The New England Revolution collected their first home win of 2020 when they defeated the Montreal Impact 3-1.

The first half looked like a typical Revolution game with the team struggling in front of goal. Henry Kessler changed that when he scored during first half stoppage time. The rookie brought down a failed clearance before rifling home a right-footed shot.

Gustavo Bou scored soon after the break to give the Revs a two-goal lead. The Designated Player fought through traffic to score his first goal since Aug. 25.

Diego Fagundez scored his first goal of the season just two minutes after entering in the 65th minute. Tajon Buchanan earned an assist with his well-timed pass.

Substitute Cristian Penilla looked eager to etch his name onto the scoresheet. He made a couple of bids that were destined for goal if not for Clement Diop.

Unfortunately for the Revs, the Impact denied them of a shutout by scoring a late consolation goal. Lassi Lappalainen put one past Matt Turner, who made three saves on the night.

The Revs will now turn their focus to D.C. United, who they face at Audi Field on Sept. 27.
