FOXBOROUGH, MASS. — Kheli Dube scored his first goal in four months and the New England Revolution beat Chivas USA, 2-0, on Sunday.

Dube, who hadn't scored since New England's season opener March 21, ended a 302-minute scoreless streak for the Revolution (5-5-5) by taking a through ball from midfielder Shalrie Joseph and sprinting past a pair of Chivas defenders on the right wing before beating goalkeeper Zach Thornton with a 22-yard drive to the far left corner in the 60th minute.

Chivas (8-6-3) has scored only one goal during its four-game losing streak and is 1-5-2 in its last eight matches. Chivas is 0-4-1 in its last five games at New England.

Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis notched his fourth shutout of the season, facing seven first-half corner kicks by Chivas' Mariano Trujillo and making two superb stops.

Steve Ralston scored in the 77th minute for the Revolution. It was his fifth goal of the season.
