FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Lee Nguyen and Kei Kamara scored, and the New England Revolution beat the Columbus Crew 3-1 on Saturday night to stop a three-game losing streak.

Nguyen opened the scoring in the third minute for the Revs (5-7-7). He chest-trapped a failed clearance and volleyed it into the upper-left corner for his fifth goal of the season.

A pair of Crew defenders inadvertently ran into each other in the 71st minute, creating a wide-open look which Kei Kamara easily finished to cap the scoring against his former team.

Columbus’ Will Trapp scored an own goal on a botched clearance attempt that gave the Revolution a 2-0 lead in the 34th minute.

The Crew (3-7-7) got on the board in the 42nd minute when Ola Kamara scored his eighth goal in 11 games.
