TORONTO(AP) -- Chad Barrett scored in the 53rd minute to give
Toronto FC a 1-0 win over New England on Saturday, extending the
Revolution's scoring drought to four games.
Barrett got his third goal of the season on a glancing header
off Sam Cronin's corner kick. Barrett had a chance at a second
in the 72nd minute but sent his lob high.
"It was not the prettiest game you will ever see in your life,"
Toronto coach Preki said. "We're confident in our system, we're
confident in the way we want to play. Sometimes it's not really
pretty, but I'd rather win ugly than lose pretty."
It marked the second straight MLS game - fourth overall
including a friendly and U.S. Open Cup outing - that New England
(2-6-2) failed to score. The Revolution have not won since
beating Toronto in their home opener on April 21, and have been
shut out five times this season in league play.
Toronto (4-4-1) improved to 4-0-0 at home this season despite
playing without leading scorer Dwayne De Rosario - who is with
the Canadian national team in Argentina - suspended defender
Maksim Usanov and the injured Julian de Guzman (hamstring) and
Nana Attakora (hip).
