FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (April 1, 2016) – The New York Red Bulls fell to the New England Revolution, 1-0, on Friday night at Gillette Stadium. The Revolution’s Diego Fagundez scored in the 55th minute; while the Red Bulls were reduced to 10 men after Felipe was shown a straight red card in the 61st minute.

New England scored in the 55th minute, with Diego Fagundez finishing a cross from former Red Bull Juan Agudelo.

Felipe was shown red after a challenge on New England’s Kelyn Rowe minutes later.

Bradley Wright-Phillips had two quality chances in the second half, a partial breakaway in the 60th minute, and a close-range opportunity after a corner kick in the 81st, but New England’s Bobby Shuttleworth was there both times. Shuttleworth made six saves on the night.
