Foxboro, Massachusetts – Columbus Crew SC extended its undefeated streak to six consecutive matches with a 1-0 road win over the New England Revolution at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night. The contest remained a 0-0 affair until the 85th minute, when Lalas Abubakar headed in the game-winning goal off a corner kick from Federico Higuain.

The first half of the contest saw both teams combine for a total of 19 shots to no avail, as neither team was able to impose its will on the other in the opening 45 minutes. The clearest chance for the Black & Gold came in the ninth minute, when Federico Higuain fired a shot inside the box that went over the crossbar. At the other end, Zack Steffen was forced into making three saves, helping Crew SC reach halftime with the score tied at zero.

With the win, the Black & Gold are now undefeated in their last six regular-season matches, a streak that started with a 2-2 home draw against the Revs. Over that span, Crew SC have posted a record of 4-0-2, outscoring opponents by a combined score of 9-3.

The result also meant that the Black & Gold secured their fourth consecutive shutout. Crew SC have gone 405 consecutive minutes without giving up a goal, a streak that is just nine minutes shy of the club record of 414 minutes from the 2011 MLS regular season.

The win also gives Crew SC a record of 7-3-3 for 24 points and a tie for second place in the MLS’ Eastern Division with New York City FC.

Up next, the Black & Gold travel to take on Sporting Kansas City at Children’s Mercy Park on Sunday, May 27 at 6:00 p.m. ET in a nationally televised match.
