FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Taylor Twellman scored in the 64th minute to help New England beat the New York Red Bulls 1-0 on Saturday night, sending the Revolution to the MLS Eastern Conference final for the sixth straight season.
After opening the two-game, total-goals series with a 0-0 tie last weekend in East Rutherford, N.J., the Revolution finished off the Red Bulls at home to set up the conference final against the Chicago Fire.
With the victory, New England extended its unbeaten streak against New York to 10 matches (7-0-3) and pushed its playoff unbeaten streak to 12 (8-0-4).
The first half was played in driving rain and strong wind.
New York lost scoring leader Juan Pablo Angel to a concussion in the 56th minute after a collision with Revolution defender Jay Heaps.
Twellman ran down the left wing and converted a cross from MLS assists leader Steve Ralston for New England's goal. Twellman's one-touch shot was initially handled by goalkeeper Jon Conway, but he was unable to control the ball.
Red Bulls midfielder Joe Vide barged in, attempting to clear the ball off of the goal line, but momentum carried the ball into the net.
