MONTREAL — Kelyn Rowe scored in stoppage time to give the New England Revolution a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Impact on Sunday in their regular-season finale.

The Revolution carried an 18-game road winless streak into the game, including 0-13-3 this season.


Rowe put a shot from 30 yards out just under the bar behind goalkeeper Max Crepeau moments after Montreal’s Matteo Mancosu had tied it with a 90th-minute goal.

Midfielder Diego Fagundez opened the scoring for the Revolution, knocking in a rebound in the 19th minute. Montreal’s Patrice Bernier tied the game just before the half on a penalty kick after a handball by Benjamin Angoua inside the 18-yard box.

Shortly after the start of the second half, Fagundez intercepted a pass and threaded a pass to Krisztian Németh, who converted a shot from inside the 18-yard box to put the Revolution back in front.

The Impact tied the game in the 90th minute when Mancosu’s low shot beat goalkeeper Brad Knighton.

In stoppage time, Rowe fired a shot from beyond the 18-yard box to stun Crépeau.
