             === Soares leaves it late for the Revs in Montreal ===
 
 Montreal,  QC (Sports  Network)  - The  New England  Revolution  closed out  a
 disappointing  season on a high note on Saturday as a goal from A.J. Soares in
 the  88th minute made  the difference in a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact at
 Saputo Stadium.
 
 Montreal  created the better chances in the match but was unable to find a way
 past  goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth, and the Revs made the most of a set piece
 opportunity in the final minutes to close out their campaign with back-to-back
 wins.
 
 The Impact, meanwhile, ends its season without a win in the final six games.
 
 A  good performance  from Shuttleworth kept the match scoreless into the final
 few  minutes, and a  free kick from Chris Tierney was swung into the middle of
 the  penalty area  for Soares, who got  his head on the ball and redirected it
 beyond the reach of goalkeeper Troy Perkins.
 
 The  final chance  for the home side  to take something from the match came in
 stoppage time when Marco Di Vaio had a shot from near the penalty spot stopped
 by Shuttleworth, preserving the win and his clean sheet.
