FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Rookie Henry Kessler scored his first MLS goal and the New England Revolution beat the Montreal Impact 3-1 on Wednesday night.

New England (4-3-6) won for the first time this season at Gillette Stadium. Montreal (5-7-1) lost its third straight match, getting outscored 10-3, but finished with 11 men for the first time in four matches. Montreal was without its leading scorer, Romell Quioto, who was out on a red-card suspension.

Kessler gave New England a 1-0 lead in first-half stoppage time by settling a deflected corner kick with his chest and sending it inside the post. Gustavo Bou made it 2-0 in the opening minutes of the second half with an individual effort from the top of the box.

Diego Fagundez scored his first goal of the season in the 65th for a 3-0 lead. Lassi Lappalainen got Montreal on the board in the 86th with a breakaway goal.

Montreal is one of three Canadian MLS teams playing home games in the United States because of COVID-19 border restrictions. The Impact are hosting games at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
