Final Score: Toronto FC 1, New England 0

Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Chad Barrett scored early in the second half as Toronto FC edged the New England Revolution 1-0 on Saturday to win its fourth game in as many matches at BMO Field this season.

Toronto (4-4-1) earned its first road result of the season last weekend with a 0-0 draw at the unbeaten Los Angeles Galaxy, and followed with another victory at home.

TFC goalie Stefan Frei made four saves for his second straight shutout.

New England (2-6-2), which hasn't won since April 10 when it beat Toronto 4-1, lost for the fifth time in its last seven and is winless during that stretch.

Toronto survived a few early chances from New England, the first when defender Adrian Cann cleared a shot from Sainey Nyassi off the line and the second when Frei deflected a close-range volley from Kheli Dube.

Barrett, who was denied earlier on a one-on-one against goalie Preston Burpo, had Toronto's second good chance of the opening 15 minutes but fired high from the edge of the six-yard box.

Neither side created more opportunities as strong as the early chances and the match went to halftime scoreless.

Toronto took the lead eight minutes into the second half, when Barrett reached a corner kick from Sam Cronin to head in his third goal of the season. Barrett ran to the edge of the six-yard box and jumped in front of Pat Phelan to meet the pass, and directed it past Burpo.

Barrett had another chance in the 72nd, but chipped over the bar from the edge of the area as TFC failed to cushion its lead entering the last 15 minutes.

New England's Shalrie Joseph, who returned from a five-match absence, headed over the crossbar deep in stoppage time on the Revolution's best look late in the game.

Toronto visits the San Jose Earthquakes on May 29, when New England hosts Red Bull New York.
