FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts — Lee Nguyen scored his career-high 18th goal, lifting the New England Revolution to a 1-0 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday night.

The Revolution (17-13-4) tied a team mark for wins in a season. They have won nine of their last 11.

The sequence that led to the only goal began with Jose Goncalves feeding a streaking Chris Tierney down the left wing. The assistant referee initially signaled offsides, but then pulled his flag down. Tierney then passed to Nguyen, who sent a shot past Joe Bendik and into the lower right corner in the 35th minute.

Bendik made a tremendous save moments later on Scott Caldwell's attempt for his first MLS goal.

Bobby Shuttleworth made a leaping punch save in the 75th minute against Luke Moore's header to preserve his eighth shutout of the season.

Toronto fell to 11-15-8.
