FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Diego Fagundez scored in the 17th minute -- snapping a 196-minute New England scoreless streak -- and the Revolution held on for a 1-0 win over the Chicago Fire on Saturday. Fagundez took a pass from Kelyn Rowe and scored from 30 yards.

Goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth, dressed in pink for breast cancer awareness month, needed to make just 1 save in his second shutout of the season for New England (8-17-8), which already has been eliminated from playoff contention. Shuttleworth stopped Patrick Nyarko's shot in the 86th off a cross from Alvaro Fernandez.

The Fire (17-11-5) already had clinched a playoff berth.

New England, 2-1 against the Fire this season, was without midfielder Benny Feilhaber, serving a one-game suspension for his red card at Philadelphia on Oct. 6.

New England's Jerry Bengtson, coming off a hat trick for Honduras against Canada on Tuesday as Los Catrachos advanced to the final round of World Cup qualifying, received his first yellow card of the MLS season in the 44th minute for a reckless challenge.
