FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Diego Fagundez ended New England's scoreless streak at 539 minutes and the Revolution beat the Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Saturday night.

New England (2-3-2) scored a goal in its season opener, but did not put the ball in the net in five-plus matches thereafter, having been credited with an "own goal" last week in a match last week at New York.

The 18-year old Fagundez gave the Revolution into the lead in the 61st minute, finishing off an exchange of well-executed passes from Lee Nguyen to Kelyn Rowe.

Nguyen made it 2-0 in the 71st minute, initiating the sequence with a run into the penalty box, and finishing off a rebound of a shot taken by Saer Sene.

New England snapped a five-game (0-3-2) winless streak and an eight-game (0-5-3) winless streak against Philadelphia. The Union (3-3-2) had its three-game (1-0-2) unbeaten streak snapped, being held scoreless for the first time in eight games this season.

Philadelphia, 2-2-1 on the road this season with seven goals, had its best scoring chances in the first half in final 5 minutes. Michael Farfan had a point-blank shot tipped over the net by goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth in the 40th minute, and Danny Cruz had a goal-mouth shot smothered in the 45th minute.

Then in the 85th minute, Jack McInerney had a partial breakaway bid knocked away by Shuttleworth, who recorded his second shutout of the season.
