Teal Bunbury scored his 8th goal of the season
Teal Bunbury scored his eighth goal in the last ten games to lift the New England Revolution to a 2-1 win over the New York Red Bulls on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium.

Of Bunbury’s eight goals, five of them are game winners, the most in the MLS this season.

“I’m going out there trying to work for my team. Whatever it takes, goals, working hard, pumping guys up. That’s my method,” said Bunbury after the match.

With the win, the Revolution improve to 6-4-4 on the season.

Trailing 1-0 in the first half, New England’s Diego Fagundez found the back of the net in stoppage time of the first half to tie the match at one.

The game would remain tied until Bunbury scored in the 78th minute to give the Revolution a 2-1 lead and the win.

The victory marks the Revolution’s first comeback victory of the 2018 season.

They are now 1-4-2 when giving up the first goals.

"Really happy again, with the character that the players showed, going a goal down, especially so early. [We] stuck to the plan. We’ve had three games this week. Everybody knows that we talk about fitness and we have been from day one. Our team is very capable of playing three-game weeks," said Revolution head coach Brad Friedel.
