MLS Rewind: Revs top NYCFC, Pepi scores again for FC Dallas, and more

By

The New England Revolution didn’t have to wait long to avenge the loss to New York City FC in August that snapped their nine-match unbeaten run, handing NYCFC a loss to solidify their hold on the top spot in the MLS Supporters’ Shield standings.

Tajon Buchanan’s stunning winner helped give the Revs a 2-1 win over NYCFC at Gillette Stadium, helping Bruce Arena’s side maintain their 10-point lead on the Seattle Sounders in the MLS Supporters’ Shield race.

In South Florida, it was Gonzalo Higuain delivering more magic for Inter Miami, which continued its recent surge, defeating the Columbus Crew, 1-0. Higuain pounced on a poorly-timed Josh Williams back-pass and scored to give the Herons their fourth win in five matches.

Ricardo Pepi continued his red-hot run of form, following up his standout performance for the U.S. men’s national team in Wednesday’s win by scoring his latest goal for FC Dallas. Unfortunately, FC Dallas wasn’t able to take all three points at home.
