Revolution shut out for second straight game, fall to 0-2
CHESTER, Pa. – Sebastien Le Toux scored in the 31st minute, lifting the Philadelphia Union to a 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution yesterday.
Le Toux received a crossing pass from Leo Fernandes and sent the ball past goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth.
Fernandes was a last-minute replacement for Union captain and midfielder Brian Carroll, who was scratched just before the game because of an illness.
The Union were coming off a 1-1 draw at Portland in their opener. Philadelphia improved to 4-0-2 against New England at PPL Park.
The Revolution was shut out for the second straight game. They began the season with a 4-0 loss at Houston and will play four of their first five games on the road.
New England’s best chance to score came in the 38th minute when Diego Fagundez had a clean look from about 10 yards out. But goalkeeper Zac MacMath made the save.
The Union played without injured starters Conor Casey (calf) and Sheanon Williams (quad).
