HOUSTON (AP) — Diego Fagundez scored and Houston added an own goal in the New England Revolution’s 2-0 victory over the Dynamo on Saturday night.

New England (3-4-4), unbeaten in four of its last five games, took a 1-0 lead in the 51st minute on Fagundez’s goal. Off a give-and-go from Clyde Simms at the top of the box, Fagundez weaved through Houston’s defenders and sent a shot inside the far post from the penalty area.

The lead was extended to 2-0 in the 84th on an own goal. After Chris Tierney’s shot was deflected by Houston goalkeeper Tally Hall, Adam Moffat headed it up, but Juan Agudelo gained possession outside the left goalkeeper’s box. Agudelo’s shot deflected off Ricardo Clark and got over the end line before Moffat could clear it again.
