The New England Revolution closed their 2018 season with a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.

“The first half was not acceptable. We spoke a lot with the players this week in training and they changed their attitudes very, very well. I think it was a very good thing that they did to at least send our fans home with a very good performance against a team that needed to get into the playoffs. So, I thought we bossed the game from the beginning to the end,” said Revolution head coach Brad Friedel after the game.

The Revs finish the season with a record of 10-13-11 overall, while Montreal finishes with a record of 14-16-4 overall.

With the score tied a zero late in the second half, Diego Fagundez found the back of the net in the 74th minute to put New England up 1-0.

Fagundez became the youngest player in MLS history to score 50 regular season goals.

At 23 years and 254 days old, Fagundez becomes only the third player in league history to score 50 regular season goals before his 25th birthday, joining Landon Donovan (24 years, 175 days) and Carlos Ruiz (24 years, 341 days).

Revolution goaltender Matt Turner made four saves and anchored the team to a shutout in his first start since Sept. 1.

The Revolution finishes the season with six clean sheets, including back-to-back shutouts at home to close out the campaign.
