Revolution beat Earthquakes 2-0, snap 3-game skid
FOXBORO, Mass. (AP)—Saer Sene and Dimitry Imbongo each scored their second goals of the season and the New England Revolution snapped a three-match winless stretch with a 2-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.
New England (6-5-6) was winless in its last three outings (0-1-2) and snapped a five-match (0-4-1) winless streak against San Jose (5-9-6) before 13,732 at Gillette Stadium.
New England midfielder Lee Nguyen set up both goals, creating Sene’s goal in the 13th minute, a 25-yard blast from atop the penalty box area, then making a pass from atop the right corner of the penalty box to create Imbongo’s goal, a sliding touch, in the 78th minute.
San Jose is 1-8-2 on the road this season, being outscored 21-7. The Earthquakes played with leading scorer Chris Wondolowski, who is on duty with the U.S. national team.
New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth had to make just two saves for his eighth shutout of the season and faced just two corner kicks. San Jose’s best chances to score came on a shot by Alan Gordon in the 13th minute that slipped just wide of the right goalpost; a drive by Walter Martinez in the 54th minute and Sam Cronin’s right-footed drive in the 69th minute, the latter two forcing saves.
New England, 4-2-3 at home this season, dominated the first half of play with 11 shots and four corner kicks, while San Jose did not have a shot and just one corner kick.
