Kheli Dube goal helps Revs top Dynamo, snap 5-game winless streak

HOUSTON (AP) -- Kheli Dube scored in the 73rd minute to lead the

New England Revolution to a 2-1 win over the Houston Dynamo on

Sunday night.

The win ended a five-game winless streak for New England

(8-15-5) and snapped Houston's two-game unbeaten streak.

Dube got a cross from Ilija Stolica from the left and put a

one-timer by Houston goalkeeper Pat Onstad from 10 yards to give

New England the 2-1 lead.

Dominic Oduro tied the score in the 60th minute on a one-timer

from 8 yards on the left after getting a cross from Richard

Mulrooney and nailing it into the net.

Shalrie Joseph gave the Revolution a 1-0 lead in the 43rd minute

after getting a pass from Emmanuel Osei in the box, dribbling it

to the right and then firing it past Onstad and into the left

net.

Oduro nearly tied things in first-half stoppage time, but his

shot from 10 yards in the middle of the box was stopped by a

diving Bobby Shuttleworth.

Houston (7-15-6) finished the game two men down after

second-half sub Joseph Ngwenya was given a straight red card in

second-half stoppage for a hard tackle, and Geoff Cameron was

given a straight red for a forearm to the face of Jason

Griffiths later in second-half stoppage.
