On Friday night the New England Revolution behind first-half goals from Adam Cristman and Steve Ralston beat F.C. Dallas 2-1. Cristman scored his third goal of the season in the fifth minute, sending a diving header into the left corner off Sainey Nyassi’s cross from the right wing.
Ralston scored his second goal of the season in the 22nd minute on a penalty kick to help the Eastern Conference-leading New England (7-3-2) extend its unbeaten streak to five matches. New England midfielder Jeff Larentowicz was flagrantly fouled by Dallas defender Drew Moor in the penalty box area and Ralston converted the free shot to the lower right corner past goalkeeper Ray Burse.
