Penilla has goal, assist in Revs’ 2-0 win over Orlando City
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Cristian Penilla and Diego Fagundez scored second-half goals to help the New England Revolution beat Orlando City 2-0 on Saturday night.
The Revolution were eliminated from the playoff contention shortly before kickoff with D.C. United’s 1-0 victory over FC Dallas.
Penilla made it 1-0 in the 51st minute for the Revs (9-12-11) with a low hard shot from outside the box that deflected slightly off a defender before landing in the right corner of the goal. It was Penilla’s team-leading 12th goal of the season.
Fagundez eased home Penilla’s cross with a left-footed, waist-high stab to double the lead in the 55th minute.

Orlando City (7-20-4) is scoreless in its last five games and winless over the last 12.
