Mansally's goals lift Revs past United, 2-0

Apr 4, 2010 - 1:47 AM WASHINGTON(AP) -- Substitute Kenny Mansally scored in the 80th and 82nd minutes to help the New England Revolution to a 2-0 victory over D.C. United on Saturday night.

Mansally, who entered in the 68th minute, redirected Chris Tierney's deflected cross past United goalkeeper Troy Perkins to put New England (1-1-0) ahead on just its second shot on goal. He doubled the lead moments later with a deft chip over Perkins' head from 20 yards or so away.

D.C. outshot New England 12-8 in its home opener, but failed to score for the second straight game after a 4-0 loss at Kansas City to open the season.

Chris Pontius missed United's best chance, heading Brandon Barklage's cross high in the 43rd minute. Barklage headed a good chance wide in the 61st minute.
