              === Fagundez scores twice as Revs smash Sounders ===
 
 Foxborough, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Diego Fagundez scored his first two goals
 of the season on Sunday in the first half as the New England Revolution slowed
 streaking Seattle Sounders FC, 5-0, at Gillette Stadium.
 
 Seattle  entered the match having won its last five games, but it took only 14
 minutes for the Revs to take the lead through Patrick Mullins.
 
 The  hosts then added three more goals in the opening 45 minutes before an own
 goal  from Seattle's Chad Marshall in the first minute of the second half made
 it 5-0.
 
 New  England not  only ended Seattle's winning run, but the team continued one
 of its own, notching a fourth win in its last five contests.
 
 The  opening  goal arrived after  Teal Bunbury's  shot was saved by goalkeeper
 Stefan Frei, leaving a simple tap-in for Mullins to put the hosts in front.
 
 Fagundez  was still searching  for his first goal of the campaign at the start
 of  the match, and  he opened his account in the 29th when he took a pass from
 Chris Tierney and rifled a shot past Frei that beat the goalkeeper at his near
 post.
 
 Bunbury  made  it 3-0 six  minutes later  when he followed  up his own shot to
 score on the rebound from a tight angle.
 
 And  things  got even worse in  the 41st for  the Sounders as Bunbury played a
 ball  across  the field  for Fagundez, who  brought it down  off his chest and
 fired a shot inside the far post.
 
 New England had little to do after the break, but the Revs still added a fifth
 goal  in  the opening  minute as  Bunbury's right-wing  cross deflected in off
 Marshall.
