July 8, 2012 at 9:58 PM

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., July 8 (UPI) -- Lee Nguyen scored early and Jerry Bengtson added a late tally Sunday in the New England Revolution's 2-0 victory over Red Bull New York.

Nguyen netted his third goal of the season in the 24th minute when Chris Tierney found him with a pass at the top of the area. The Revs midfielder then curled a shot around a pair of defenders to land inside the left post.

Honduran Bengtson, who joined New England this week, came off the bench to double the advantage on a rebound in the 84th and the Revolution (6-7-4) stretched its unbeaten streak to five matches.

New York (9-5-4), meanwhile, remained winless streak at Gillette Stadium since 2002, a span of 17 contests.
