Lee Nguyen scored and New England goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth got his sixth shutout of the season to help the Revolution beat Chivas USA, 1-0, on Saturday.
Nguyen's shot from long range in the 56th minute was his team-leading ninth goal of the season.
He settled a deflected ball that fell to his feet at the top of the box and sent a shot off the hand of Chivas USA goalkeeper Dan Kennedy.
Shuttleworth made several saves for New England (9-12-3) to keep Chivas USA (6-12-6) scoreless for a fifth consecutive match.
Felix Borja's turnaround shot in the 18th minute forced a diving save. Borja also had an open look blocked in the 64th minute.
