Larentowicz and Revs Save it Until Late

Jeff Larentowicz scored his first goal of the season to lift the New England Revolution to a 1-0 win over the Colubus Crew and into the MLS playoffs for the eighth season in a row. Lerentowicz hammered a free kick past Crew goalkeeper Kenny Schoeni, making his first start of the season for the Crew.

"All year I've been waiting for that,'' Larentowicz said, half-joking. "After that goal, we were able to exhale a little bit. For about four weeks we had our own destiny in our hands. Flying out here, we were talking about how we needed this and that to happen - and it seemed so far-fetched. I was just happy to get that last chance.''

Lerentowicz's goal ended the team's 320-minute scoreless drought, the longest in franchise history. The Revolution will face the Chicago Fire in a two-game, home-and-home series that begins Saturday at Gillette Stadium. It marks the fifth straight season that New England has met Chicago in the MLS postseason.
