Rowe scores 2 goals as Revolution beat Union 5-1
Diego Fagundez and Juan Agudelo also scored for New England (10-9-6) and the Revolution benefited from an own goal by Philadelphia’s Amobi Okugo. The Revolution got their second straight win and pulled into a tie with Houston for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Danny Cruz scored for the Union (10-8-8). Philadelphia, coming off back-to-back shutout victories, lost for just the second time in seven matches.
Rowe put the Revolution on the scoreboard in the 26th minute on a low shot from 25 yards out.
Okugo’s own goal put New England ahead for good in the 58th, and Rowe’s second goal—from 30 yards out—stretched the lead to 3-1 just seven minutes later.
Fagundez made it a three-goal lead in the 71st with his team-leading eighth of the season, and Agudelo capped the scoring in the 73rd.
Okugo’s night ended before the final whistle when he picked up a second caution and red card in stoppage time.
Union leading scorer Jack McInerney was benched as coach John Hackworth went with a one-striker formation that utilized Casey up top.
