FOXBOROUGH, M.A. (WBTV) - Charlotte FC has won 3 games thus far this season, but none have come away from Bank of America. On Saturday night, they failed to get the franchise’s first road victory again.

This time, they fell to New England 2-1 as the Revolution snapped a 4 game losing streak.

New England would strike first in the 8th minute of the match. Adam Buksa put a perfect header in the back of the net as the Revolution took a 1 to nil advantage.

Charlotte would possess the ball for 60% of the first half but could not get the equalizer as heavy rains hit Gillette Stadium.

New England would expand their lead in the 72nd minute as Mike Polster would get lucky in front of the net as he got a shot past 3 defenders to put the Revolution up 2 to nil.

Charlotte’s first and only goal came in the 85th minute off the foot of Ti Ti Ortiz. Ortiz subbed into the game 13 minutes before he scored as the fresh legs would provide a spark, but it wasn’t enough.

With this loss, Charlotte FC is now 0-4 on the road this season.

Their next 4 games are on the road, but their first game is not a MLS contest.

On Wednesday, Charlotte FC will travel down I-85 to Greenville, SC for a US Open Cup match against the Greenville Triumph.

Then next Saturday, Charlotte FC gets back to MLS competition as they will be at Colorado.
