Bengston lifts Revolution to 1-0 win over Fire

Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. (AP) - Forward Jerry Bengtson scored in the 62nd minute, goalkeeper Matt Reis made four saves and the New England Revolution opened their season with a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Fire on Saturday night.

Bengtson headed Kelyn Rowe's floating pass into the right side of the net midway through the 62nd minute. Rowe played the ball from the left side to the breaking Bengston, who connected from 6 yards out. Chicago goalkeeper Sean Johnson argued unsuccessfully that Bengtson was offside.

The Fire dropped to 0-2, having failed to score in 180 minutes of play. They lost their league opener to defending MLS Cup champion Los Angeles last Sunday.
