Lopez Scores In Galaxy’s 1-0 Victory Over Revs
FOXBOROUGH (AP) – Miguel Lopez scored in the 69th minute on a header off David Beckham’s pass in the Major League Soccer-leading Los Angeles Galaxy’s 1-0 victory over the New England Revolution on Saturday night.
Los Angeles (8-2-5) extended its winning streak to four games and its shutout string to 321 minutes with its second victory in its last 10 matches (2-6-2) at Gillette Stadium.
New England (3-5-4) was shut out for the fifth time this season.
A season-high crowd of 21,793 attended the game.
Beckham’s pass from 40 yards out on the right flank set up Lopez for his first goal of the season. Lopez flicked a header from just inside the penalty box to the far left corner past goalkeeper Matt Reis.
Beckham has seven assists this season.
Los Angeles didn’t allow a shot on goal in Donovan Ricketts’ sixth shutout of the season.
