Union's Playoff Hopes Take Hit In 1-0 Loss To Revolution
CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Diego Fagundez became the youngest player to score 25 career MLS goals and the New England Revolution beat the Philadelphia Union 1-0 on Saturday for their third straight victory.
Fagundez, who is 20 years, 6 months, 15 days old, signed with the Revolution on Nov. 15, 2010, and is in his fifth MLS season.
The Revolution (10-9-7) scored in the 51st minute when Charlie Davies flicked a leading pass to Fagundez, who drove to the top of the area and cut it back inside the left post.
Referee Chris Penso showed Cristian Maidana a red card for violent conduct in the 94th minute.
The Union (7-13-6) missed an opportunity to move into an Eastern Conference playoff position, starting the game one point behind three teams tied for the sixth and final slot.
