Apr. 07, 2018
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Andrew Farrell scored his first career Major League Soccer goal in 164 appearances and the New England Revolution eased past the 10-man Montreal Impact 4-0 on Friday night.
New England (3-1-1) extended its home unbeaten streak to 11 matches. Montreal (2-3-0) has lost five straight in the series.
It took just seven minutes for New England to take advantage of Montreal's first-half send off. Wilfried Zahibo sent a long pass over the defense and Teal Bunbury settled it with his chest for a calm finish inside the far post in the 20th minute.
Farrell, a defenseman selected No. 1 overall in 2013 MLS SuperDraft, made it 2-0 in first-half stoppage time by finishing a deflected ball. Diego Fagundez, who had penalty kick blocked in the 36th minute, scored his third goal of the season in the 71st and Wilfried Zahibo had his first MLS goal nine minutes later.
Montreal midfielder Saphir Taider received a straight red card in the 13th for studs-up contact with Luis Caicedo.
