FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) | Steve Ralston’s penalty kick in the 90th minute snapped a tie and gave the New England Revolution a 2-1 victory against D.C. United that ended a six-match winless streak.

Taylor Twellman earned the penalty kick for the Revolution as he was fouled by United defender Bryan Namoff. Ralston then beat goalkeeper Josh Wicks from the 12-yard spot with a shot to the lower-right corner as New England (3-3-4) got its first victory since beating FC Dallas on April 4.

D.C. United (3-2-7) had a seven-match unbeaten streak snapped.

Brazilian midfielder Fred staked United to a 1-0 lead with a goal in the 36th minute, only to have Shalrie Joseph tie it in the 55th minute.


EL SALVADOR 0, JAMAICA 0: El Salvador and Jamaica played to a 0-0 tie in an international friendly match at RFK Stadium.

It was El Salvador’s final game before its 2010 World Cup qualifier against favored Mexico at home next Saturday.

El Salvador rested many of its top players ahead of its match against the Mexicans, but that didn’t disappoint the thousands of El Salvador fans, who accounted for nearly all the 30,313 who attended. They cheered raucously, waved flags and banged drums - heavily outnumbering the several hundred fans of Jamaica, who were barely noticeable.
