Ruiz, Valdes Score To Lead Union Over Revs 3-0
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Carlos Ruiz and Carlos Valdes each scored within a 13-minute span early in the first half to lead the Philadelphia Union to a 3-0 win over the New England Revolution on Sunday night.
Philadelphia (8-4-7) completed its recent three-match road trip unbeaten (1-0-2), extending its unbeaten streak to five matches (2-0-3) and overtaking New York for first place in the Eastern Conference with two matches in hand.
New England (3-9-7), which extended its winless streak to nine (0-6-3), hasn’t won since May 14. The Revolution have scored just seven goals during their winless streak and have scored one goal or less in 16 matches.
