Final Score: Toronto FC 1, New England 0
Foxborough, MA (Sports Network) - Luis Silva scored early in the first half as Toronto FC defeated the New England Revolution, 1-0, on Saturday at Gillette Stadium for its first back-to-back wins in MLS this season.
Toronto (4-11-4) beat Vancouver Whitecaps FC, 3-2, on Wednesday. Over its last 10 matches, TFC - which lost its first nine fixtures - has four wins and four ties against just two losses.
New England (6-8-4) had its five-match unbeaten streak snapped, as it lost for the first time at home since a 2-1 setback to D.C. United on April 14.
TFC built on its last-minute win over Vancouver as Silva deposited a pass from Danny Koevermans to the lower right less than 10 minutes into the game against New England.
Koevermans, who notched his first assist of the season, fired wide of the post in the 14th as Toronto missed a chance to extend its lead.
New England played well after it settled down, but when Shalrie Joseph slotted the ball into the net late in the match with his hand - a goal that was called back - it was the closest the Revolution came to earning a point.
Both clubs return to action Wednesday as Toronto hosts the Colorado Rapids and New England visits the Montreal Impact.
