New England Revolution 2, Houston Dynamo 0 | 2017 MLS Match Recap
The New England Revolution kept their home winning streak going with a 2-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo Saturday afternoon. The win is New England's sixth straight at home, the longest-active home winning streak in MLS.

- HOMEGROWN STAR: Revolution midfielder Diego Fagundez had what Revs color-commentator Paul Mariner called his best game of the season, with the youngster taking players on - and beating them - and playing confidently across the field. And it came on a milestone day for the 22-year-old:
- ROAD TO WATCH: It's obviously still early in the season, but so far it's been a different story for Houston when playing at home compared to the road. The Dynamo are 3-0-0 in Houston, outscoring opponents 9-3. On the road, they're 0-2-0, and have been outscored 6-2.
