handed an insurance goal in the 74th when Crew defender Chad Marshall inadvertently nodded it into his own net.
Matt Reis, who made a pair of acrobatic saves seconds apart from each other in the 86th, stopped a total of three shots to preserve the Revolution's first victory since July 8th.
