FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Revolution (2-6-1, 7 pts.) fell to the Montreal Impact, 3-0, at Gillette Stadium on Wednesday evening. Montreal's Shamit Shome opened the scoring in the 79th minute, followed by a pair of goals from Anthony Jackson-Hamel in the 85th and 93rd minutes.

Goalkeeper Cody Cropper set a single-season career high with six saves in tonight's contest – including a spectacular double save in the 10th minute – giving him 18 stops on the season.
