Revs back in playoff race

MONTREAL – Captain Jose Goncalves’ goal in the 31st minute lifted the New England Revolution to a 1-0 victory over the Montreal Impact yesterday at Stade Saputo. The win propelled the Revs back into playoff and also extended the team’s unbeaten streak to four games (2-0-2).

The win not only pushed New England (12-11-9, 45 pts.) into fifth place in the Eastern Conference, but also lifted the Revs to within one point of fourth place.

On the game-winning goal, Goncalves found himself all alone on the back post as Diego Fagundez whipped in a cross from the right wing that deflected off Juan Agudelo. Goncalves, running in on the back post, then blasted the loose ball with a left-footed shot to stake the Revs to a 1-0 lead.

The Revs’ defense took care of the rest as the team posted their league-high 13th team shutout and limited Montreal to just eight shots, including a lone shot on goal.

Matt Reis was forced to make one key save in the 41st minute to keep his team in front. MLS’ leading goal-scorer, Marco Di Vaio, found himself just outside the six-yard box with the ball on his foot, but his right-footed shot was denied by Reis as the Revs took a 1-0 lead into the half.
